Biography

Not only is ‘No Guts, No Glory’ the title of her debut album, it is also the maxim of Krause, alter ego of the Dutch Susanne Clermonts. On her debut album she translates this into steamy disco and pumping electro beats. It is a mix of catchy synth pop and hysterical electro punk, with a sound that makes your trouser legs flutter. The album is produced by the guys behind drum & bass trio Noisia, who are responsible for the consistent, heavy sound of ‘No Guts, No Glory’.

Krause’s debut album is intriguing, diverse and energetic. The track ‘Follow Me’ is a relatively small production with close harmony vocals, while the rioting ‘I Want A Pony’ – where Krause screams off 20 years frustration of not getting a pony – contradicts this track completely. Tracks like ‘Soaring Through The Starlight’ and ‘Radio Edit’ are very catchy pop songs, prepare for steel drums in the sunny ‘Rock The Boat’ and single ‘No Guts, No Glory’ reminds of the sound of Royksopp.

Krause is a self made artist. After years of playing in punkrock bands, Clermonts decides to trade the raging guitars for electro. In Michel Houellebecq’s ‘Elementary Particles’ she finds the perfect name for her alter ego. A new species of mankind is created in this novel, who are covered in Krause-particles through which pleasure is experienced. ‘Normal’ people only have these particles on their erogenous zones. ‘An intriguing idea’.
