Feline and Strange: Electro-Wave Cabaret from Germany

Berlin duo, Feline and Strange forged their own niche within the busy world of musical genres by pioneering a brand of electro-wave cabaret that borrows much of its sound from the aesthetics of classical compositions, yet it is punched out with an eccentric punk attitude. Now, the pair are releasing their new album ‘Out’, which they will be promoting on their headline UK tour.

Taking their audience on an unpredictable sonic journey, Feline and Strange shift between styles without warning, creating a jarring, yet intriguing listening experience that often juxtaposes huge silences with wild rants and maelstroms of unique instrumentation. Consisting of the multi-talented Feline Lang (opera and tango singer/ director, multimedia artist, vocalist and pianist) who has been described as ‘One of Germany´s most flamboyant ladies in the music-scene’ (Brigitte), and Christoph Klemke (punk drummer, sound designer, percussionist and orchestra cellist), the pair are conquering new grounds when it comes to musical orientation.

The duo’s upcoming album was produced by Jason Rubal (Amanda Palmer, Robert Smith, Garbage) and was written in just two weeks by Feline during a residency in Marseille. Her world turned in this time from a Germany welcoming thousands of refugees with open arms, to a world wide political hate crisis, thus explaining the uninhibited cynical rage and the terrible sadness in these 11 epic songs. Inspired by a wide range of topics, the music of Feline and Strange stands by itself, drawing upon human feelings, political and feminist issues.
