Alex Fischer (Hamm)
Alex Fischer: feels comfortable in German pop rock. They founded a singer-songwriter project in early 2016 and eventually became the band Alex Fischer. In addition, three of the four guys are named Alexander on the ID card. Of course the fourth member is a passionate Fisherman, after all. You can listen to hard rock sound, but also to soft and melancholic guitar reefs, which are accompanied by soft piano sounds.
For what DOTE swarms is quite clear: For danceable and dreamy guitar music. Or in short: DOTE loves Indie music. You can expect classical, spherical riffs and catchy melodies, combined with synthesizers. Together with the dark voice of Jonah and the bright voice of Luke, this gives the sound of DOTE.
The young rock band from Heilbronn has met in 2014 and has rehearsed since then with goal to conquer the stages. They stand for diversified and refreshing riff rock but also for ballades.
IZE carries the summer to listeners with a mix of pop, radio, R’n’B and German lyrics. Not far from the biggest metal festival of Baden-Württemberg, Dinkelsbühl, they met each other. They spent much time in the rehearsing room and matched up every single one of their talents.
