Das Beat share new single & video "Paragraph 1" out now via Arbutus Records.
Founded in Berlin in 2021 with the release of their "Identität EP", Das Beat, a duo of made up of Agor of Blue Hawaii & German actress Eddie Rabenberg, are back with their new single “Paragraph 1”.
Speaking about the track, the band said
"'Paragraph 1' is a moody dark song, written and preformed in German about the disgust one feels towards someone they once loved. It’s haunted and chanting vocals are held together by a chugging beat dotted with scratchy synths, industrial screeches, and pounding drums.
It’s a punky fuck you kind of ode."
Blending sounds of New Wave, Dark Disco, Indie, & Dance, their sound is unified by the vocals of Eddie Rabenberger, sung and belted in both German and English. Amidst the spirited lyrics lies a strong dancey pulse, pinning down the duo’s dreamy atmospherics, guitars and percussion.
The duo is half-Canadian and half-German. Dj Kirby (Blue Hawaii), moved to Berlin from Montreal in 2018. Eddie is a theatre actor originally from a small town in southern Germany. Together they find an alluring symbiosis - like Giorgio Moroder meets Nico, or Gina X Performance finds The Prodigy.
