If there’s one thing that Dollkraut can’t stand, it’s predictability. For the past decade, bandleader Pascal Pinkert has passionately pursued musical unpredictability.
As a result, the three-piece band has earned a reputation for delivering fuzzy, lo-fi and analogue-rich live performances that giddily sidestep conventions and proudly nestle in the cracks between genres.
From muscular electronic disco, Morricone-inspired cinematic soundscapes and dub-flecked krautrock workouts, to electro-fired post-punk and wave, ghostly pop and freaky synthesizer explorations, Pinkert’s music surprises and thrills at every turn. Given this gleefully rough-round-the-edges eclecticism, the recent revelation that he is also the man behind Knekelhuis’s celebrated minimal wave project, De Ambassade, cannot have come as a shock.
This unpredictability and fearlessly open-minded approach is naturally also one of the standout features of Dollkraut live performances. Performed by Pinkert alongside band-mates Rens Ottink (drums) and Timothy Francis (bass) using a range of non-conventional analogue instruments and unusual, vintage synthesizers, Dollkraut live shows combine a wall of sound and visuals with the same experimental, lo-fi approach that marks out Pinkert’s recorded output. Think members of Portishead, ESG and Joy Division jamming with Liquid Liquid and Neu!, and you’re close to the Dollkraut live sound.
