How was your experience on the new Ear Candy Music?Let us know!
Despite the commitment to their craft and initial grassroots success, securing label support proved difficult as they refused to sing in German and their sober tone lacked the shimmer of pop and optimism that executives felt formulaic to success. Still, the band persisted with the duo of Elbern and Jogwer sharing vocal duties and song credits, each informing the other’s compositions until Elbern halved the song production and left the band in 1987. Continuing to perform and record as a three piece, the band eventually found roots with FunFactory!, an independent label based in Münster whose manager, Axel Seitz, shared the band’s appreciation of the Velvet Underground and Andy Warhol’s Factory vision, urging them to forego releasing singles and focus on a full-length. Released in 1987 and now remastered by Josh Bonati for vinyl release through Dais Records, If Two Worlds Kiss is a seminal offering to the canon of dark wave’s DNA - a fluid lesson in melody, mood, and pacing - each track continuously adding to the journey like a unique push-pin on a map of melancholy.
Defined by their dynamic song-writing, their debut added a new urgency and depth to guitar-driven gothic rock by allowing fast songs such as the lead single “Walking on Both Sides” to possess the same sullen punch and melancholy as slower anthems like “When the Hammer Comes Down”, which derives its power on the downbeat. More rhythmic variety is added through beat-driven dance floor tracks with triumphant singalong choruses like “That Was You”, showing they could swing hard - as well as swirl… Dais Records is proud to present the first ever official reissue of this classic deathrock / darkwave masterpiece.
Limited edition vinyl is repackaged from the original art assets, in a 24 pt reverse board jacket housing a euro inner sleeve with lyrics. Including a bonus track, “A Moment Sometimes”, previously unavailable on the original release and exclusive the the Dais Records reissued vinyl edition.
