After his debut album “Das Paradies”, Tristan Brusch reveals to the world with “Die Moritat vom Schweighöfer” not only the first single, of what may come, and a new hairstyle. In addition, the title of the song makes it clear that his work falls into the course for “advanced listening to German-language music”. His songs only gradually develop their accessibility.

Or the instrumental substructure that oscillates like a wreckingball from flawless 80s pop to sometimes fragile piano melodies. The greatest emotions develop in the moments when hard words meet the fragility of being.

"Schweighöfer stop pretending to me,

and they swear they would have given it back to me long ago. "
