Was it reaching a top ranking in the finals of the Austrian „Eurovision Song Contest“ qualifiers that provided „Klimmstein“ with its enthusiastic fan – base? Or the rather tireless touring with hundreds of gigs around the country or even their hit – single “Paris, Paris” which made number 2 in the Austrian Top 40 charts, selling more than 10,000 copies?
Whatever it might have been, “Klimmstein” stands for their unique mix of Pop, Rock and Reggae elements combined with entertaining multi – lingual lyrics and repeating noticeable cooperations like with Joe Sumner, “Sting´s” son.
One can enjoy the significant party – factor of their music on 3 long play albums accompanied by a live DVD and multiple singles by now.
And because “Klimmstein” never takes itself too serious, they recently sent the song “Porque soy Fregon” to Mexico . A nice try one may say, but extensive airplay and overwhelming reaction from the public motivated them to record another song featuring the popular Mexican pop – singer Brenda Magallanes which can be heard on the latest album “Sancho Vida Loca”.
So rest assured you will hear much more from the Southern Austrian folks of “Klimmstein”. They always will be good for some colorful, cheeky and fresh sounds ”Made in Austria” for the world.
