Alexis Blue – Tell Me Where To Go

I guess it is hard to write about music and bands when you have a really close connection to them, but then again, music is always subjective and very personal. So fuck it, right? Back in 2007 I moved to Liverpool to study. I spent three years there at John Moores University (rather a poli than a cunt, they say). And throughout those years, there were two bands that I closely connect to this time. One were the Wombats, local heroes who were just blowing up during my time there.Read More

Cosby – As Fast As We Can

When you start working in the music industry you naturally end up making friends who work at labels, managements, booking agencies or whatever it is you can do with music to make a living. Over the course of the last few years I’ve met plenty of people. Some are total morons, some like to brag, some you meet just briefly and some become trusted allies and friends. It must have been around this time a year ago, that one of those good friends of mine mentioned Cosby for the firstRead More

Beach House – Depression Cherry

I can’t really remember when I first heard a Beach House song. I don’t know if it was a song from their first, second or third record. When I think about it long enough I might remember the day, the time or the details and whereabouts. But right now I don’t want to know. Beach House have always been this kind of dream-like band. Existing whenever I felt like I needed to daze off. It’s in their sound. To be honest, I think their ‚hits‘ are just called ‚hits‘ becauseRead More

Boy – We Were Here

It’s been a long time since that song with handclaps and piano graced our radio stations. Boy came out of nowhere and drove everyone (starting from my sister, to my mom and even my grandma would have tapped her feet to that song if she would have been alive then) a little crazy. Once the two adorable girls had taken over Germany, entering the top 10 with their debut gold album Mutual Friends they took the next step and conquered the world. From their debut in 2011 they were constantlyRead More

MS MR – How Does It Feel

MS MR – How Does It Feel – the follow up to 2013’s ‚Secondhand Rapture‘ is everything what you’d expect from the Brooklyn based band. Trying its best to follow the debut’s success without sounding like a mediocre repetition. But could it have been bolder? Or is it fine for what it is?Read More

AB Syndrom – Hey Herz

AB Syndrom have released their new album ‚Hey Herz‘, an eclectic mix of UK-Electronic, Post-Dubstep elements and German lyrics. How does that all fit together? Well just listen to it and you will understand! So let’s get the facts out of the way first. Yes, the four pice is based in Berlin. No, they are not originally from there but from a smaller town near Frankfurt (does anybody outside of Germany actually care if a band is originally from a different city then they are based in currently??). Their bioRead More

Foals – What Went Down (Official Video)

Foals are back! What Went Down is a hell of a single! After an unexpected Facebook snippet, a BBC Radio One primetime premiere we finally have a visual for the song that actually makes the whole thing even tastier. I’ve got a longer history with this band, dating back to my time in the UK. Back then I ignored them. Even though their first two albums were good albums, looking back. But what really got me going was this song. And then there was this whole album proper rocking, properRead More
By Alex, Carlo & Daniel A couple of weeks back, we talked about female bedroom producers and how they are the hottest stuff right now. We are still certain that that is true. And someone from the Independent must have read our article too, prompting this copy cat thing to pop up two days after our post. But the article got us thinking here at the WWATA-HQ: where else are female artists leaving their mark these days? So we dug into our own music catalogues looking for the same thingRead More

Ab Syndrom – Jalousien (Official Video)

AB Syndrom are back with their new video for ‚Jalousien‘. And it’s quite brilliant in its simplicity. When I was a kid, I was always scared of people being able to look into our bathroom when I was going to have a shower (well I wasn’t a kid, let’s say during my teenage years). I spent weeks fiddling around the Jalousien (the shutter) looking for the perfect blind spot. Either the shutters were set to too far down, or too far up. I was never really satisfied. AB Syndrom playRead More
