POP - ROCK - TRIP HOP and sometimes experimental, harmony singing, two guitars, synth, bass, drums and english lyrics. We avoid too much virtuosity, but skilled, we are lovers and driven by melancholic music, idealists and passionate anyway.

PRESS RELEASE - german (pdf)
Pabst: „Full Of Light“ (Street Date: 19th of July 2013)
Second release by Pabst. At first sight „Full Of Light“ is not full of happiness. But it’s profound. The titletrack deals with „letting the things go, that we love“, says Austrian guitar-player Daniel Pabst. One main topic throughout the whole CD is „the trouble we have with farewells“. Yes, the songs on the CD are also about death and love. Pabst: „Sometimes it is not totally clear wether a song deals with love or anything else.“How can we cope with farewells? „Maybe I am a sentimental guy, but to me music is a good way to handle these issues.“ (Pabst) But still: The CD is optimistic, not pessimistic. The titletrack features the line: „I’m going into a room of light“. While the first Pabst-record was clinging to jazz-like, free structures, the new CD is more song-based following the rules of classical songwriting – featuring the musicians Thomas Tannenberger and David Schweighart. All in all „Full Of Light“ is a deep going, sophisticated record, on which the participating musicians had enough space to perform. You can hear synthisizers and a carillon. The songs of „Full Of Light“ do not offer answers, but they take us for a little journey – and they (maybe) leave us behind differently.
