Die Zärtlichkeit – Die Zärtlichkeit II

Cologne based Die Zärtlichkeit (Tenderness) have just released the follow up to April’s self titled debut EP. It includes the recent single So Einfach War Es Nie.

Like the first EP there is more than a few 1980’s influences running through this one whether it’s The Smiths, revivalists such as their recently returned peers Northern Portrait or new Birmingham act The Pale Kings. The vocals of Andreas Fischer remind me of Northern Portrait’s Stefan’s which is no bad thing! The guitars of Tobias Emmerich jangle in unison and the results are catchy C86 inspired indie-pop efforts none more so than Am Wendepunkt (At The Turning Point). Retro indiepop at it’s best and a trip down memory for an old ‘un like me!

Die Zärtlichkeit II is available on limited cassette and digital formats. You can purchase the EP direct from the band.
