Kommando Elefant’s music lies between electro and guitar, between humour and tragedy. The band’s long-awaited 4th album “Lass uns Realität” came out in November 2014 and saw them dive into a more modern, dance-fuelled sound. Their first single from the album “Ich find dich selfsame” with its just as strange video proved to be a welcome return to the scene for the Elefants.
Substance is Meaningless caught up with the Alfred and Luis from the band for a bit of pre-Christmas chitter-chatter to discuss the important things in this season of goodwill, like being Leonardo diCaprio and starting a colony on Mars.
