It was already foreseeable in 2021 that a new New German Wave would flood through the country, which is more than just a déjà vu of the 80s. Many artists and bands are giving the indulgent disco-ball sound of the best decade of all time a makeover and helping post-punk, new wave and synthpop to a second youth these days.
Temmis have been at the forefront of this revival since their single "Wenn du da bist" from the EP of the same name. The newcomers from Tübingen cross the danceable club sound of yesteryear with modern DIY production possibilities, add gloomy vocals as well as technoid arrangements that go straight to the legs and round the whole thing off with clever self-irony. This works so well and sounds so tightly recorded that it must be astonishing how the band realizes this style stunt virtually off the cuff. A fun project that is preparing to give Generation Z a coming-of-age soundtrack. So who knows what they are still capable of live?
are capable of. (Nils Schlechtriemen)
