GRÜN WASSER is inspired by the juxtaposition of beauty and tragedy in the world. Keely Dowd and Essej Pollock formed GRÜN WASSER in Chicago, USA in 2015. Together, they combine influences to create music that explores expression through the feelings and colors of specific moments. The nearly apocalyptic social conditions throughout the world can be heard in the pounding bass rhythms and dynamic, anguished vocals. GRÜN WASSER stands in solidarity with all people who have been disenfranchised by the negligent powers of society.

“evocative of Liquid Sky mixed with Blade Runner – imagine a physical merging of Pris’ basic pleasure model with Zhora’s kick murder squad lethality if portrayed by Siouxsie Sioux”…”not dissimilar to the otherworldly audio surrealism of The Knife crossed with Laurie Anderson”
“ghostly vocals to cold icy industrial sounds”…“part aggressive, past nihilistic and terribly anguished”
“pseudo-erotic interpretive dance performance set to music that recalled a clubby version of Kraftwerk/Bjork”
"beguiling industrial dance a la the Knife"
"an ode, or an elegy, to disillusionment and betrayal. It makes Chicago, in all its cold, opaque grandeur, look alien and dangerous, but it also takes pride in the city.”
