Nichts ist neu


Nothing is new and easy least of all. The title of the fouth album title couldn’t sound more fatalistic.
And that’s the truth, partly. You cannot stop, even things won’t change, alone or with your band. And then you write 12 songs you wanna present to the World. Author and musician Dirk Bernemann about Love A: „Love A is like one of these scenes in a film noir when someone is screaming like from nowhere and you just expected him to lie down and go on smoking. Then there’s an explosion and someone keeps on screaming. Main point, everybody’s screaming! But these screams are fueled by a feeling of being precisely pissed, that won’t change into conformity. Lyrics that no high achiever would be happy with – music like crooked architecture, that you are forced to look at.“ Btw, the songs „Kanten“ and „Weder noch“, out so far only on a very limited single, are both on the album due to demand of their fans. Nothing is new. Exactly!

Gut und dir

Keele - Gut und dir

Keele is Rookie’s first band from Hamburg, and the first one we signed without recommandations by friends or the Rookie family. They just satisfied with their application and the following showscase. Keele sound hanseatic without just copying the „Hamburger Schule“ style, they write manifold songs without losing their profile, ask important questions without dictating answers and wrap the whole in an album that does not sound like a debut at all. Keele were musically affected in the years of 2000 by the big wave of US hardcore, punk and emo bands like Thrice, Alexisonfire, Ignite or Thursday, but in the last years they also developed a soft spot for German singing hardcore/punk bands à la Escapado and Muff Potter and indies like Tomte and Herrenmagazin.

Heartbreaks And Milkshakes

SR H&M front_web

They must have been listening to a whole lot of METHADONES, LILLINGTONS and QUEERS while driving down those west-coast highways during the last couple of years. Thus it comes as no big surprise that all those tours in the warm California pop-punk-sun made their way into the sound of the band’s new material.
In contrast to their last album „Wild at Heart“, which included mostly upright bass and a far more billy-oriented sound, the band uses Rickenbacker electric bass and guitar on their third studio album „Heartbreaks & Milkshakes“, making it way punker and in-your-face. Even though in terms of style the band still sticks to their guns of slicked-back-Ness a lá Mike-1994 and vegan leatherjackets, their old-school Vans are now both feet on skate decks. The 12 album tracks mostly clock-in way under 3 minutes, bursting with juvenile energy and catchy-ness. All in all the new record sounds very 90s and a lot like summer and kinda makes you wanna call up your friends to go skate and eat burritos, drink Tecate and maybe get tattooed afterwards.
