Biography

ZWEITFRAU MEETS MISS DRESS

„If I want something to taste good, I’ve got to do it myself. I know what satisfies my taste buds.” Ice cream and cotton candy. Blood, sweat, and tears. Now, how does that match? Naturally of course. At least when it comes to ZWEITFRAU MEETS MISS DRESS. In this full loaded package you can definitely taste the sugar as well as the heart’s blood. ZWEITFRAU MEETS MISS DRESS has developed into a creative team by now: the band, 912 Studios, Superplus+ and their own label Strange Cat Records. No sign of any casting couches or contests. Just one big family. Always noncompetitive. It’s always been about the music from scratch. To them “RÜCKENDECKUNG” (“REAR COVER”) means: You can focus on the future. Be reassured – I’ve got your back. “Music is this family’s offspring – we watched it grow. And somehow more and more people seem to be watching.”

Edgy lyrics, multifarious guitars, luscious beats and fresh sounds. All self-made. Just like a garden. You taste, feel and hear the love, devotion and hard work. Anyone who has ever seen ZWEITFRAU MEETS MISS DRESS perform live, knows how diversified this band really is – they fly but still keep both feet on the ground. Intensive – in every way, since the lifeblood of Rock Music is the sweat on stage. ZWEITFRAU MEETS MISS DRESS says:“Through our music we share a part of our souls with the world surrounding us. We want to touch and be touched.”
Independent, tantalizing, experienced, capable of transformation and strong. ZWEITFRAU MEETS MISS DRESS was born in 2004, with Diana Lueger singing and sometimes playing the drums, Lex on the bass and Martin on the guitar. This trio, which is at the same time the personnel core of the new band, has known one another since their school days in 1993 – matured friendship is what this team is built on. In combination with keyboarder Piotr and Markus on the drums, they always produce just the right amount of goosebumps and ecstasy also on stage.

German Rolling Stone wrote: “… singers to pertinently change the Silbermond-genre: ZWEITFRAU MEETS MISS DRESS. The singles: “Alles dreht sich” (“Everything turns”) and “Intensiv” (“Intense”) are almost Coldplay-like tearjerkers for auditoriums but they can also go hard. So all schmaltzy ladies better watch out!” Unquote.

Front lady Diana has been well-known in the music industry for some time now. She played funky beats as a drummer for Richard Dorfmeister and Rodney Hunter, just to mention a few. After having spent one year in L.A. and having done some exciting collaborations with namable producers such as Richard Stites (Outkast, Bubba Sparxx, Michael Jackson) and John Dixson (Lenny Kravitz), it was about time to implement all the gained experience in music using her own mother tongue.

So when ZWEITFRAU MEETS MISS DRESS strikes a balance, the result is nothing to sneeze at: 2007 and 08 they played over 100 gigs in Austria, Germany and Switzerland including interludes for P!nk, Silbermond, and Revolverheld and a performance at the grand opening of the Vienna Festival Weeks, where the band showed us what they’ve got live. They were also nominated for the “Austrian Grammy” which is called “Amadeus Award 2007 and 2008”.

Their first single record “Alles dreht sich” (“Everything turns”) was released by Warner Music Germany and made it’s way into the top 30 of the German airplay charts. The single record “Intensiv” (“Intense”) – a modern, emotional, intensive pop/rock-ballad – cruised the Austrian Top 20. The debut album “Rückendeckung” (Rear Cover”) went straight up to #32 in the Austrian Album Charts.

With rotation on Antenne Bayern, Jump, Sputnik, Radio Fritz, NDR 2, Bremen 4 and other radio stations – also in Austria, where OE3 massively promotes the band as one of the “New Austrians”, listeners have highly responded to additional powerplay on KroneHit, 88.6, Welle 1, Radio Max and Antenne.

Lyrics

Big girls & roulette

Written By: Diana Lueger, Moritz Gaber


Big girls and roulette

Tonight I feel a little wasted
Weeks ago I faced the morningsun
Every night in the same club looking for luck
I just can't stop
What's the world like nowadays
I feel it spitting in my face
Every woman I meet
Is thinkin i just wanna chea – chea- cheat

baby it's your inner soul
that I chose to be my goul
let's hed to the next casino
and do it on the pianino

As a girl I take other girls to bed
It's all about chicque, women, big girls and roulette
As a girl I take other girls to bed
It's all about chicque, women, big girls and roulette

Spoiled by ads and fashion
we became the generation plastic surgery
„oh, I can't let myself go“
hey babe I love you to the bone

I'm falling right off the stage 
directly in your embrace
I'm doing everything for you
I'm not only into your face

baby it's your inner soul
that I chose to be my goul
let's hed to the next casino
and do it on the pianino

As a girl I take other girls to bed
It's all about chicque, women, big girls and roulette
As a girl I take other girls to bed
It's all about chicque, women, big girls and roulette

We are girls who take other girls to bed
It's all about chicque, women, big girls and roulette
We are girls who take other girls to bed
It's all about chicque, women, big girls and roulette

What about you, boys
We are boys and take bigger girls to bed
it's all about chicque, women, big women and roulette

Intense

Written By: Stefan Holoubek, Diana Lueger, Paul Steinbauer

Intense

You walked right in I felt the same
Now I don´t even remember your name
Could it be that everything
Is just a memory within

It´s been much longer than I thought
You changed your plans - we didn´t even talk
Like on a cold day in the rain
The two of us - pictures in a frame

You returned – and caught my eye
Nothing to forgive – no reason why
There´s so much light when we collide
And now you´re back – and by my side

AHAHAH this feeling is just so intense –AHAH -You close me in- it´s so intense – AHAH - this feeling is just so intense

You wanna fly – it´s not absurd
I feel your dreams in every word
Take my hand when you hear the call
And we will break right through this wall

Like a light that softly glows
It whispers fast and cuts through shadows
This can´t be coincidence
I feel your heartbeat in the silence

You returned – and caught my eye
Nothing to forgive – no reason why
There´s so much light when we collide
And now you´re back – and by my side

AHAHAH this feeling is just so intense –AHAH -You close me in- it´s so intense – AHAH - this feeling is just so intense

I´m falling in you and I´m losing control
It´s so intense – that it burns my soul
An opportunity to good to be true
I wouldn´t know
How to be new
If it wasn´t for you

Maybe

Maybe
 
I just don't get your stubborn view,

So when I'm dancing, does that embarrass you?

I can't explore what you won't allow,

I'm so sick of this town.
 


So for the first time I can see right through.

I'm never losing this game to you,

And as I turn, all I want to know is - 
Are you still with me.
 


It may be baby you haven't had enough

But you're only my baby maybe 
Nothing will change

We won't ever be the same

My ambition's been sleeping lately

There's no delivery from sin

When I'm my only heroine - yeah

It may be baby you haven't had enough

Now you're only my baby maybe 
 


I need a place noone can touch me

Where I can breathe my air freely,

Where the streets sing out liberation, -

Where I am who I am.
 


All this spinning's thrown me off course,

Your obsession's spun and strung me out.

I just need an escape from your claws

To do just what I want.
 
It may be baby you haven't had enough

But you're only my baby maybe 
Nothing will change

We won't ever be the same

My ambition's been sleeping lately

There's no delivery from sin

When I'm my only heroine - yeah

It may be baby you haven't had enough

Now you're only my baby maybe

I'm never lo(oo)sing this game to you,

It may be baby you haven't had enough
But you're only my baby maybe 
Nothing will change
We won't ever be the same
My ambition's been slee-ping late-ly
There's no de-livery from sin
When I'm my only he-ro-ine - yeah
It may be baby you haven't had enough
Now you're only my baby maybe 
 
I need a place noone can touch me
Where I can breathe my air freely,
Where the streets sing out liberation, -

Shit

Written By: Diana Lueger, Paul Steinbauer

Shit

I take a sip of the perfect drug illusion
Cos I need a rest from diving through confusion
All the colors turn to black&white and lose their might
All the channels I was switching are not working right

My future’s not my own decision
It’s made by pc, mac and television
But I don’t care about that all, right now.
One drug has shown me what they won´t allow

Shit! I never believed in a world that’s just
Shit! And when I’m back from my trip, all that’s left is gonna be
Shit! Our revolution´s as boring as unreal
Shit! And now I stop to wonder
Shit! why nobody’s gone there

I hope for changes to make this bearable
Cos what I know now makes life terrible
To know a truth that noone believes in
Like a messiah who’s unable to judge a sin

One day I’m gonna twist and change fate:
Everything we try to do is just too late.
Watch out for screens that make you wait!
Only they’re responsible for anything you rate

Chorus

Tell me one thing you’ve never seen on any screen
Any face you know, any flower, any tree
All you watch makes you feel too fat or feel too lean
It gives you satisfaction, creates your perfect enemy

Chorus
