Watch: Grotto Terrazza Reveals New Single/Video "Der Zaubergeselle"

Munich-based post punk/new wave/experimental outfit Grotto Terrazza (aka Thomas Schamann of Bleib Modern), has revealed the video for his new single "Der Zaubergeselle".

The song is taken from his forthcoming sophomore album 'Kalte Köstlichkeiten', which will be out on August 26th via Cut Surface and Maple Death Records. Pre-order your copy here.

If his 2019 debut ‘Stumpfer Gegenstand’ (also co-released by Cut Surface and Maple Death) introduced us to Grotto Terrazza’s beautiful intimate translucent dark beat poetry set over art-punk ritmik, foggy nightclubs and musk-induced industrial malaise, Kalte Köstlichkeiten sets the record straight by adding a whole new dimension. 

Cold Delicacies (the literal translation) delivers so much more, 12 melting popsicles that furiously jump from dancefloor post-punk, brazen EBM, funk sleaze and smoked out cold-wave. What really ties Thomas’ musical world together is the scattered use of field recordings, musique concrete and quite literally... life, all sprinkled across his oeuvre, his personal secret weapon, turning an already detailed album into a scrap journal with laser focus.
