Locas in Love

stefanie schrank

Their songs are about loneliness and ruin and the confidence that can be gained from looking into the blackness; they are sung to simple bass figures and to motor rhythms, over which sometimes arpeggios sparkle from rusty analog synthesizers - beauty from scrap metal, or perhaps more precisely: beauty from the sound material of almost forgotten visions of the future. They have been touring and releasing ever since, though mostly in Germany and bordering European countries. It was formed in the fall of 2001 in by Björn Sonnenberg and Stefanie Schrank, Jan Niklas Jansen joined a few months later. Into this sonic landscape, Stefanie inserts lyrics full of surreal and surrealistic moments and presents a very personal and intimate analysis of the future, bodies, neoliberalism, patriarchy, and depression. The abyss, humour and levity aren't mutually exclusive in this strange incarnation of pop.

Stefanie Schrank is a visual artist and bass player of the band Locas In Love from Cologne. Some of the members of Locas In Love are also involved in the poppier project that released its debut album on Virgin in 2007 which spawned some minor hit singles. German indie pop band founded in 2001 in Cologne. It's a machine that works on its own and that's why it's always on the brink of explosion, and the explosion: that's the all-important step from being lonely to opening to the other. Their lyrics are mostly in German.

. When we encounter other people in their songs, they are described as machines. They are one of Germany's best-known unknown bands. We travel with her through the universe as in the cosmic music of the seventies, the models of this sound and this motor skills are groups like Harmonia, New! Of course, it is machines that live and that incessantly generate desire and erotic attraction. But the glittering: These are not stars, it's just hovering scrap.

Locas In Love

stefanie schrank

Irresistibly enigmatic, a movie made of sound, noises like paintings. This album is now her solo debut, a quiet and cool record that is easily overlooked in her dreamlike, flickering insincerity. Her synth sounds have a super-concrete clarity while simultaneously being frantic, ecstatic and dreamy against the slow tempi of enraptured disco beats. Makes the ear awake for the strange entanglement of motor and vitality, tiredness and excitement, resigned and orgiastic sighing. They are championed by other artists such as The National or who plays guitar on 'Saurus' and his former band that took Locas In Love as a special guest on their last two tours in Germany. Suitable for teenagers to middle-aged music lovers. The music that Stefanie Schrank creates with deceptively low musical and lyrical means is in truth rich and big and of restless grandeur.

Between singing and being sung, between activity and passivity, there is no difference here or between life and inanimate things. So it is with their entire music, which adheres to a great deal of self-reference at the first hearing, something Monadisches that initially seems alien and repellent. At the same time, her voice sounds as if she is flying over from a waking dream; from a state in which not the ego sings, but the id. And so we go through the universe, carried by rhythmic satellite beeps and silvery music spheres, and let the gaze wander through the blackness in which it occasionally sparkles auspiciously. They can be compared to bands like , , , , , , , , , or German art rockers in their wide array of musical spectres held together by the distinct voices of Björn Sonnenberg and Stefanie Schrank. Locas In Love is influenced by a wide variation of musical styles.
