La Boum Fatale – AAA


Hamburg-based La Boum Fatale built up fragile worlds somewhere between melancholy and euphoria. The two of them combine Electronica, House, Garage and Dubstep to sophisticated arrangements, accompanied by vocals and field recordings. Their sounds create a deep and dense atmosphere.
