Cool day putting the final touches to the new video for Song of the Dead … A very black and white feel to the day …
We’d like to thank all our fans for hanging in with us this summer. After announcing our UK live dates and festivals for the summer of 2018, we tried to get Susique here from Germany. However, because our she-wolf is American, it wasn’t as easy to get her to the UK to work and live, even though her husband is British. We never thought it would be so complicated! So with Susique stranded in Germany and a very unhappy Musket and band on their own in England, we were forced to cancel all our planned UK dates.
But after six months of waiting we are finally back together in the UK! LäGzz is now based in Sussex & we’re ready to go. We’re starting to rehearse with the band and book gigs for autumn/winter……watch this space for future details …
The song BLEAK from our debut CD was inspired by the space that is so skillfully illustrated in the video of the same name. The song is a tribute to ideals that were once thriving and now stand around us, sunken in their own decay and ruin. Monuments are a great illustration of things that have gone right or have gone wrong. There’s a Germany word for a monument that warns people of bad things that have been: Mahnmal.
Here’s the video for BLEAK and all the glory of a past era. Try to guess where this was shot:

“I was skeptical at first, what with all this guitar. Don’t get me wrong, I love guitar but can you make it work in a synthpop genre? So I stuffed PURE WHITE LIGHT into my cd player and only when I noticed I was dancing around the flat, did I buy into how this debut effort from LäGzz really crosses sultry, vintage sounds with a fresh take on electropop.
“Opening with The Crown, PURE WHITE LIGHT promises an electronic, bass-heavy intrigue, the vocals playing off the guitar. Mr Forrest and Atlantic Avenue are gritty club tracks that’ll have you up and on your feet. Lots of bass there too!
“The mastermind behind the band is guitarist and synth-master Musket. And here with the title track, Pure White Light, the band earns their electropop badge, and that guitar is what gives this band that edge, that intriguing edge. I can’t stop saying intriguing!
“Then the cd moves into haunting, moody, tracks like So Alone and Song of the Dead, highlighting the lyrics and talents of vocalist and self-proclaimed poet, Susique. Again, the guitar accompanies the enchantment. Zero is an epic effort that really brings this endeavor above full-circle.
“Looking forward to seeing how this debut effort finds its way into listeners hearts!”
Read the buzz for newly-released electropop CD PURE WHITE LIGHT:
“This CD is what happens when you take an East-Coast she-wolf and a London metal guitarist and shipwreck them in Germany. LäGzz’s debut is not only stacked synths and heavy beats, ala Eurodisco, its a moody array of German chillwave. Tracks like MR FORREST and ATLANTIC AVE are club style dance sensations and the atmospheric tracks like SO ALONE (watch the video!) zone us to a midtempo of hushed chants and introspective lyrics. My favorite track is ZERO and the title track PURE WHITE LIGHT.”

LäGzz singer Susique tells us about the inspiration behind some of the songs from their debut release PURE WHITE LIGHT.
“Acid Wash: A bad day sitting around lead to this.
“So Alone: Did you ever walk around town on a winter’s evening, nowhere to go, no friends? And you see all those warm living room windows flickering blue light from the TV and you think they are all so happy and warm in there and here you are outside all alone? That’s So Alone.
“My favorite song is ZERO: Zero is what lovers do when they are finally allowed to be together and free to just be!”
