Das Beat Shares “Ariadne”

Today Das Beat, made up of German actress & vocalist Eddie Rabenberger and Agor of Blue Hawaii, are sharing a new song and video, “Ariadne.” The melancholic, minimal wave-esque ballad is the third single from the duo’s debut EP Identität, due June 4th via Arbutus Records. The new song follows Das Beats previously-released singles, the hypnotic and percussive, eponymously-titled “Identität,” and “Bubble.”

Das Beat share about the concept behind “Ariadne”, “This song tells the story of Ariadne from Naxos, how she helped fight the minotaurs but then gets left behind by Theseus. However, in my version it doesn’t bring her down. Instead, she fights her own demons and becomes stronger. It is an ode not just to Ariadne but to all the strong women out there. The song has a double meaning about relationships as well. Break-ups can make you stronger – being left behind doesn’t mean you need to stay behind. It is the cycle of sadness, intimacy and strength.”
