Das Funus

bandcamp, facebook

We recognize the analog tradition of the 80th. Based on our philosophy, we use the analog synthesizers and effects, samplers. We use them not only for making music but also for live performances, to evoke the atmosphere of the 80s.

In addition to music, the show dark image is also important to us.
