Deathpair // New mini-album “Despair”

Initially starting under the name ZEILE in 2022, Deathpair started their activities in February of this year, releasing their first single “BONDAGE” shortly after in March. The name of the group is derived from the word “despair”, and they describe their music as them “cutting out despair from various perspectives and expressing it in their music that features a fusion of good old visual sound and hardcore punk”.

As a preview, the group has already released the full version of their MV for “R.I.P.” on YouTube:

The mini-album will exist out of 9 tracks in total, some of which might look familiar if you’re familiar with their previous band ZEILE. (Some of the tracks were released on ZEILE’s “M.E.S.S” and “Deathside” singles.) The mini-album also includes tracks from the “BONDAGE” single released last March.

雪 (Yuki) is the owner and driving force behind Arlequin.
She originally started the project in 2009 as a photographer under the name of Arlequin Photography, but developed an interest in journalism and translation ever since. Because of these interests interviews and reviews were added to the project, until it eventually hit the limits as a "photographer" in 2021, and Arlequin Magazine was added to the mix.

雪 (Yuki) is a native Dutch speaker with a graphic design degree, which means she is also the main person behind Arlequin Creations.
After all these years she is still the main person who does interviews the interviews and live photos that you see on Arlequin, but also a large chunk of the reviews and behind-the-scenes work and communication goes through her.

She speaks Dutch and English on a native level, but also understands Japanese and German.
