CMJ 2k7 Preview: Die Romantik

Die Romantik is a three piece from Brooklyn that plays a brooding sort of pop music with an interesting epic, yet theatrical flair. Think Belle and Sebastian mixed with Radiohead mixed with a touch of turn of the century chamber music (twentieth century, not twenty first). I haven't heard their entire debut album, but I'm definitely intrigued and can't wait to hear more of this promising band at CMJ. They'll be joined on stage by Division Day, Air Traffic, Dragonette, Arizona, and Christopher Denny, so don't miss it!

Nice description of the band. You are right to be intrigued and to not be able to wait to hear more. Die Romantik performs emotive music with incredible sincerity and, well, emotion. And what stage presence!!!

They seem to have instant appeal to any listener seeking more to music that thumping bass and monotonous ryhtms. This music has texture; it's alive.

I may be seen as biased. But I am not.

You're in for a treat. Enjoy.
