In the year 2007 Sven Friedrich, the singer of Zeraphine and the
legendary Dreadful Shadows, brought his solo project SOLAR FAKE into being.
Here the charismatic frontman, who is mentioned in several lexica and
reference books as the outrider for the combination of rock and
electronics in dark music, can live his penchant for electronic music
perfectly. SOLAR FAKE is a pure electro- project and there are
synthesized sounds only, except for his uncomparable voice.
The Music Pulsating sequencers, driving beats and sometimes wild and aggressive vocals meet intensive melodies and melancholic moments. But Sven doesn't commits himself to a certain style.
"I like too many styles to choose only one of them. In my opinion an
album is much more diversified and exciting if you combine different
elements and styles", he said.
It's due to this position that his band Zeraphine is so successful. The
songs break in on you, throw you very different moods, but you always
keep the feeling to listen to one single album. There's the
unmistakable hand of Sven Friedrich in all compositions and lyrics. But
it's really something new.
A solo project - why?
"The idea of an electro project grew in me for a long time. But I
lacked the time and maybe courage to do it. Last year I simply started
to work on this project. After years in rockbands (which I really love
and don't want to miss) I wanted to create something of my own,
something uncompromising. It's good for me to be unaccountable except for myself. And I love creating sounds an electronic music anyway, so it seems to be the consequential step in my musicians life."
