Rebentisch is a pure wave project. Concentrating on this has given the berlin band around mastermind Sven Rebentisch a fast growing audience and has made them an insiders tip within the scene. Rebentisch's songs are a constant companion to many fans wherever they go, whether it's the dancefloor or the terrace in moonlight.
Meantime the complete back catalogue of Rebentisch is sold out. Lucky thus, who owns the publications of earlier days. Lucky as well is the waiting waver, for Rebentisch brings the goodies in spring 2009: the new album unites all of the strengths of Rebentisch and takes the listeners on a journey through the eighties with side trips to the present and future.
"Herz zerrissen" ("torn heart") paints sounds with a wide spectrum from dreamy ("Die Suche"/the search) to fast forward ("Erinnerungsfetzen"/fractions of memory). Old school analog sounds and pleasant waveguitars are mixed with the electronic sound of the new millenium. While some tracks remind one of Welle:Erdball or Derriere Le Miroir, the various remixes sound like Massive Attack or Portishead. The core of the album are poetical german lyrics of a rare quality.
If Anne Clark would sing in german with And One as her band, if she'd be pure New Wave and if Robert Smith would play guitar in this imaginary all-star-band, Rebentisch would have real competition. Until that happens New Wave fans with a love for lyric have no other choice: Rebentisch it is.
Oh, of course, you DO have a choice! You can listen to the complete album at afmusic for free, you can download them in all the popular download-shops, buy them in i-net musicstores or wait for the "real world release". It's coming. afmusic also has a compilation of old Rebentisch material to listen to and for sale.
