The Whitest Boy Alive.
With euro-dream names like Erlend øye, Marcin Oz, Sebastian Maschat and Daniel Nentwig you almost forget these hard-as-nails Germans are behind the fluffy plucked-pop sound on the singles and ep's that group The Whitest Boy Alive have put out.
This is where my extreme jealousy of the european continent kicks in, as they are currently only playing in Prague, Vienna and Munich and making their way to London in May.
Sadly, they apparenly had some US gigs lined up but they were cancelled for what I can only assume was bad ticket sales and not enough promo.
Starting off as an electronica band and slowing morphing into the experimental foursome they are now has been an interesting journey for the boys, but they come out on top most certainly.
I love the fluff.
Cheers to Justin Tyce for the nudge on these Germanians.
