Fenk co-created The/Das in 2012 following successful years of touring and releasing albums as part of the band Bodi Bill. Synth wizard Thomalla, meanwhile, was putting out music through respected underground platforms like Running Back and Permanent Vacation. They began to play together whilst The/Das was still a four-man band, gaining a loyal following through high-profile shows across Europe, Mexico, Russia and the USA, not to mention a Boiler Room appearance, mainstream radio play, EPs, remixes and an exceptional debut album Freezer (2014).
Their emotionally rich, melodic compositions have since found a fitting home on Life And Death, whose sound is also somewhere between dark Pop and House, between the dancefloor and the living room. When their mesmerising, second album Exit Strategies came out in 2017, the ongoing evolution will be complete.
