German Pop - Wir sind Helden

They're said to have rung in German-language pop of the 21st century. Youthful fans and newspaper critics alike love them. With four albums under their belt, each concert is a surprise.


German Pop - Florian Ostertag

Singer Florian Ostertag writes songs that go straight to the heart. Melancholy and a whole lot of emotion are trademarks of his lyrics, and his love for detail can be heard in every note of his music.

German Pop - Lokomotor

The five musicians from Bavaria make their fans go wild with pretty melodies and their own distinct sound. And the band has a message.

DW welcomes the Alin Coen Band back to the podcast series, this time for a live performance from the c/o pop festival, where the full force of lead singer Alin Coen's lyrics was on display.

German Pop - Philipp Poisel

With his mop of messy hair and shy, unassuming manner, Philipp Poisel seems like any other boy next door with a guitar. But his unusual voice and knack for songwriting have sent him to the top of the German charts.

German Pop - Max Prosa

Max Prosa is a story-teller and an ardent poet, and he's convinced that a very special energy is created when playing the guitar - a spark which is infectious.

German Pop - Hans Unstern

Somewhere between poet and singer, Hans Unstern's orchestral indie rock sound is like being along for a mixed-up roadtrip. And the lyrics could almost be the stuff of a seminar on German literature.

German Pop - Alin Coen Band

The Alin Coen Band makes music that's laid-back with a heavy dose of singer-songwriter introspection. Find out just why they're picking up fans all over the place in this edition of Clip.

German Pop - Ja, Panik

German Pop - 1000 Robota

1000 Robota, but nope, they're not machines. They're flesh and blood, although not kin to electro-pioneers Kraftwerk. 1000 Robota play punk, post-punk, hardcore - with a cool, original sound and a 'let 'er rip' energy.

German Pop - The Bonny Situation

The members of The Bonny Situation lifted their band name from Quentin Tarantino's cult film "Pulp Fiction." The five musicians from Duisburg try to mix match styles - everything from electronic to melancholy rock.

German Pop - Klee

German Pop - Shantel

Stefan Hantel has many professions: DJ, musician, producer, label manager and impresario. But the man from the German state of Hesse is best known for his stage name 'Shantel' - the uncrowned king of Balkan-Pop.

German Pop - Baby Benzin

Guitar, bass, percussion, vocals. That's how simple and straightforward rock music can be. Meet the young Hamburg band Baby Benzin, which translates to Baby Gasoline, or Baby Petrol.
