SAURUS, Locas in Love’s second album, was released ten years ago and turned the group into “the country’s best unknown band” over night. Recording in a basement and mixed by Peter Katis, who had previously worked with The National, War on Drugs and Interpol, Locas in Love finally had found an approach to sound and songwriting that was and remains very much their own. Thus, we had German indie rock at its very best.
For this anniversary, Berlin’s Staatsakt label is releasing a vinyl-reissue of the long out-of-print record. Meanwhile, Locas in Love are on tour and playing Saurus in full. Of course, it might get a little nostalgic – but that’s just the way things go when you look back and realise that things that happened ten years ago actually happend ten years ago. But more likely, it will turn out to be as exciting, timeless and unique as it was a decade ago.
