Garage Rock basics with psychedelic and wave elements on pop melodies, or simply First Wave Gurrlcore, as Gurr describe it in their own words. This is Gurr’s music. The band consists of Andreya Casablanca and Laura lee, two friends that met at university. Their debut album “In My Head” was released last autumn and was outstandingly well-received from the beginning – even internationally.
Four broken hearts that the swell of the city flushed into the smokiest bars like litter: That’s Isolation Berlin. No-one can describe their songs better than they can themselves: “We cut them out of our tortured hearts to give to the world! To free some tormented souls of their pain, heal their wounds and to make isolation a little more bearable.”
The album “Fun” first put Die Nerven on the map in 2014. Spiegel Online called it “one of this decade’s most important and best German records”. And even former Sonic Youth member Thurston Moore celebrated their work. In 2016, the young punk band entered the theatre world. They provided the sound for Armin Petras’ staging of the German book “Die Erfindung der Roten Armee Fraktion durch einen manisch-depressiven Teenager im Sommer 1969“.
