Grauzone's Eisbaer and the New Wave of 80s Synth Pop

Synth pop became popular during the 1970s and later on, evolved into other forms like electropop, house music, and EDM. With its ambient beats and somewhat futuristic style, it gives one a chill vibe that kind of makes you want to dance.

One of the bands that focused their music on synth pop was Grauzone but they only lasted two years before they disbanded. In the short span that the they were together, they produced a popular synth pop classic called Eisbaer.

Grauzone are most famous for their amazing 1981 song “Eisbaer” (“Polar Bear”) which is an all time classic example of an early 80s new wave synthpop dancefloor magnet. “Eisbaer” made it to #12 in the German pop charts and #6 in Austria’s.
It’s one of those songs that you fall in love with before it’s halfway over. It’s something every working DJ needs in their repertoire. It is, I promise you, cannot fail dancefloor fodder.
