Theo Vandenhoff is an Exclaim! Top Pick
Everything is better now that Theo Vandenhoff has been chosen as an Exclaim! staff pick... or to put it more eloquently 'Alles Ist Besser'.
That's right, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Neil Young & Crazy Horse, The A's, Aquakultre, The Deslondes and Kali Malone, we're stoked that Theo Vandenhoff's latest single was picked out by Exclaim! writer Sydney Brasil who said —
"If saxophone solos keep popping up in '80s-inspired synthpop, we'll be better for it. "Alles Is Besser" swallows you in Theo Vandenhoff's embellished contradictions, with the lead synth hook shining over the track's darker elements. His striking baritenor vocals surprise, yet make perfect sense within his ode to the history of the European underground. As Vandenhoff toys with singing in German on the choruses, he reminds you not to bottle up your feelings — even if it makes for some great dance floor catharsis."
