JANOSCH MOLDAU - GHOST TRACKS - "Haunted under the palms of Lake Lugano"
The minor chords set a melancholy mood, evoking a Sunday somewhere between a railway station and a phone box.
Janosch Moldau’s pop is clearly the perfect match for people with aching hearts and other forms of malaise. Janosch Moldau is the secret hero of this scene, mixing hope, love and longing into an addictive potion and sharing it with these tortured souls.
Within the last ten years the musician has published four studio albums, and has toured throughout Europe and in Russia with numerous stars of the electro-pop scene. His third album, "Lovestar", expanded his committed fan base well beyond the borders of Germany. The music clip with the same name as the album was presented exclusively on the music channel VIVA, introduced with the following apt description: "Melancholy is a key element in Janosch Moldau’s work, wonderfully packaged in addictive sounds à la Depeche Mode, The Cure or Red Flag."
Just to be on the safe side, Janosch Moldau has joined forces with Vienna‘s electro veteran, Gerhard Potuznik (Chicks On Speed, Mediengruppe Telekommander, Electronicat, Bunny Lake, Mäuse and more) – the first time he has welcomed any helpers onto his melancholy boat. All the songs on the current Remix LP were recorded over the winter months in Italy on Lake Lugano, where the musician has regularly withdrawn for some time.
