While the last week brought me to Sunderland, Hamburg and Lillehammer in Norway, the song selection of the week comes with a lot of new tracks by German artists. However, some feel really international. Thus, I hope you enjoy the listen.
John Diva & The Rockets of Love – God Made Radio
After American Amadeus, John Diva & the Rockets of Love are about to release their third studio album in March 2023. God Made Radio is the first appetizer. Look forward to more music by the German hair metal band.
The Aerial Unit – Infinite Echo
The Aerial Unit is a truly international project: singer and composer Victoria Hillestad has Mexican and Norwegian roots, while drummer Julian Erhardt is from Germany. I loved to listen to this song.
Stratovarius – Frozen In Time
The Finnish symphonic metal band are simply delivering great songs like this one. Looking forward to their album Survive, which will be released next week.
Ellyster – Fließbandprodukt
Sandro Kallinger headed the ska punk band Ramazuri – now he is trying solo as Ellyster. His solo debut Paradies is about to be released in fall. This song feels promising already.
Juli – Fette Wilde Jahre
Juli does Juli music: A very reliable sound by the band from Gießen, North of Frankfurt in Germany. Pop-rock by the band around lead singer Eva Briegel – I like it!
AnnenMayKantereit – 3 Tage am Meer
Another pop-rock band from Germany: AnnanMayKantereit are from my home town Cologne. They have a lot of national and international reputation. I am typically not that much into their music, but I definitely like their new song, which is translating to “Three days at the Sea”,
Benne – Lichtjahr
Benne (originally Benedikt) is a German pop musician from Heilbronn). Very nice rhythmic track with a characteristic voice.
Ann Can’t Talk – Hellblau
Indie-pop from Hennef, a neighbor city of Sankt Augustin, Germany, where I grew up. Very interesting indie-pop sound – this song definitely deserves a nomination. And some support for my Rhineland home region as well.
Misha Kovar – Immer wenn du mein Herz berührst
Misha Kovar is in fact a Czech artist, who is nowadays doing a mixture of schlager and pop, which sometimes even mixes with German schlager elements. Her original background is being an actress, however. Her new song feels a lot like schlager – but I think it is a really nice listen.
Eros Ramazotti – Battito Infinito
Eros Ramazotti is having his 60th birthday next year. Before that, the Rome-born artist releases singles like Barriro Infinito – a great Italo-pop listen.
LOI – Gold
The civil first name of LOI is Leonie. The pop artist is from Mannheim in Germany. Beautiful, melodic track with a nice modern touch.
Dylan – Nothing Lasts Forever
I ran in a couple of songs by the British artist Dylan so far – and I love her sound in any of them so far. Nothing Lasts Forever is no exception to that.
Alex Vargas – Pages
The last new release of this Songs of the Week edition is coming from Denmark. Nice pop song with a slight folk touch.
