| The self-titled new album from German Alternative-Rock high-flyers Staubkind is an ultra-catchy emotional tour de force, graced with a massive production by Unheilig-producer Henning Verlage.
“And now you’re here, you’ve arrived… go catch your dreams, dust child!” These words narrated by a sonorous male voice in the intro of the new album fit hand in glove, as the third long player from German Alternative Rockers Staubkind really feels like finally arriving at a destination after a long journey. The songs are wonderfully consistent, are immediately catchy and bring out the entire bandwidth of emotions in the group’s music in a perfectly balanced interplay of massive walls of sound with fragile intimacy. Featuring a massive production from Unheilig-producer Henning Verlage, Staubkind’s newest outing effectively mingles sensitive moments (like in the hit singles “So nah bei mir” and “Kannst du mich sehn’”) with driving Alternative-Rock-attacks and a moving finale that slowly evolves into an orchestral climax.
All the while, Staubkind keeps music and lyrics unpretentious, direct and honest: cinematic moments, intimate emotions and the feeling of an unbridled summer storm. This is modern, German-language Alternative Rock music at its best! Go catch your dreams! Staubkind will be touring Germany with UNHEILIG (the German band, that sold more albums in Germany than Lady Gaga or Madonna!) in summer!
