Drift into a dark EBM haze with Karger Traum’s video for “Das Ende”, a German language track from the Oklahoma City duo’s forthcoming LP third album “III”, which will be co-released by Fixed Rhythms and DKA Records.
Karger Traum is comprised of Blake Lusk and Taylor McKenzie and began when Blake suggested to Taylor back in 2016 that he improvise vocals over his solo project, Holy Siege. Taylor’s skilled ability to improvise German lyrics over Blake’s, cold, minimal, and pulsing production, invoked a project proudly alluding to German industrial and electronic music forbears, such as the more acoustic Einstürzende Neubauten on the one hand, and the more synth-driven Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft, with a dusky dash Suicide’s caustic psychedelia and experimentalism.
With this ever-evolving and dynamic formula, the pair decided to dive headlong into composing music as Karger Traum. Now, the duo heralds their third full-length album with shadowy clip for the first track from the release, “Das Ende”.
Watch the stylish video, directed by Trey Millward, below:
Karger Traum’s III is out July 31st, via a joint release through Fixed Rhythms and DKA Records.
