Biography

The female duo RHYTHM KING AND HER FRIENDS (Linda Wölfel and Pauline
Boudry) live and work in Berlin. They are known for their very personal style,
mixing pop melodies with sampled rhythms, and singing in a variety of
languages such as French, English and Bulgarian. Guitar, bass, synthesizers,
samplers, drum computers, laptop and recently drums are all used to give a
musical voice to their urban commentary on subculture, life, love and work.

They released their first album I AM DISCO on Kitty-Yo in 2004, as well as a
couple of EPs and remix records. They‘ve toured throughout Europe, including
several tours in England, Scandinavia, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and
Greece.

With their latest album THE FRONT OF LUXURY, RKAHF go for a noticeably
more rock and song-inspired direction that on their previous offering; I AM
DISCO. Their music has evolved into a harmonious mixture of electronica and
guitars; your attention will be drawn to the unique vocal style which on some
songs is reminiscent of the cold style of female new-wave bands like KLEENEX
and on others of the harmonious pop melodies of THE B-52’s.
Protest lyrics and relaxing melodies sit comfortably next to one another and are
showcased with the critical context of the songs; sex and gender, work and
exploitation, sexism and capitalism.

Comparisons to bands they have toured with such as the SLITS, ROBOTS IN
