Krautrock is a generic name for the experimental music scenes that appeared in Germany in the late 1960s and gained popularity throughout the 1970s, especially in Britain. The term is a result of the English-speaking world’s reception of the music at the time and not a reference to any one particular scene, style, or movement, as many krautrock artists were not familiar with one another. BBC DJ John Peel in particular is largely credited with spreading the reputation of krautrock outside of the German-speaking world.
Largely divorced from the traditional blues and rock & roll influences of English and American rock music up to that time, the period contributed to the birth and evolution of electronic music, ambient music, alternative music and New Age music. Key artists associated with the tag include Can, Amon Düül II, Ash Ra Tempel, Faust, Popol Vuh, Cluster, Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, Neu!, and Kraftwerk.
After a two year hiatus, Diva Int. return to the stage with their soon to be released “Hollow Man EP”.
Sounding more mature than ever, the four piece, consisting of Arne Buss (voc/guit), Achim Koellner (guit), Manne Uhlig (dr) and JP Genkel (bass) combine stoic beats and dreamy landscapes to create a uniquely “Germanic” atmosphere, whilst hitting the “International” pop-appeal target head-on.
Lyrically speaking, these elements effortlessly twist dark brooding sound-scapes with the singer’s uniquely styled melancholic ruminations to form the perfect soundtrack to 21st century modernity.
