Back to the eighties, to the era of post-punk and new wave: synthesiser dominated but gloomy music venting industrial desperation from Manchester to West Berlin. Drangsal is true to the legacy of The Cure, Spandau Ballet, XTC and Morrissey, but with a more modern indie pop touch. And that eclectic mixture is working for the 23-year-old Berliner Max Gruber. He is storming the German speaking market with his emotional "Brachialpop" (Brute Pop) and furiously dramatic live shows.

Drangsal was booked at Eurosonic Noorderslag 1 time
