Element Of Crime

Für unsere deutschen Freunde – hier geht’s zu den Videos auf Vimeo!

When a band sells a sweater with “Element of Crime University established 1985” on it, being a long-term fan feels like belonging to a venerable fraternity. However, after 30 years of existence Element of Crime’s music still has a strong meaning to people as young as in their mid-twenties. At least the ones, who are fond of melancholy and romance, because that’s what most songs are about. And for those who grew up with the music, Sven Regener writes the best (German) love songs anyway. So even though the Berlin-based band has been around for a while, they never seem to grow uninspired or bored. And despite the continued success mastermind Sven Regener turns out the least bit pretentious. He’s down-to-earth, jaunty and always up for a pithy remark. After Element of Crime’s inspired Sunday morning session in a hotel suite in-between two sold-out Vienna shows, Sven Regener jokes: “Are you sure, you have inserted a film?”
