- The German superstar's lean new track might leave fans wanting more.
- Though Paul Kalkbrenner's biggest hit, the iconic "Sky And Sand" famously featured in Berlin Calling had vocals, he doesn't use them often. His tunes, heavy on melody and hovering between house and techno, are usually touching without lyrics, finding rich moods that move from euphoria to melancholy. "No Goodbye," his first release of 2019, hinges around a rhythmic sung Kalkbrenner pulled from an unnamed demo tape he received, pairing rudimentary romantic lyrics (Sample: "I'm lost in your body / Just for tonight / There's no goodbye) with a rolling house groove. Without his trademark swirling layers of melody or shifts in energy, the lean instrumental is among Kalkbrenner's simpler beats, so it might leave some fans wanting more.
