Boomkat Product Review:
Regina and Günther Janssen write two "songs of resilience in a world that feels invincible, but was struck to heart by a virus", straddling gloomy electro and Medieval European court music.
While we might all be getting a little tired of the Corona jams narrative, it's a reality it would be disingenuous to ignore. Enduring German duo Donna Regina tackle it head-on with their new single, exploring modernity, cityscapes and history in a typically obtuse-but-lovely way.
'Welt in einer Stadt' illustrates loneliness and solitude as a tin can beat accompanies Regina Janssen's instantly recognisable vocals and Günther's fairytale, musicbox keys. 'Ich sehe den Blumen beim Sterben zu' is weirder still, with harpsichord and accordion sounds peering into German history as it reflects on our present reality. If you've ever heard a Donna Regina record, you probably love them as much as we do - feels like a bit of a thrill that they're still around.
