Lead vocalist/guitarist Clemens Rehbein and bassist/percussionist Philipp Dausch kicked off the set with their Jack Johnson-assisted single “Don’t Let Me Down,” which the German folk group released last Friday (May 1).
“We listened to Jack’s music since we were teenagers, so we’ve been big fans for years now,” Rehbein said after wrapping up the acoustic tune. “And it was such a nice experience meeting him on tour two years ago, I guess, for the first time? That already felt like a life goal. And we kept in touch and then we started working together on that song. And now it’s out and it’s just very exciting.”
In the middle of their mini concert, the two brought back “Stolen Dance,” their first single from 2013 that Dausch described on the Billboard livestream as “the song that brought us here.” And it sure did nearly seven years ago: “Stolen Dance” topped several Billboard charts from 2013 to 2014, including the Heatseekers Songs, Rock Airplay and Alternative Songs charts as well as other countries’ tallies such as France and Switzerland.
