Grauzone - “Eisbär”

Alternately floating in the detached synth-pop motorik cold and embroiled in nervy agit-industrial anxiety, Swiss new wave outfit Grauzone occupied but a brief moment, playing ten gigs, releasing a few singles and an LP; nevertheless, they left a distinct impression upon the neue deutsche welle movement, due in no small part to their 1981 debut single “Eisbär” (means “polar bear”). This track and every other have been recently remastered and compiled on 1980-1982.
