The Düsseldorf duo BAR, consisting of Stabil Elite musician Lucas Croon and Christina Irrgang, debuts with a musical hybrid between New Wave, Balearic, Shoegaze, Dream Pop and Noir Songwriting.

"Welcome to BAR" is recorded, produced and emotionally arranged on various synthesizers, the drums, with film soundtrack samples, vocal collages and instruments such as the pocket piano, which Croon and Irrgang became aware of in Los Angeles through their acquaintance with Diva Dompé, the daughter of Bauhaus drummer Kevin Haskins.

Passion can be felt in everything they say, sing and play. Passion for love, for nights in a neon glow, for dark pulsating bass lines, black and white romance, driving synth beats and the affectionately playful "À Rebours" – aestheticism with no objection to the natural.

Track Name: White Noise
man out of space
walking through distances of grace

rattle, clunk, and clatter
clang, and clack, and chatter
whistle, swoosh, wind
Track Name: Adios
Waves, overtaking me
Shimmering surface, dissolving

Contour of the sea, electric
Enthusiasm's crest
No rest - it's love

Memories in frames of glass
Lucent and shiny
You read my mind behind it

Just this thought, one and two
It's love
It's love
I trust in you
