It’s 2020, Europe’s curbs are folding up, Hamburg is under curfew: Luis Schwamm is traveling from Cologne to occupy Linus Kleinlosen’s sofa bed for a few weekends. This is the birth of Noth, a band in search of the outer limits of German-language indie pop.
It sounds like a British post-punk band playing a singer-songwriter album. Empathic storytelling like Andy Shauf, musical and linguistic wit like Höchste Eisenbahn and energetic outbursts like Black Country, New Road characterize the band’s sound. Noth’s musical escapades leave coffee and red wine stains on the sofa bed and “No Future” patches on Frank Sinatra’s gala jacket. Woody note, fruity finish. For their second album, Noth have collected “Songs of Disappearance”; tilting images of protest song and hymn of praise, of punk and Zen. Because something is disappearing everywhere that is worth watching disappear: The former local pub has to make way for the hip cocktail bar, the finished trainee teacher flees from his own farewell party, and the indie band falls victim to gentrification. In 2023, Noth make the step from the sofa bed to the studio to the medium-sized stages of Germany and provide varied entertainment: The dazzling arrangements and the fluffy execution are repeatedly interrupted by narrative spoken word passages and free jazz-like losses of control.
