Isla de Caras

The music of Isla de Caras has an aloof abstraction that’s almost addictive. From Argentina, the band commanded by Lautaro Cura leaves us a sound proposal that floats in time and space, stuffing it with images and pop motifs. Low fi, soul and chillwave come together in this slow motion party.

Isla de Caras

Queralt Lahoz

The music of the spanish artist Queralt Lahoz is crossed by latin, street and urban sounds: soul, hip hop, trap and dancehall dialogue naturally and gracefully over an aura of coplas and boleros that emerge spontaneously in a kind of  irrepressible revelation of her flamenco origins and her personal landscapes. She rests on her tradition,  relies on the genealogy of the working women in her life and in her suburban childhood, to draw a flowery bridge between past, present and future, which gives her music an unmistakable character.

Lucy Kruger

Lucy Kruger is a singer/songwriter from Cape Town, South Africa who recently moved to Berlin. Her performance focuses on the bare bones of the songs, a slow burning psychedelic folk that is both intimate and ambient. Dreamscapes set against drones allow the stories to drift and dive, fall asleep and come to life. On September 25th this year she will release her second full length album „Sleeping Tapes for Some Girls“ through Unique Records. The new album is made to be a quiet companion for restless evenings.

The album was recorded just before Lucy moved from Cape Town to Berlin in May last year. She had been quietly spinning a soft web of songs and wanted to capture the feeling before leaving. The record was made with a very specific listener in mind. For the last few years Lucy has gone to bed listening to the stories and sounds of songwriters that have became close companions, both challenging and nurturing her and eventually gifting her rest. She wanted to give something of the same to those who might need it. 

The arrangements are minimal and leave space for Lucy’s voice and guitar which are present throughout – reflecting, resisting and trying to reason with conflicted thought.

Jaran Hereid

Jaran (full name: Jaran Hereid) is a songwriter whose work bridges multiple genres and eras. He has proven that he’s not only able to meet every musical challenge that comes his way, but he consistently goes above and beyond what’s expected by writing more and better songs.
Success in Europe
Hailing from western Norway, Jaran has worked and written extensively in Norway’s rock and metal scenes. While always diverse, his songwriting vastly expanded following his 2015 signing to publisher Hacate Entertainment Group (HEG). Blown away by Jaran’s Doomsday Rock band Yuma Sun, HEG President Sarah-Chanderia obtained Europe-wide distribution deals for the band’s first two albums within days of hearing them for the first time. The Europe-wide release of the band’s third album Watch Us Burn (2016-Membran) resulted in multi-national rave reviews, radio play and touring. And packed appearances at industry conferences: Larm (Norway), Reeperbahn (Germany), MIDEM (France) and Eurosonic (The Netherlands) have resulted in widespread industry attention and further acclaim.

International Cuts/Co-writing:
A worldwide co-publishing deal between HEG and Schubert Music Publishing followed in October, 2016 –  a relationship that is already bearing fruit. In the U.K., Jaran has written songs for and/or with Mute Records artist Polly Scattergood and fellow Mute artist (and Mercury Music Prize-nominated) James Chapman, as well as Ben Collier (whose work at London’s Metropolis Studios includes Rihanna, Mick Ronson, will.i.am and David Guetta), Julian Simmons (who has worked with Ed Sheeran and former Spice Girl Geri Helliwell), and new artist Jamie Jamieson. Jaran has also remixed for English supergroup Love Amongst the Ruin (whose members hail from The Cure and Placebo).
Elsewhere in Europe, Jaran has co-written songs intended for artists ranging from Belgium’s hit dance artist Kate Ryan (winner of the World Music Award) to hit Polish artist Piotr Gozdek; additional work in Poland includes the band De Mono, the Bardotka Trio, Pawel Kowalczyk and Ewa Szlachcic. His work with Austrian Georg Lichtenauer and German-based multi gold and platinum songwriter/producer Sandi Strmljan has resulted in songs for a variety of artists, and he has written with up-and-coming US/UK rapper Dan Cody Marston. And he has now turned his eyes east, including writing for hit Korean artists and several upcoming J-pop sessions in Tokyo. In addition, he has turned his hand to electronica with the new project Hippow, which combines original tracks and innovative remixes.

Jaran has successfully participated in writing camps in Germany (Reeperbahn Writing Days), Portugal (where he was granted a residency and worked with Portuguese artists Yafeni and Soundskillz during the Westway Lab Festival) and the Norwegian Songs camp held in conjunction with the Larm festival (where he co-wrote songs for Universal and Sony artists). Jaran’s compositions have also been featured in Nordic film projects, as well as a new European beer campaign.

I Am Stramgram

The sole songwriter hiding behind I Am Stramgram, Vincent Jouffroy, is surrounded by many musician friends he brings along his musical odyssey.
He has just released his debut album ‘Tentacles’ which is the natural result of more than two years of touring in France and abroad. ‘Tentacles’ is an impressionist kaleidoscope of 9 songs that tell the story of paradise lost and ancestral joy, escape and lines, fullness and emptiness, everything that goes through Vincent’s head without being able to explain it but still creates a beautiful unity.

Atlantean Kodex

German Underground Metal Titans ATLANTEAN KODEX have returned from obscurity to redefine Epic Metal with their long-awaited second album, titled „The White Goddess – A grammar of poetic myth“.

“‘The White Goddess‘ is a triumph of heaviness and melancholy, a monument to the spirit of underground metal and the mythology of old Europe.“, says drummer Weiss. „Our sound has grown darker and heavier, like the world has grown darker and heavier in the past few years. At the same time our 70s roots and our love for Bathory and old Manowar are still there. Imagine Quorthon raping Uriah Heep while ,Into Glory ride‘ is blasting from an old tapedeck“, adds guitar player Trummer.

Indeed the band has progressed much since their debut effort „The Golden Bough“. The sound is more mature, more dramatic, more bombastic. Everything on the album spells HUGE in capital letters. While the key coordinates old Manowar (Ross the Boss-era), Bathory (Twilight-era) and obscure US Metal (Fates Warning, Cirith Ungol, Warlord…) are still dominant, the band has manage to explore new ground with „The White Goddess“. This is one of the few albums, which will leave noone cold.

Formed in 2005 ATLANTEAN KODEX immediately managed to conquer the center spot of the new European Epic Metal scene with their regressive and uncompromising musical approach.

Already their first demo „The Pnakotic Demos“ (2007) put them in the spotlight of fans and journalists worldwide. Not only was the demo elected „Demo of the Month“ in Germany‘s leading magazine Rock Hard, but also it opened the doors to renowned festivals such as Keep it True (Germany) or Up the Hammers (Greece) for the band.

With a stable line-up including singer Becker, guitarist Koch and Trummer, bassist Kreuzer and drummer Weiss the ATLANTEAN KODEX conquered the next level with their debut album „The Golden Bough“ in 2010. The album was hailed by fans and critics as one of the best German metal albums ever, taking „album of the month“-spots in basically all leading magazines and webzines, like Rock Hard (Germany), Heavy! (Germany), Metal Hammer (Greece) and scoring top scores all over the world. More live shows in the European festival circuit followed. Among others ATLANTEAN KODEX conquered the Hammer of Doom Festival and festivals in Ireland, England, Portugal, Greece and last not least the Rock Hard Festival (Germany).

Now with „The White Goddess“ the band is ready to strike once more. And judging from the tremendous Epic Metal anthems on the album, the strike will be nothing but fatal.

We are the Kodex
We are invincible!

The Mystery Of The Bulgarian Voices

In May 2018, the Mystery Of The Bulgarian Voices released their first album of new studio recordings in over two decades entitled ‘BooCheeMish’. Better known to many as Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares, in ‘BooCheeMish’ the esteemed Bulgarian choir performs together with erstwhile 4AD Records label mate Lisa Gerrard (co-founder of the duo Dead Can Dance) on several tracks, thereby uniting two of the most distinctive vocal acts working in music.

‘BooCheeMish’ introduces 12 brand new songs written for the choir by Lisa Gerrard, the Irish composer Jules Maxwell and the Bulgarian composer Petar Dundakov, who is also the music producer of the album. While some of his tracks are fully original pieces, others are based on folklore songs and dances with original material added.

‘BooCheeMish’ successfully connects Bulgarian folklore with other traditions and cultures, the album manages to retain the unique identity of the voices, vocal styles and techniques of the individual choir members, even when allying them with acoustic accompaniment such as stringed instruments and various types of percussion (performed by David Kuckhermann) and even including beatbox (performed by the beatbox world champion SkilleR).

The album is produced by the Bulgarian subsidiary of Schubert Music Publishing, and in most of the world it is released by the German label Prophecy Productions.

Under the direction of Dora Hristova, the choir has performed over 1250 concerts outside its home territory since the late 80’s in some of the most prestigious venues in the world. Choir members have also worked with or been sampled by artists as diverse as Kate Bush, U2 and Drake.

Once described as “the marriage of the avant-garde and the Middle Ages”, the magic of the ensemble stems from its success in mastering Bulgaria’s diverse, age-old vocal traditions while simultaneously sounding strikingly modern and original, thanks to the unique choral music structure – multi-part a cappella arrangements that transform its collective sound into strange colours as if something other than the human voice is being heard. Dora Hristova describes it as “a natural, piercing sound for the outdoors to carry across the  fields or from hilltop to hilltop. The sound is created in the larynx and resonates in the chest. It requires great pressure of the breath to create the sound and you must be very strong to sing in this fashion.”

Holygram

Upcoming releases always excite me. Especially when they have that eclectic, driven sound. And no one fits that bill better than the German band known as Holygram. Holygram has that unique blend of retro post-punk ‘electromania’ and modernistic shoegaze introspection. This is solid #indie in it’s truest form.

Holygram will be touring Europe and US/Canada this fall with one of the biggest electronic bands on the planet, VNV Nation, as well as DE/VISION for the North American tour. They will hold two release shows – the first, in Cologne on Nov. 9, marks the end of their European tour, while the Los Angeles release show on Nov. 14 (at The Viper Room) kicks off their North American tour.

About Holygram & ‘A Faction’
German post-punk shoegaze outfit Holygram present ‘A Faction’ – the second single off their long-awaited debut LP ‘Modern Cults’. Comprised of eleven tracks, this album will be released on CD and double vinyl, as well as digitally via Cleopatra Records, on November 9, 2018.

This news follows the lead single ‘Signals’. Prior to that, the Cologne-based outfit released their self-titled EP in 2016. Holygram cleverly blends new wave and Krautrock with post-punk and shoegaze to achieve headstrong multi-layered bliss. This is a thoroughly contemporary homage to the sound of the ’80s with a resolute look to the future – the result is driving, dark and catchy.

Produced by Maurizio Baggio, who also produced The Soft Moon’s ‘Deeper’ and ‘Criminal’ albums, this long-play was recorded at Cologne’s Amen Studios. The new video for ‘A Faction’ is produced by WE OWN YOU GmbH and directed by Jan-Peter Horns with animation by Alison Flora.

Holygram is Patrick Blümel (vocals), Sebastian Heer (drums), Marius Lansing (guitars), Pilo Lenger (synthesizers) and Bennett Reimann (bass). Formed in 2015, the band’s approach to making music references the past, while remaining future-oriented. Hard-to-combine elements cleverly come together to become the soundtrack of a city that appears threatening in the twilight.

The new album intensifies Holygram‘s contemplation of themes such as big cities, alienation and anonymity, hope and memories, love and identity. These reflections interact closely with the band’s unmistakable signature sound. Atmosphere oscillates between the brutal sounds of the big city and the fragility of the people that lose themselves in it – intelligently observed scenarios of a world falling apart in which individuals have long ceased to play a leading role.

The band recently accompanied British synthpop legends OMD on their 2017 European tour and have played numerous festivals, including Mailfeld Derby, Wave-Gotik-Treffen and New Waves Day. Wrapping themselves in dense wafts of mist and cool lighting on stage, they’ve made quite a name for themselves on the live circuit.

As of November 9, the ‘Modern Cults’ LP will be available everywhere, but can already be ordered via Cleopatra Records on CD and vinyl, and also digitally via Bandcamp. The album will be released in Europe via Oblivion / SPV.

Kid Moxie

Kid Moxie is the musical moniker of Greek born, LA-based Elena Charbila. A blend of powerful beats, noir pop melodies and haunting soundscapes, Kid Moxie’s music is ethereal and engrossing. Kid Moxie’s musical collaborations are diverse and unexpected, from indie upstarts like Gaslamp Killer to the legendary Angelo Badalamenti, with whom she created a new version of “Mysteries of Love,” originally recorded with David Lynch and Julee Cruise on the classic Blue Velvet soundtrack.

Tagua Tagua

Tagua Tagua is the project of the brazilian composer Felipe Puperi. From tropicalist psychedelia, and the influence of figures from Brazil’s funk and soul, Tagua Tagua has approached indie from a new, fresh and colorful perspective. An inspired musical journey where we find sinuous melodies and dreamlike timbres in equal parts, creating an always surprising and moving landscape.

 

Polly Scattergood

British singer-songwriter, described by the media as “ethereal, dark, intense and quirky“, while her musical style has been described as “early 21st century electro-dance-pop of London proper”.

Following two critically acclaimed solo albums and an exciting side project collaboration entitled ‘ondeadwaves’, Polly Scattergood returned with her fourth studio record entitled ‘In This Moment’. Sonically the album is powerful and cinematic, scattered with moments of raw intimacy and delicate soundscapes. Encompassing grief and joy in equal measure, the album documents various snap shots of life including her journey towards motherhood.

Isla de Caras

The music of Isla de Caras has an aloof abstraction that’s almost addictive. From Argentina, the band commanded by Lautaro Cura leaves us a sound proposal that floats in time and space, stuffing it with images and pop motifs. Low fi, soul and chillwave come together in this slow motion party.

Mula

Form Dominican Republic and heirs of the caribbean oral tradition, MULA’s songs are short stories set to music as chronicles of romances or other powerful experiences.Through passages full of mysticism and a certain magical naturalism, they build a futuristic fantasy, a science fiction story that emerges without barriers from the warm caribbean landscapes.

 

Queralt Lahoz

The music of the spanish artist Queralt Lahoz is crossed by latin, street and urban sounds: soul, hip hop, trap and dancehall dialogue naturally and gracefully over an aura of coplas and boleros that emerge spontaneously in a kind of  irrepressible revelation of her flamenco origins and her personal landscapes. She rests on her tradition,  relies on the genealogy of the working women in her life and in her suburban childhood, to draw a flowery bridge between past, present and future, which gives her music an unmistakable character.

The Carolyn Sills Combo

The Carolyn Sills Combo is the 2018 Ameripolitan Award for Western Swing Group and their new Marty Robbins-inspired album ‘Return to El Paso’ is currently nominated by The Academy of Western Artists for album of the year (along with their Group of the Year nomination). Known for their signature ‘spaghetti western swing’ style, they have been touring extensively throughout the US over the last few years, logging over 35,000 miles on their tour van. The Combo balances three part vocal harmonies with dueling guitar and non-pedal steel with witty, original songwriting. The band has shared the stage with the likes of Asleep at the Wheel, Riders in the Sky, Southern Culture on the Skids, Don Edwards and James Hand.

Lucía Tacchetti

Lucía Tacchetti (ARG) shakes minds and bodies with edgy electropop. Her songs, reflective, effervescent and at times full of danceable freshness, transport us and project us into the future by creating unmistakable electronic landscapes.

With 3 albums to her credit [Feriado (EP 2015), Degrade (2017), and VOL.3D (2018)] this artist from Bahía Blanca has gone through various sound stages. Her music is constant movement and permanent evolution. This 2020 she will release her next album, Eleté, via Costa Futuro.

Jude Smith

Inspired by class acts such as George Benson, John Mayer, and Michael Jackson, Jude Smith plays to a different tune than most. A Nashville native and multi-instrumentalist, Jude rose to Instagram-stardom through his guitar playing and musical content while showcasing his one-man-band ability – gaining over 100,000 followers in 2019. Since then, his self-produced EP’s and string of singles have amassed over half a million streams, and bring to the table the timeless recipe of an irresistible melody mixed with charming instrumentation, a deep appreciation for groove and musicianship, and carefully crafted arrangements centered around his guitar playing – often being the sole performer on each track. Jude currently lives in Nashville, TN as an Artist and Music Producer.

Lucy Kruger

Lucy Kruger is a singer/songwriter from Cape Town, South Africa who recently moved to Berlin. Her performance focuses on the bare bones of the songs, a slow burning psychedelic folk that is both intimate and ambient. Dreamscapes set against drones allow the stories to drift and dive, fall asleep and come to life. On September 25th this year she will release her second full length album „Sleeping Tapes for Some Girls“ through Unique Records. The new album is made to be a quiet companion for restless evenings.

The album was recorded just before Lucy moved from Cape Town to Berlin in May last year. She had been quietly spinning a soft web of songs and wanted to capture the feeling before leaving. The record was made with a very specific listener in mind. For the last few years Lucy has gone to bed listening to the stories and sounds of songwriters that have became close companions, both challenging and nurturing her and eventually gifting her rest. She wanted to give something of the same to those who might need it. 

The arrangements are minimal and leave space for Lucy’s voice and guitar which are present throughout – reflecting, resisting and trying to reason with conflicted thought.

Jaran Hereid

Jaran (full name: Jaran Hereid) is a songwriter whose work bridges multiple genres and eras. He has proven that he’s not only able to meet every musical challenge that comes his way, but he consistently goes above and beyond what’s expected by writing more and better songs.
Success in Europe
Hailing from western Norway, Jaran has worked and written extensively in Norway’s rock and metal scenes. While always diverse, his songwriting vastly expanded following his 2015 signing to publisher Hacate Entertainment Group (HEG). Blown away by Jaran’s Doomsday Rock band Yuma Sun, HEG President Sarah-Chanderia obtained Europe-wide distribution deals for the band’s first two albums within days of hearing them for the first time. The Europe-wide release of the band’s third album Watch Us Burn (2016-Membran) resulted in multi-national rave reviews, radio play and touring. And packed appearances at industry conferences: Larm (Norway), Reeperbahn (Germany), MIDEM (France) and Eurosonic (The Netherlands) have resulted in widespread industry attention and further acclaim.

International Cuts/Co-writing:
A worldwide co-publishing deal between HEG and Schubert Music Publishing followed in October, 2016 –  a relationship that is already bearing fruit. In the U.K., Jaran has written songs for and/or with Mute Records artist Polly Scattergood and fellow Mute artist (and Mercury Music Prize-nominated) James Chapman, as well as Ben Collier (whose work at London’s Metropolis Studios includes Rihanna, Mick Ronson, will.i.am and David Guetta), Julian Simmons (who has worked with Ed Sheeran and former Spice Girl Geri Helliwell), and new artist Jamie Jamieson. Jaran has also remixed for English supergroup Love Amongst the Ruin (whose members hail from The Cure and Placebo).
Elsewhere in Europe, Jaran has co-written songs intended for artists ranging from Belgium’s hit dance artist Kate Ryan (winner of the World Music Award) to hit Polish artist Piotr Gozdek; additional work in Poland includes the band De Mono, the Bardotka Trio, Pawel Kowalczyk and Ewa Szlachcic. His work with Austrian Georg Lichtenauer and German-based multi gold and platinum songwriter/producer Sandi Strmljan has resulted in songs for a variety of artists, and he has written with up-and-coming US/UK rapper Dan Cody Marston. And he has now turned his eyes east, including writing for hit Korean artists and several upcoming J-pop sessions in Tokyo. In addition, he has turned his hand to electronica with the new project Hippow, which combines original tracks and innovative remixes.

Jaran has successfully participated in writing camps in Germany (Reeperbahn Writing Days), Portugal (where he was granted a residency and worked with Portuguese artists Yafeni and Soundskillz during the Westway Lab Festival) and the Norwegian Songs camp held in conjunction with the Larm festival (where he co-wrote songs for Universal and Sony artists). Jaran’s compositions have also been featured in Nordic film projects, as well as a new European beer campaign.

I Am Stramgram

The sole songwriter hiding behind I Am Stramgram, Vincent Jouffroy, is surrounded by many musician friends he brings along his musical odyssey.
He has just released his debut album ‘Tentacles’ which is the natural result of more than two years of touring in France and abroad. ‘Tentacles’ is an impressionist kaleidoscope of 9 songs that tell the story of paradise lost and ancestral joy, escape and lines, fullness and emptiness, everything that goes through Vincent’s head without being able to explain it but still creates a beautiful unity.

Atlantean Kodex

German Underground Metal Titans ATLANTEAN KODEX have returned from obscurity to redefine Epic Metal with their long-awaited second album, titled „The White Goddess – A grammar of poetic myth“.

“‘The White Goddess‘ is a triumph of heaviness and melancholy, a monument to the spirit of underground metal and the mythology of old Europe.“, says drummer Weiss. „Our sound has grown darker and heavier, like the world has grown darker and heavier in the past few years. At the same time our 70s roots and our love for Bathory and old Manowar are still there. Imagine Quorthon raping Uriah Heep while ,Into Glory ride‘ is blasting from an old tapedeck“, adds guitar player Trummer.

Indeed the band has progressed much since their debut effort „The Golden Bough“. The sound is more mature, more dramatic, more bombastic. Everything on the album spells HUGE in capital letters. While the key coordinates old Manowar (Ross the Boss-era), Bathory (Twilight-era) and obscure US Metal (Fates Warning, Cirith Ungol, Warlord…) are still dominant, the band has manage to explore new ground with „The White Goddess“. This is one of the few albums, which will leave noone cold.

Formed in 2005 ATLANTEAN KODEX immediately managed to conquer the center spot of the new European Epic Metal scene with their regressive and uncompromising musical approach.

Already their first demo „The Pnakotic Demos“ (2007) put them in the spotlight of fans and journalists worldwide. Not only was the demo elected „Demo of the Month“ in Germany‘s leading magazine Rock Hard, but also it opened the doors to renowned festivals such as Keep it True (Germany) or Up the Hammers (Greece) for the band.

With a stable line-up including singer Becker, guitarist Koch and Trummer, bassist Kreuzer and drummer Weiss the ATLANTEAN KODEX conquered the next level with their debut album „The Golden Bough“ in 2010. The album was hailed by fans and critics as one of the best German metal albums ever, taking „album of the month“-spots in basically all leading magazines and webzines, like Rock Hard (Germany), Heavy! (Germany), Metal Hammer (Greece) and scoring top scores all over the world. More live shows in the European festival circuit followed. Among others ATLANTEAN KODEX conquered the Hammer of Doom Festival and festivals in Ireland, England, Portugal, Greece and last not least the Rock Hard Festival (Germany).

Now with „The White Goddess“ the band is ready to strike once more. And judging from the tremendous Epic Metal anthems on the album, the strike will be nothing but fatal.

We are the Kodex
We are invincible!

The Mystery Of The Bulgarian Voices

In May 2018, the Mystery Of The Bulgarian Voices released their first album of new studio recordings in over two decades entitled ‘BooCheeMish’. Better known to many as Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares, in ‘BooCheeMish’ the esteemed Bulgarian choir performs together with erstwhile 4AD Records label mate Lisa Gerrard (co-founder of the duo Dead Can Dance) on several tracks, thereby uniting two of the most distinctive vocal acts working in music.

‘BooCheeMish’ introduces 12 brand new songs written for the choir by Lisa Gerrard, the Irish composer Jules Maxwell and the Bulgarian composer Petar Dundakov, who is also the music producer of the album. While some of his tracks are fully original pieces, others are based on folklore songs and dances with original material added.

‘BooCheeMish’ successfully connects Bulgarian folklore with other traditions and cultures, the album manages to retain the unique identity of the voices, vocal styles and techniques of the individual choir members, even when allying them with acoustic accompaniment such as stringed instruments and various types of percussion (performed by David Kuckhermann) and even including beatbox (performed by the beatbox world champion SkilleR).

The album is produced by the Bulgarian subsidiary of Schubert Music Publishing, and in most of the world it is released by the German label Prophecy Productions.

Under the direction of Dora Hristova, the choir has performed over 1250 concerts outside its home territory since the late 80’s in some of the most prestigious venues in the world. Choir members have also worked with or been sampled by artists as diverse as Kate Bush, U2 and Drake.

Once described as “the marriage of the avant-garde and the Middle Ages”, the magic of the ensemble stems from its success in mastering Bulgaria’s diverse, age-old vocal traditions while simultaneously sounding strikingly modern and original, thanks to the unique choral music structure – multi-part a cappella arrangements that transform its collective sound into strange colours as if something other than the human voice is being heard. Dora Hristova describes it as “a natural, piercing sound for the outdoors to carry across the  fields or from hilltop to hilltop. The sound is created in the larynx and resonates in the chest. It requires great pressure of the breath to create the sound and you must be very strong to sing in this fashion.”

White Heat

Swiss & die Andern

Swiss and Die Andern is a German punk rock band from Hamburg. The formation consists of the frontman Swiss, as well as the bassist Matze Grimm, the guitarist Jakob Schulze, the drummer Tobias Gerth and the DJ Da Wizard.

 

In September 2014, they released the first official release of their own label Missglückte Welt (distribution via Soulfood) with the EP “Schwarz Rot Braun”. For the release, Swiss and Die Andern played three live shows for fans and music journalists on a boat trip across the Elbe in the Port of Hamburg. In the fall of 2014, Swiss and Die Andern accompanied the band J.B.O. on her tour through Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Performances at Inas Nacht in the ARD and at several festivals followed.

 

Already in January 2015, the debut album „Grosse Freiheit” appeared, with the Swiss and the Andern reached number 44 in the Media Control album charts in Germany. The video releases to Miss you and ashes to dust made it to rotation on several TV channels. In 2016, the second album Failed World followed and after the 2017 released EP We against the summer of 2018, the third album „Randalieren für die Lieb“ appeared and entered the german sales charts on #2.

Holygram

Upcoming releases always excite me. Especially when they have that eclectic, driven sound. And no one fits that bill better than the German band known as Holygram. Holygram has that unique blend of retro post-punk ‘electromania’ and modernistic shoegaze introspection. This is solid #indie in it’s truest form.

Holygram will be touring Europe and US/Canada this fall with one of the biggest electronic bands on the planet, VNV Nation, as well as DE/VISION for the North American tour. They will hold two release shows – the first, in Cologne on Nov. 9, marks the end of their European tour, while the Los Angeles release show on Nov. 14 (at The Viper Room) kicks off their North American tour.

About Holygram & ‘A Faction’
German post-punk shoegaze outfit Holygram present ‘A Faction’ – the second single off their long-awaited debut LP ‘Modern Cults’. Comprised of eleven tracks, this album will be released on CD and double vinyl, as well as digitally via Cleopatra Records, on November 9, 2018.

This news follows the lead single ‘Signals’. Prior to that, the Cologne-based outfit released their self-titled EP in 2016. Holygram cleverly blends new wave and Krautrock with post-punk and shoegaze to achieve headstrong multi-layered bliss. This is a thoroughly contemporary homage to the sound of the ’80s with a resolute look to the future – the result is driving, dark and catchy.

Produced by Maurizio Baggio, who also produced The Soft Moon’s ‘Deeper’ and ‘Criminal’ albums, this long-play was recorded at Cologne’s Amen Studios. The new video for ‘A Faction’ is produced by WE OWN YOU GmbH and directed by Jan-Peter Horns with animation by Alison Flora.

Holygram is Patrick Blümel (vocals), Sebastian Heer (drums), Marius Lansing (guitars), Pilo Lenger (synthesizers) and Bennett Reimann (bass). Formed in 2015, the band’s approach to making music references the past, while remaining future-oriented. Hard-to-combine elements cleverly come together to become the soundtrack of a city that appears threatening in the twilight.

The new album intensifies Holygram‘s contemplation of themes such as big cities, alienation and anonymity, hope and memories, love and identity. These reflections interact closely with the band’s unmistakable signature sound. Atmosphere oscillates between the brutal sounds of the big city and the fragility of the people that lose themselves in it – intelligently observed scenarios of a world falling apart in which individuals have long ceased to play a leading role.

The band recently accompanied British synthpop legends OMD on their 2017 European tour and have played numerous festivals, including Mailfeld Derby, Wave-Gotik-Treffen and New Waves Day. Wrapping themselves in dense wafts of mist and cool lighting on stage, they’ve made quite a name for themselves on the live circuit.

As of November 9, the ‘Modern Cults’ LP will be available everywhere, but can already be ordered via Cleopatra Records on CD and vinyl, and also digitally via Bandcamp. The album will be released in Europe via Oblivion / SPV.

FTR

Yann (vocal, bass) and Brice (guitar) met just after moving to Paris to form Future, now named FTR. After the release of their first EP ‘Abyss’ in 2013, Pauline joined the band as keyboardist. Since then, the band is producing a nervous hypnotic music, enhanced by different influences (from Jesus And Mary Chain to Oasis) and a touch of child-like irony.
FTR’s first album ‘Horizons’ was released on French label Requiem Pour Un Twister in May 2015. They are currently working on their new album, scheduled for next Autumn.

Fewjar

Fewjar was founded in the winter of 2009 by Felix Denzer and Jakob Joiko. Their first joint songs under the name Fewjar they took as a Christmas gift for friends and family.

After a few minor appearances, the duo began writing the songs in 2010 for their first official album, Journey Of Dam, which was a mix of songs and radio-playing interludes. The album was released the following year. At the same time, the band began to document their creative process on the same YouTube channel “Fewjar” in vlog form.

On September 13, 2013 the second album of the duo with the name AFewSides was released.

After their debut as the opening act at the 2014 Videodays in the Cologne Lanxess Arena they played on 18 May 2016 their first full-length concert in the sold-out Bi Nuu in Berlin.

On October 28, 2016, the third album Until. To this album took place in November 2016, the first tour of Germany the band under the name Until Tour instead, which was continued in spring 2017 in four major German cities.

Since December 15, 2017 Andre Moghimi is officially the third member of the band. On April 25, 2018, her first album appeared as a trio, Gamma. This was followed by a tour of the album and the announcement of the Gamma – Aftermath Tour on September 24, 2018, which will start on December 18, 2018 and end on December 22, 2018 with their first foreign concert in Vienna.
