CRITICS

“What a beautiful melody and mesmerizing singing this single has - The New Deine Lakaien ” Where Are You” single which is taken from the “White Lies” Album. Another haunting moody and melancholic experience from the masters of avant garde. The single comes out in two versions and include dancefloor remixes and exclusive new club hit “In the Chains of”. Alexander Veljanov is the master of vocals, he has an extremely unique voice something between Michael Gyra, Andrew Eldrich and Cave, The hypnotic keyboards playing and electronics done by maestro Ernst Horn.” (Jez Porat, Lexiconmagazine, USA)

“The German masters return with a new single off their brilliant current album “White Lies”. “Where you are” is a perfect choice for a single with its very moody atmosphere and catchy chourus. The song appears here as a single edit as well as moving live acoustic version. As usual on singles, Deine Lakaien experiment a bit more and offer us here an upbeat “In The Chains Of” featuring more distorted keyboards, weirder bleeps and sound arrangements and surprising female backing vocals. A very exellent refreshing B-side reminding us that Ernst Horn also enjoys innovating and experimenting… As if that was not enough with luxury packing, we still get 2 more songs including another very good “Rain Dance” I might call a more typical Lakaien arrangement and a new version of my album’s favourite song “Prayer”. Essential for all fans! TSF9” (Side-Line, Belgium)

“Nouvel orgasme à l’écoute des deux versions de ce maxi splendide des rois de la darkwave allemande. Teré de White Lies, le fameux “Where you are” et sa mélodie splendide au piano portée par la voix sensationnelle d’Alexander Veljanov et les claviers savant d’Ernst Horn que vous aviez pu savourer sur le sampler de D-Side 8 l’an passé, vient de sortir sur deux maxis accompagné d’un inédit redoutablement beau et rythmé intitulé “In the Chains of”. Le premier maxi fait la part belle aux inédits en bonus (une nouvelle version de “Prayer” et un “Rain dance” inoubiable) et au live avec une version acoustique (piano et chant) de “Where you are” enregistrée dans une salle berlinoise électrisée. La seconde édition du maxi se concentre, toujours en bonus, sur des remixes très réussis de “Where you are”, tous bien plus rythmés que l’original (la club version est déjà pas mal, mais le “Memphis Remix” est carrément à se mettre à genoux), avec une mention particulière pour celui de VNV Nation, incroyablement martial et épique. C’est vraiment du bonheur en tranches alors on vous conseille d’acheter les deux.” (Guillaume Michel. D-Side, France)
