ABOUT THE ALBUM
We are not DEAD. “DEAD” is a new beginning
Das Moon presents „Dead” a long awaited new album with 40 minutes of music, 10 songs in electro and synth-pop esthetics accompanied by new wave harmonies and a moving voice of charismatic Daisy K.
„Dead” is exploring dark spaces of electronic music with a touch of attractive synthpop. Sound design is dominated by analog and virtual synthesizers, huge basses, prepared guitars, raw percussions, and distressing field recorded samples. “Dead” goes deep into hidden emotions, from narcotic beginnings of love, to where love ends, to farewells, excitement, euphory and fear, craziness and internal void. “Dead” declares love and is ironically commenting everyday situations. “Dead” is a new beginning.
In 2 songs Das Moon was joined on saxophone by Tomasz Świtalski, member of Polish cult punk bands Kryzys and Brygada Kryzys. This is a Das Moon’s tribute to Polish alternative music and its spirit of freedom.
Third album of Das Moon has also been produced by Pawel Gawlik (Paul Gavlic), final mix and mastering was done by a 2014 Grammy winner Jacek Gawłowski (JG MasterLab). With “Dead” album Das Moon continues its editorial cooperation with Requiem Records, a label devoted for last 20 years to promotion and releases of most ambitious musical projects in Poland.

ABOUT DAS MOON
Das Moon are: Daisy K. – vocalist and lyricist (poet Kamila Janiak) and 2 musicians and music producers: DJ Hiro Szyma (synths, percussions, album cover art) and Musiol (synths, guitars, programming, concert visuals and production of band’s video clips).
The band was started in 2010. Its first album Electrocution was released in 2011 (Polskie Radio / Warner), the second one – Weekend in Paradise in 2014 (Requiem Records / Sonic). The band was intensively touring in Poland and abroad including shows at Mayday (15th Anniversary Polish edition)
in Katowice Spodek, Electronic Beats Festival in Gdańsk, Castle Party, in Bolków, Poland, Wave Gotik Treffen (WGT) in Lepizig (Germany). Das Moon was sharing stages with such artists as Jazzanova, Squarepusher, James Blake, Camouflage, Front Line Assembly, De/Vision and many others.
In the years before creation of Das Moon, Musiol and Szyma acted as Rh+ [a joint of audiovisual performers], – experimental electronic music and art collective, published 3 albums and presented their multimedia shows in clubs, concert halls and at music and theatre festivals in Poland, Germany, Austria and Italy among others.
Electronic, industrial, synthesizer and guitar sounds of such bands and as Kraftwerk, Pink Floyd, Einstürzende Neubauten, Depeche Mode, The Prodigy and Sonic Youth have been first inspirations for musical creation of Das Moon. On this basis was born the original contemporary sound of DAS Moon now presented to the public on “Dead” album
