Described as “Gothic Future Pop” these guys hail from Germany and I am delighted to have them as “Featured Artists” on AIR, on The Indie Show.
I met Alex Kintner through the show over the social networks, and when Alex sent us through a couple of tracks from their Debut album I was straight into the studio to turn the volume up and blow some dust of the speakers. These guys know how to Rock and bang out some deep guitar sounds. The “Darkwave” synths over the top add a full sound to the songs and Alex does a fantastic job of stamping his own brand passion into the vocals. Reminiscent of 80’s/90’s bands like ‘Clan of Xymox’, ‘Depeche Mode’ and dare I say ‘Killing Joke’, it’s hard to pigeon hole these guys which I like as hopefully someday people will say “That sounds like Model Kaos”.

“Love Is Murderous” is the first track we got our hands and is their first single released back in November 2011. It launched the band into the global gothic radio scene spreading quickly to countries like America, South Africa. Mexico, UK, Russia and Indonesia. This success was quickly followed by their second single release “The More” which rode the same wave of success.
Who knows where the album is going to take them, but a hard working and hard touring band like this, with a smoke filled light show to back them up - I personally will be keeping my twitter and facebook feeds open to see what happens next.
But I’m sure they won’t be far from AIR!
“The More” for me has a more Euro/Dance feel to the track with a faster dance beat and more synths, and a really kicking catch to the choruses which sticks in the head. But then why not hear for yourself, we’re featuring Model Kaos in The Indie Show live stream and you can find out more by listening to The Indie Show Podcasts where we hope to bring you some interviews and further Model Kaos features.
In speaking with Alex I am happy to learn that at the time of writing this article the New Album is currently in the final stages of pressing and will be released shortly - I’ll be bringing you more about that as soon as we get it. To keep up to date follow my Indie Show posts in AIR Social.
The Indie Show and AIR are looking forward to Model Kaos bringing more of their own brand music to our members & listeners and we’re especially looking forward to some exclusive live Video Casts through AIR TV.
So stay tuned to The Indie Show for more from Model Kaos and hopefully we’ll get them on the soon for an interview prior to the album launch.
