WL//WH Track Of The Day: LISAWARS “Distanz”

Track Of The Day  LisaWars  

Longstanding German band based in Waldheim, Central Saxony, started in 2002, returns after about a year with a new exciting single “Distanz”.

The duo, made up of Jens (Keyboard, Synth) and Micha (Guitar, Vocals), takes out their frustrations ‘tanzen’ on alienated synthesisers, racing mechanical drum machines, sharp guitar riffs and anguished vocals in their distinctive minimal NDW style, awash with frozen melancholy and gritty reality, joining the dots between new wave, post-punk and goth.

Tight and urgent, dancy off-tempo rhythms trigger ominous undulating hypnotic low ends, swept by sparse skipping percussive patterns, pierced by obsessive, clinking guitar slivers alternating with curt and sharp guitar abrasions over relentless, abrasive male vocals and distant falling screams, shedding caustic angst and frustration into a disconnected state of disturbia.
