Das Kitsch – „Federn“ + Exclusive Interview

1. Hello, thank you for your time, please introduce yourself in a few words!

We are „Das Kitsch“ a threepiece from Augsburg and Munich.

2. Please give us an update about – new single, new album, tour dates, new videos?!

Our new album is called „Teer und Federn“ and drops on october 22nd. We already released two singles and are now planing some shows in germany for spring 2022. Go check out our FB and IG channels for further details.

3. Name 5 things we all should know about you as a band?!

– We really enjoy good grooves and tight rhythmsections

– We consider ourselves as a „live band“… whatever that means
– We try to make our band sound bigger than 3 musicians

– We think that there are still people who like listening to full-length albums
– There is good kitsch and bad kitsch … and everything in between

4. What fashion style or brand would best describe your music?

Second Hand: Take something that already exists, something old,  twist it, change it, and than make it your own.

5. What’s your songwriting process?

It used to be Martin bringing some songs he wrote on guitar and then arranging it as a band. Nowadays we try to write in a room together. It feels more natural and there’s a stronger connection between lyrics and music.

6. If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?

Racism and sexism in the industry. There’s a ton of things that suck… but for us, as privileged white males, it often don’t suck as much as for others. And that has to change!

7. Tell us more about your songs! Topics! Message!?

Our first record „Komm mal klar“ focused completely on love. It dealt more with the inner thoughts and feelings. With „Teer und Federn“ we tried to change the perspective and write songs that reflect what we see in our daily life. There are two sides on this record. „Federn“ is musically the more brighter and happier side, while „Teer“ feels darker and rougher. We tried to convey a feeling of uneasiness regarding the current social and political situation, which is, musically and lyrically, in some songs very present and concrete and in some more abstract and hidden. The message of these songs are up to personal interpretation. Important is, that we (or the perspective of the songwriter) dosen’t exclude him/herself of the issues/problems/etc. adressed in the songs. We’re in this together, and maybe we should think about changing some things. We’re not trying to write political songs, but we’re also not trying to not have a political opinion and not letting it influence our writing.
