Datapop, a Swedish electro pop duo consisting of Anders Wilhelm and Mikael Larsson and bringing Kraftwerk like material, is back 4 years after their previous “Pop” album with their second album “Sterne” (Stars). In 2017 Datapop released their debut album “Pop” which became one of the most successful releases of Razgrom.

Musically “Sterne” continues and develops the ideas of the machine-vocoder-robo-electro sounds of its predecessor. Lyrically the new album is entirely dedicated to outer space and to all the difficulties of space travels. All tracks are sung in English, German and Swedish and next to 11 original tracks we also find remixes by Anymachine and fellow Plonk label-member Maschine Brennt.

Check out “Space Operators”.

Check out “Asteroid”.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
