Tristesse de la Lune

Tristesse de la Lune (French: "Sadness of the Moon") is an electropop group founded by German musicians Kati Roloff and Gini Martin after they left Blutengel in 2002. Their songs typically have romantic lyrics and draw inspiration from their personal lives or books as well as movies.[citation needed] They carried over their previous contracts with Blutengel's label Out of Line Music.
