    Berlin-based band ‘Them There,’ featuring hit songwriters Craig Walker and Phoebe Kildeer, just released their new single! Dina Elsayed

 

Update: The new single by Them There, featuring Berliners Craig Walker and Phoebe Killdeer, is out NOW! Check out the new video to accompany the release below and revisit our interview with the pair.

 

Craig Walker, frontman of indie/electronica band Archive, and former Nouvelle Vague singer Phoebe Killdeer have been living in Berlin for a decade, and say the city has been great to them musically – which seems almost an understatement given the past few years they’ve had.

The two co-wrote the 2016 hit “Fade Out Lines,” which was remixed by French DJ The Avener and became a massive hit that lingered at number one on the German charts for 52 weeks, with 100 million listens on Spotify and 42 million hits on YouTube.

Now the duo have renamed themselves “Them There” and are set to release a new album, “Love is an Elevator,” in the coming weeks. The album features a dizzying range of accomplished artists, with Tyler Pope (LCD Soundsystem) on bass, Knox Chandler (Siouxsie and the Banshees, R.E.M., Cyndi Lauper) on guitar, Tim Gane (Stereolab) on keys, Raphaël Seguinier (Phoebe Killdeer and the Short Straws, Shannon Wright, Rufus Wainwright) on drums. It’s produced by Victor Van Vugt (Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, P.J. Harvey, Beth Orton).

They’ve also just finished shooting the music video for their single BLAZE, slated for release in March 2018. With its warm pop feel and melancholic yet upbeat take on love, Walker and Killdeer may just have another hit on their hands.
