about

With their debut album “Strange Encounter” Dirk Lakomy (ex Umbra Et Imago, In My Rosary, producer of Derriere Le Miroir) and Tobias Birkenbeil (DNS, Cytron, composer of movie scores) demonstrate that music influenced by electronic new wave in addition to electroclash, punk and EBM is still able to be great fun in times of a musical sensory overload of the genre without sounding too stale.
Music to dance to (“Amygdata”), song-oriented, hypnotic (“Sebastiane”), sometimes dark-melancholic, with a driving beat (“Crimetime”), but also catchy-trendy (“Cairo”) accompanies the listener throughout the ten album songs.
In addition to Tobias Birkenbeil’s charismatic vocals, guest vocalist Stella B. rounds off the singing part which combination in certain songs is reminiscent of the best times of “Derriere Le Miroir” (“That’s All”, “Sleeper”).
The album’s musical range is completed by the last track “Push It To The Max” featuring a symbiosis of dark minimal electro and “A Flock Of Seagulls”.
With „Strange Encounter“ LAKOBEIL reside far away from short-lived club concepts and respond with a high individual quality, a love of experimentation and good songwriting which the band is going to demonstrate on several future live concerts.
