Darjeeling - Indie Alternative Indiepop Kraut Rock Psychedelic Live Act in Wuppertal

Darjeeling Short Info

Filled with 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 unconventional style. Although the trio’s retro and genre references cannot be denied, you can hardly find any 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 excellent songs and music that will nestlingly bed itself in your head.

Voll von vertracktem Songwriting, harmonischem Gesang und wuchtigen Arrangements sind Darjeeling halb Erben des Krautrock der 70er, halb Boygroup, halb Indie-Psychedelia. Auf der Bühne teils ekstatisch, teils schon fast poppig, aber immer auf den Punkt und mit einem großen Mittelfinger Richtung Mainstream, begeistern die drei Jungs vor Allem als exzellente Live-Band ohne Kompromisse. Halliger Gesang, durch Flanger und Tremolo geschossene Delay-Gitarren, die treibende Rhythmus-Sektion und eine billige italienische Orgel runden das unkonventionelle Gesamtbild ab.
Darjeeling stehen in der Tradition alter sowie aktueller Größen der Rockgeschichte, ohne aber jemals zu kopieren oder alteingesessenen Songstrukturen zu verfallen.
Post-Kraut – so nennen die Jungs ihr Genre, und beschreiben damit alles, was Ihre Musik ausmacht. Das heißt in diesem Fall: Einen Haufen erstklassiger Songs und Musik, die nicht mehr aus dem Kopf geht.

Jan Richard – vocals, guitars
Till Fabian – vocals, keyboards, organ, percussion
Markus Kresin – vocals, bass
