After the first listen to LEICHTMATROSE everything seemed to be crystal clear to me. Another American band who tries to make their own interpretation of a Depeche Mode sound to show us their version of timeless powerful music. But it ain’t that easy!

What came out is quite remarkable. LEICHTMATROSE give us an album full of varieties reaching from radio-compatible Pop songs to more emotional songs like “der mond trägt ein trauriges gesicht” or “vom esel im galopp verloren”. It always sounds good, the guys always have catchy riffs, an atmospheric guitar-sound and great melodies. All of this is supported by the intensive, charismatic voice of singer Andres Stitz, who gives the often included melancholic parts his own sign and who gives the riffs the needed intensity. Not every track sounds good from the beginning but the album develops quickly into an evergreen.

According to this my result is: listen!
