Systemabsturz – Verdächtig

Systemabsturz (System Crash) from Germany is probably the first privacy and data protection activist electro punk band. Their song Verdächtig (Suspicious) is about how everyone is under surveilance by social media, the tech companies, and the state and every little thing you do or not do or how you behave or not behave could be verdächtig.

The song has been released under a Creative Commons licence. You can download it for free here or on bandcamp.

Alexander Marcus – Ich will verreisen

German artist Alexander Marcus coined the term Electrolore for his music combining electro club music and folklore. His music is basically a pop-art parody of German Schlager music. It’s absurd and intentionally trashy, but sometimes also very clever. This is his new video Ich will verreisen (I want to take a journey) where he sings about being tired of the daily routines and the need to get out of the everyday struggle.
