The gloomy electronic dark wave beat 'Durch' by the German band 'Magnetband' hits the dance floor hard. Full of the kind of soaring melancholy that I think can only be expressed in the German language, the band also manages to infuse danceable EBM and even minimal electro elements.
When it comes to comparable artists, the duo has already done very well for themselves, naming names like Boy Harsher, Velvet Condom, She Past Away and Schwefelgelb. I can confirm this at this point and if these names appeal to you, then definitely give 'Durch' a listen.

Magnetband about 'Durch'
The track was born from and is addressing the immense pressure to deliver something. We were literally "durch" (done) when it came to songwriting. Therefore, the song musically and lyrically switches between laughter and tears, good and evil, red wine and bright light.
