FUCK YEAH alexander geist! LOVE!!!
Part Evelyn Waugh novel, part silver screen star, Alexander Geist is the velvet voice of a new epoch in pop music. Embracing the dry wit of Morrissey, the soundscape of Moroder, and the sensibilities of Manet, he was born for the spotlight. Cinematic, lush, wry, with his melodramatic lyrics and insistent melodies, he has created the genre he calls, “morose disco soul.”
Recorded between New York, Berlin, London and Dublin, his songs capture the flavour of a certain international demi-monde; the glamour, the tears, the raucous parties and the untimely deaths. Compared to everyone from Bowie to Dietrich, Alexander Geist has nevertheless created out a unique sound for himself, at once nostalgic and contemporary.
Backed by saxophonist Matthias Hofmann and violinist Anna Mimouni, he has consistently wowed his audience with a live show that is energetic, dark and always compulsively danceable. Having played throughout Europe from Paris to Zagreb, in the chicest hot spots, the most roaring nightclubs, and all the dens of iniquity along the way he has acquired a taste for success. But that was just breakfast; now he is ready for the rest of the world.
