Die Zärtlichkeit is a German jangle pop band from Colgone. Die Zärtlichkeit are Andreas Fischer (vocals, lyrics) and Tobias Emmerich (music, lyrics). After the two met on Facebook in mid-2019, the first songs were written and recorded in their home studio shortly afterwards.
Based on the indie sound aesthetics of the 80s by bands like The Smiths, Orange Juice, Cleaners from Venus and influenced by lyrics of German bands like Tocotronic, Die Sterne and Blumfeld, a handful of songs were crafted within a short time, of which five finally made it onto the first self-published EP "Die Zärtlichkeit" (03/27/2020). The EP unexpectedly found national and international appeal in indie pop circles:
“It’s truly an impressive EP that will be on my playlist for a while yet.”
Records I Like (Blog, UK)
“Some very good jangle pop coming from Cologne in Germany.”
Cloud Berry Records (Label Blog, US)
After the release of the first EP, the German indie label Kleine Untergrund Schallplatten around Ronny Pinkau also became aware of Die Zärtlichkeit and both parties agreed upon a collaboration in 2021.
Since the year marked by the pandemic did not want to allow rehearsals, let alone concerts, the band seamlessly continued by writing and recording new songs. Four of the songs created in summer 2020 are now released on the second EP "Die Zärtlichkeit II" (11/27/2020). The band remains true to itself on the new EP: Im Zwiespalt und mit den Gedanken entzweit, zwischen Erlösung und Unvollkommenheit. Musically accompanied by 80s jangle pop sounds.
“Die Zärtlichkeit II” is published digitally and as a limited edition cassette tape. The lead single "So einfach war es nie" will be released one week in advance including a music video (11/20/2020).
