Darjeeling

Wuppertal, Deutschland Band

Filled with of songwriting, harmonious singing and bold arrangements, Darjeeling are halfway heirs of 70‘s Kraut music, half boy band and half Indie-Psychedelia. On stage they deliver an ecstatic, rousing show. Though their performances never resign pop appeal completely, you can always recognize a decent f*** you in direction of mainstream music. Reverberant voices, flanger- and tremolo-pierced delay guitars and a cheap Italian organ top off the band’s style. Although the trio’s retro and genre references cannot be denied, you can hardly find paying homage to common song structures. “Post-Kraut“ is what they call their music and this almost catches every inch of their work, meaning: a bunch of songs they love and music that will nestlingly bed itself in your head.
