Die Höchste Eisenbahn
What the name means: literally ‘the highest railway’ but it’s also a German saying, comparable to ‘It’s about time.’
Where they come from: Berlin
What it sounds like: Soulful pop with a slice of 80s wave in it.
What it’s all about: Songs about life, love, growing up and every day struggles. The two main singers, Francesco Wilking und Moritz Krämer tell stories everybody can relate to although you often don’t know whether to laugh or to cry. Sometimes even both. It’s got a quite funky and soulful note which is highly rare in combination with the German language.
