Limited Edition of strictly 250 copies, on YELLOW Vinyl. WERNER KARLOFF and DAN SHAMBLE have been working together under the name NEUE STRASSEN since the mid-2010s. Even though a number of Mexican Darkwave/Electro/Postpunk- acts have emerged in recent years, particularly thanks to the networking of Y&C, there is still a lot to discover from this country.

While the first album and a single were previously only available as imports in Europe, the all new album "Last Days" is now being released in Europe, and should therefore give the duo a real boost in attention. Not only the band name NEUE STRASSEN, but also song titles such as "Unterwegs" and German-language samples show a clear connection to Germany. The opener "Attack on the City" is an electro smasher that will get Club- and Concert-goers dancing straight away. Powerful, straightforward and catchy...that has real hit potential right from the start of the album. “Erased Thoughts” is a little more sedate and dark-wavy, but is also beautifully dynamic and freshly produced. “Golden Cage” is based on 90s Dark Electro, combined with some Gothrock-guitar sounds.

“Suburban Distress” is strongly rooted in the New Wave of the 80s, while “The Witch” should reveal its qualities live, the rockiest song on “Last Days”. “Unterwegs” is something for the Minimal-freaks and “Warm Sands” finally brings back almost the good old Batcave sound.

The influences are therefore diverse. What makes NEUE STRASSEN’s sound so special, is the combination of extremely danceable rhythms, playful electronic sounds, cool vocals and wavy guitars. All of this is excellently produced, mixed and mastered in a very contemporary way, so that the album is very catchy, but still retains a few rough edges. Another inside tip that should quickly conquer larger audiences. In any case, the density of hits is high.
