"You follow in my honour"

Polarkreis 18 are a German electro 5-piece that, in some ways, reminds me of a poppy version of Muse. Like that band, their music is dramatic, huge and defined by atmospherics and a unique male voice. They had a sizable European hit with the anthematic Allein Allein (coupled with a staggering video--viewed over 7 million times!) and The Colour Of Snow is their newest single and the title of their album. It's a very catchy song with some puzzling lyrics and a driving electro beat. It also displays something about this band that I really like. Oftentimes, groups with an immense, icy sound like Polarkreis 18 give into their desire to experiment and end up creating some interesting sounds but not a cohesive, successful pop single. The Colour Of Snow manages to straddle the line perfectly. It's definitely otherworldy, but sounds great on the radio too.
