"Let's do something fun - and Germanish!". The upcoming EP by Canadian Sam Vance-Law is the setting of his love for Neue Deutsche Welle. With the gray area classic "Eisbär" he delivers the first foretaste of the record.

A loving homage to the Neue Deutsche Welle: The Berlin-based Canadian Sam Vance-Law covers the gray area classic "Eisbär" from 1981 and announces his new EP "NDW" with the pre-release. With four cover songs, the musician bows to this special and very formative phase in German music history and slips into the role of the international NDW ambassador. The EP will be released on March 5th.

Defence committee summons former military watchdog in Vance investigation

  Defence committee summons former military watchdog in Vance investigation The House of Commons defence committee agreed Monday to summon Canada's former military ombudsman to further its investigation into what the Liberal government knew — and did not know — about allegations of inappropriate behaviour by the country's former chief of the defence staff before they became public. The committee took the unusual step after former ombudsman Gary Walbourne declined an earlier, friendlier and less formal invitation to testify on the advice of his lawyer.

“Let's do something fun - and Germanish!”

That Sam Vance-Law took the Neue Deutsche Welle into his heart is no longer a secret. He has played the German-language post-punk hit “Eisbär” by the Swiss band Grauzone at his concerts for a long time. Now it was finally high time for an official release: “There is not much fun in the world right now - and, to be honest, I wanted to do something that I enjoy. And my band. And my fans. Not just those in Germany. So we said to ourselves: Let's do something fun - and Germanish! ”

The“ NDW hits ”developed their own charm for Sam, he says:“ Even then, songs like 'Eisbär' sounded extraordinary because they were have their own language and mood that were extremely rare elsewhere at the time. "

Musical touch at flat-share parties

He came into contact with music completely suddenly in his first years in Germany and was immediately enthusiastic:" When I In my first years in Berlin, after a while, I also had real Berliners in my circle of friends, I went to many private flat-share parties - and these NDW songs were played more often, which everyone could shout along. I loved them - and had never heard of them before. ”

With the upcoming EP, Sam Vance-Law not only wants to draw international attention to the NDW, but also shortens the waiting time for his second album, hopefully this one Year will be published. The musician last released his album HOMOTOPIA in 2018.
