So as you no doubt remember, the Berlin duo The LaLaVox Box luminously debuted the ditties “The Sea, The Sea” and “Shingle Beach” on this very blog, these being the first and second singles from the sea-inspired, nautical album they’re collaborating on with Berlin’s fabulous singing mermaid Ms. Lorelei Vanora.
Here is their third single, “Onkel Klaus,” the story about a guy who’s very sentimental about the old DDR (communist East Germany), forgetting what he hated about it now that it’s gone and remembering the days when he used to illegally hunt eel. The song idea was thought up by Lorelei’s friend Lucy, who wrote the basic lyrics.
Isn’t it lovely? The beauteous artwork is by LaLaVox.
