• Switzerland
  • Helvetic new wave with glitter

If the world were a club, Crimer would be the king. A dazzling figure with a spectacular stage presence and devastating hip sways, Crimer has established himself as the patron saint of Swiss synth pop. Nourishing an all-consuming passion for the 80s, including dance sounds and even haircuts, the Zuricher has brought back into fashion the best of the new wave aesthetics of this lost decade. With a touch of genius, he goes so far as to pinch from Dave Gahan a mystically deep voice that was reckoned to be unequaled. Lovers of Depeche Mode and Bronski Beat, this is for you.
