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."

Theo Vandenhoff's Blistering New Single 'Alles Ist Besser'
Building on the momentum from his debut EP, Heartache Is An Empty Room, Theo Vandenhoff returns with the blistering new single, 'Alles Ist Besser'!
It's a frenetic and jaunty pop song that pays tribute to the early 80’s German EBM scene. Musically, Vandenhoff continues where he left off - Alles Ist Besser has a pure post-punk drive with huge drum machines and pulsating synth hooks providing the backdrop for squealing guitars and brass solos.
The track was recorded at Dining Room Studio (Toronto, Canada), produced by Jay Merrow and Theo Vandenhoff and mastered by Tom Nixon. The single art comes from Nick Tiringer.
Speaking ahead of the release, Vandenhoff explained -
"Alles Ist Besser is a song about how it is always better to express your negative emotions rather than suppressing them, written from the point of view of someone who has reached their boiling point from hiding their true feelings."
It's a struggle that any people pleaser knows all too well, and with this new release, Theo Vandenhoff surely aims to please! The music video for Alles Ist Besser will premiere on June 28th via Psychedelic Baby Magazine, so keep those eyes peeled!
This release was made possible thanks to the support of FACTOR Canada.
