Song of the Week: “Liebesrausch"


This funky synth-fectious dance rock tune has a way cool retro minimalistic edge to it. Think Kraftwork's "Pocket Calculator," or The Normal's "Warm Leatherette" with a dollop of Peaches' "Fuck The Pain Away" dirty beats for cheekiness. NYC's What Would Tilda Swinton Do, a self-proclaimed "lazy punk" band, claims this is their first foray into the world of disco and four-on-the-floor beats.

It's also their first official release in German. Austrian-Canadian lead singer and creative director Suzie Léger said the track was "an eruption of shock, rage, despair, confusion, sadness, and pride immediately after the break-up... you're lying on the floor, crying your heart out with a bottle of wine next to you." Regardless, as the track builds to a frenzy one can't help but tear off one's clothes and gyrate with reckless abandon, hence the song's apropos title "Liebesrausch" which translates from German into English as "Love Rush." Epic band name, too.
