Sea of Sin – The Band
SEA OF SIN are a German Synthpop band that was originally founded in the 90s and reached considerable success in international Synthpop scene through their debut album “Watch Out!” and the “Illuminate EP” that had been produced by Heiko Maile, member of German Synthpop pioneers CAMOUFLAGE.
After a long break SEA OF SIN caused a stir in 2018 with their long awaited comeback album FUTURE PULSE with various top 10 positions in the German Alternative Charts (DAC) and German Electronic Web Charts (GEWC). While this comeback album mostly consisted of re‐edits of older songs, SEA OF SIN 2019 started with completely new songs and a fantastic compilation of their best remixes in 2018 / 2019. And the wait was worth it.
The new album UNBROKEN shows the two founding members Frank Zwicker (vocals & words) and Klaus Schill (synths, guitars & production) musically more mature than ever. The songs on the new album have the classic SEA OF SIN ingredients: high‐quality electronic pop music with a penchant for melancholy and strong, catchy melodies that get stuck in the head and heart. Stylistically the spectrum ranges from mid‐tempo numbers with influences from classic 90s electropop to energetic songs that contain elements from indie bands such as New Order or The Editors. The distinctive and unmistakable voice of Frank and the sophisticated production handwriting of Klaus always ensure the special SEA OF SIN touch.
The new album UNBROKEN was released on May 3rd, 2019 and is distributed worldwide as a Digipac including a 16‐page booklet by 7us music, the music label of former PR Promoter of Depeche Mode, Hans Derer (Intercord Tonträger GmbH as partner of Mute Record). The album is also available on all major digital platforms such as Spotify, iTunes, Amazon, etc.. There are a total of 14 tracks on the album ‐ 13 songs and an instrumental reprise.
In week 18 in 2019 UNBROKEN entered the German Alternative Charts (DAC) album top 10 as the highest new entry at number 3 and was able to stay there for a total of eight weeks ‐ as highest position the album could even climb up to number 2, ahead of internationally successful acts such as Chemical Brothers, Iggy Pop, Gorillaz or Schiller.
UNBROKEN also scored in the German Electronic Web Charts (GEWC) and reached number 3 for several weeks as highest ranking. The media response to UNBROKEN has been absolutely overwhelming and very positive. On November 29th, 2019 SEA OF SIN released THE REMIXES, an ingenious compilation of their best remixes from 2018/2019 with a total of 15 tracks and peppered with the fabulous work of internationally successful remixers such as Mesh, Paralyzed, Blume, The New Divison , Uncreated, Oren Amram, Rotoskop and Mindbeat. THE REMIXES also includes a completely new song, the previously unreleased “Only The Memory Remains”.
And the success story continues: THE REMIXES immediately reached number 3 in the German Electronic Web Charts (GEWC) and has been successfully there for several weeks.
In order to continue the successful path of SEA OF SIN and to use the momentum the song YOU was digitally released on June 14 in 2019 as 2nd single: YOU is a homage to all the beloved ones who make our lifes so special and help us to get through! YOU contains the classic SEA OF SIN ingredients with a catchy hookline and strong melodies which makes it stick to listeners hearts and in their heads – the perfect mixture to be played on Radio in contemporary Rock/Pop/Indie‐Shows!
The Single (Radio Edit) of YOU is accompanied by seven Remixes of international successful acts such as The New Division from the US, Blume from Italy and Uncreated from Sweden ‐ their Remixes are rather aimed to the Indie Dancefloors and the Electro scene. The music video of YOU has been streamed on YouTube almost 45.000 times so far and has received worldwide attention. On Austrian Music TV Station “GoTV” YOU even made it into the hot rotation for several weeks.
The aim is to make the music of SEA OF SIN accessible to a broader audience, as the new songs have significantly more pop appeal and much higher hit potential beyond the underground scene.

Interview: SEA OF SIN: „Wir alle sind schon öfter hingefallen. Das Wichtigste ist, wieder aufzustehen.“
Sea Of Sin sind eine deutsche Synthpop-Band, die 2018 mit ihrem lange erwarteten Comeback-Album Future Pulse aufhorchen ließ. Im Interview mit Monkeypress redeten Frank und Klaus u.a. über musikalische Einflüsse, Camouflage und die heutige Musikwelt.
“Fast 20 Jahre war es still um das Duo aus Hamburg, aber nun gibt es das große Comeback. Sea of Sin haben mit Unbroken ein Werk mit 14 Synth-Pop Perlen herausgebracht, welches Seinesgleichen sucht.”
Ein neues Album, das auf Anhieb in die Spitzengruppe der Deutschen Alternative Charts (DAC) einsteigt – diese Erfolgsgeschichte hätten sich die beiden Musiker selbst nicht träumen lassen. Denn lange Zeit sah es so aus, als ob ihr Bandprojekt für immer auf Eis gelegt bleibt.
“Mich beeindruckt die absolute Leichtigkeit, wie SEA OF SIN auf „UNBROKEN“ ein musikalisches Schätzchen nach dem anderen abspulen. Das Album ist Balsam für die Seele, wenn nach Sonnenschein Regen einsetzt, alles grau und trüb erscheint und man beim Hören bald auf Woche 7 schwebt.”
“Sea of Sin haben ein wirklich tolles Album vorgelegt, das jedem Liebhaber melancholischer Elektrosongs gefallen wird. Die Vorab-Single „Contamination“ hat schon Großes erahnen lassen, aber Frank (Lyrics + Vocals) und Klaus (Synths, Guitar + Producing) schaffen es tatsächlich, dieses Niveau auf Albumlänge zu halten.”
