Acclaimed German artist Felix Räuber releases ‘Colors’ on November 13th, 2020 via Every Motion Records, accompanied by striking visuals for the track.

Building on one of his latest releases; the re-recording of his worldwide hit ‘Allein Allein’ from his days with Polarkreis 18 – which has garnered more than 3 million Spotify streams since April and the placement of his track ‘Après Minuit (feat. Schlindwein)’ in the Emmy-nominated ABC and Netflix-series ‘How To Get Away With Murder’Felix Räuber is again focusing on sociopolitical topics, combining them with his own style of “Cinematic Pop” – a mix of neoclassical, electronic music and pop – and enthrawling music videos.

Colors’ is the follow-up release of the EP´s title track ‘Autsider’. The track is dealing with the dependency of toxic relationships in relation to domestic violence which have gained a lot of attention in the course of the Corona crisis. In the accompanying video, Räuber is getting beat up symbolically, showing a parable of his own deepest, personal mental lows.

Since his early youth days, Felix Räuber has been obsessed with all forms of making music and the possibility to let all of his feelings flow out. By the age of 13 he founded his first band in his parents´ basement – the indie popstars Polarkeis 18, who later released their No. 1 hit ‘Allein Allein’ in 2008. The song garnered multiple Gold & Platinum awards in Germany and became one of the most successful German-language songs of all time.

After the breakup of the band, Felix Räuber developed his self-titled solo project in 2018, heavily influenced by film, electronic music and pop.

After having released his EPs ‘Wall’ in 2018 and ‘ME’ in 2019, Felix Räuber completes his EP trilogy with the ‘AUTSIDER’ EP in Spring 2021, which he self-produced alongside a select number of established guest musicians.

Following the first single, ‘Autsider,’ more outsiders will be highlighted with the singles, ‘Empty Space‘ and ‘Disconnected,’ including an alcoholic and an immigrant, displaying a variety of topics which lie beyond the centre of our daily observations.
