LSD FAZE TIME: Die Heiterkeit

Hamburg based girl trio Die Heiterkeit are the next big thing in the indie-pop world. Their depute album “Herz aus Gold” won over the critics and the crowd. Find out more about the charming young ladies.


Our names are Stella Sommer, Rabea Erradi and Stefanie Hochmuth but you might know us as Die Heiterkeit.
We were born in Germany and grew up in Germany.
In our childhood our idols were the girls from Immenhof, because they had horses.
We met in Hamburg at Mutter Bar. In 2010 we decided to make music together and started right away. Since then we have released a 7″ with four songs, a split EP together with Ja, Panik and an Album which will be releases omn Staatsakt in August.

One of the best gigs we played was in Annaberg-Buchholz. It was so much fun and spooky. One of the best gigs we have been to was Bob Dylan, Pavement, Warpaint, Pixies. We loved it.


Now we live in Hamburg. We meet every week for rehearsal and spritzer afterwards.
We sometimes argue when we are tired, but then nothing happens.
We enjoy watching dogs a lot. We can spend hours with listening to Rasmus Englers speeches. One of our favorite places to visit is Asian Imbiss in Hamburg, because they have the best coconut soup.

On weekdays we work and study and on weekends we usually work and drink.

We love animals and hate the guy next to our rehearsal room (on tuesdays).
We are addicted to Club Mate, we just cannot stop smoking.


Tomorrow we will have forgotten a lot of things.
Next month we will be playing at Dockville Festival and Jenseits von Millionen Festival.
Next year we will release our second album.
In 10 years we hope to live in the country.


If we weren’t Die Heiterkeit, we would be The Beatles.
If our lives were a Hollywood movie, Fury and Fury would have the main roles, because they are cool. If we were a car, we would be a Opel Corsa (silver). If we were an animal, we would be a horse.
If we were a drug ,we would be ecstasy. If we were an invention, we would be the wheel.
If we were an object, we would be a knife. If we could date ourselves, we would do it.

If we could play with anyone it would be Pavement. We would like to collaborate with Cary Grant.

If we had only one wish, it would be brötchen-allyoucaneat at Brotkorb.
We would never be in Playboy Magazine, because we like to stay well dressed.


Our word of advice to the reader would be to have an apple a day. That keeps the doctor away.
