My thoughts… Luxuslärm is highly recommended for fans of Silbermond. Both female-fronted bands play an infectious mix of rock, pop/rock and alternative rock. The only difference is that Luxuslärm‘s Janine Meyer is blonde and Silbermond‘s Stefanie Kloß is brunette! Well, that’s not the only difference but if you love one, you will undoubtedly love the other! Sadly, Luxuslärm‘s official videos are no longer available in the U.S.! They were in 2013 when I first posted about this band! In addition, Luxuslärm‘s 4th album Alles was du willst is not available for download in the U.S.! And, I have to assume that the band’s upcoming 5th album Fallen und Fliegen will not be available either! Bastards!
