{Die Romantik}

I was fortunate enough to hear about this band (through writing cd reviews for various zines) when they were just getting started and on ocassion I've bored just about everyone I know to tears about their unique musical style.

After releasing a couple of EP's Die Romantik are about to finally release their first full-length album titled Narcissist’s Waltz. (*Note...pictured here is the cover of Die Romantik's Lacrimosa EP cover by Jonathan Weiner, because I love it). The New York trio (who met in Paris) got their name from a German compilation of romantic classical composers from the early 19th century, which is worth noting when trying to describe the type of music they play. Die Romantik effortlessly blend classical and pop music with a French accent. All while concocting lush harmonies and sharing the songwriting credits evenly three ways.
