Be there

Read about the French band Holstenwall on Pandora (www.misspandora.fr) today and I’m hooked. Their moody, retro sound seems inspired by New Order (or Joy Division if you prefer), The National and the Velvet Underground.

Joy Division – Love Will Tear Us Apart

The National – Mistaken for Strangers

The Velvet Underground – Heroin

These photos featuring the band were taken by Chloé Le Drezen and are meant to evoke the cinematic style of Cabinet of Dr. Caligari by Robert Wiene.

As of now, the band primarily plays venues in Paris. Next up, is a free show at the Be There Bar in Paris on Wednesday, March 24. Check out their music at www.myspace.com/holstenwall
