Staatseinde - Darüber Reden Wir Nicht

“From a galaxy far away, they came to earth and decided to stay”.You could call them Visitors… but they might have arrived here long before we did.

Staatseinde spent their recent earth time creating their third EP called Darüber Reden Wir Nicht. Combining their own Neue Niederländische Welle with synthwave and EBM, these three extraterrestrial musicians adapted four European languages to spread their message.

First track on the A-side is Staatsanthem, a heroic soundtrack meant as a hymn to their home planet. Next up is title track Darüber Reden Wir Nicht, followed by No Return. Two bold, minimalistic EBM like tracks performed in a much harder style than they’ve ever done before. Moving to B-side. Laat Het Gebeuren warns about the selfdestructive nature of mankind, and sometimes mother earth answers. Grenztruppenführer is about the strict door policies that some nightclubs have, a wall between east and west, politics versus freedom, will you get in? Grenztruppenführer decides. Closing off with Vi Åker Dit, which started off as the Swedish translation of their hitsong Ruimtevaart Vooruit. A call to fly away, to another dimension.

Even though this EP was created on earth, it’s already much spoken about beyond the boundaries of our solar system… and now it will find you.

Staatseinde ‎– Dreiheit

A long, long time ago an extraterrestrial music companionship landed on planet earth and decided to adopt the conformation of mankind and soon started creating music. Ten years later, after several crew changes and after sending their ship back home with the last separating extraterrestrial the two remaining members decided to stay on earth and become fully humanoid. The band discribes their music as ’Neue-Niederländische-Welle’, taken from the German ”Neue Deutsche Welle” genre. Their music follows a similar pattern as the NDW which originally derived from punk rock and new wave. The early band had a punk attitude and were highly influenced by rock and wave. The NDW has come to be acknowledged as a forerunner of electroclash, one of the styles the band was influenced by in their later days which also includes indietronic, digital hardcore and 90’s dancemusic. Since the departure of drummer Doctor Slacht-Zeuger and Frau Umlaut a new era with an even more electronic approach including sequencing and drum programming will be deployed.
