Inquiries and discussions about new wave artists and what happened to them.

These guys were great from the one album that they did here in the USA.They were a German New Wave synthpop band.They had one big song that was used in the John Cusack movie "Say Anything" called "Keeping The Dream Alive" which was a very nice ballad.Vocally their style in that song had a very Paul McCartneyesque vocal.There are some other songs on that one album that had some other McCartneyesque vocals.And the rest of that album reminded me alot of early A-Ha,especially their follow up song called "Tears Are A Girl's best Friend" which I like even more.If anyone likes alot of german New wave then check out Freiheit's album called "Fantasy" You will really find yourself singing along to alot of the songs from the album.

Their other English releases were excellent too in the vein of "Fantasy". To me, they've always sounded like a less dark Hubert Kah. They are produced by Armand Volker who co-produced the Hubert Kah albums along with Michael Cretu.
