Pentatones – The Devil’s Hand

Pentatones – The Devil’s Hand
Pentatones are pop music in a truly new disguise. Over an electronically tinkered mosaic hovers the voice of Delia de France, radiant yet mysterious. Her vocals (known from productions with Douglas Greed or Robag Whrume) are enveloped by pulsating beats, bouncing back and forth between here and an imagined acoustic horizon. In collaboration with visual artists pentatones released impressive and award-winning videos and create impressive audiovisual live performances playing at various media art-festivals, such as Ars Electronica as well as huge music festivals like SonneMondSterne.


The glacial romanticism of their last years debut album “The Devil’s Hand”(2012/Lebensfreude rec.) is still intensely vibrant. Hence, the electronic quartet Pentatones is now presenting “Bonfire”(release 06/28/13), the final single release of their debut feature.

Pentatones are:
Delhia de France – Vocals/Lyrics
Le Schnigg – Beats/Sampling
Hannes Waldschütz – Bass/Synthesizer
Albrecht Ziepert – Keys/Synthesizer

Pentatones have already played various venues as well as music and art festivals mostly in germany but also switzerland, austria, denmark and romania like: ars electronica/linz AT, fusion festival/berlin DE, plai festival/timisoara RO, laborbar/zurich CH, jazzhaus/freiburg DE, 90years of bauhaus/weimar
