(Concert - post punk)
Presale 9/6 for students (+ presale fee)
Tickets at the doors 12/9 for students
SPARKLING from Cologne, Germany has been formed by the brothers Levin and Leon Krasel and was completed by their friend Luca Schüten in 2013. Following on their 2016 EP “This is not the paradise they told us we would live in”, produced by Moses Schneider, “The Same Again” is now the first released single of their long-anticipated debut album. It was produced by Andy Ramsey of Stereolab and was recorded in London and Düsseldorf. For the first time, the band now combine German and English language in their work. This statement reflects on the band members’ multicultural environments plus the experiences they gathered at the universities and art schools they visit. Half a year spent in London, double headline tours with French bands and innumerable, wild concerts in small but sweaty clubs all over Europe have added up to a distinct sound, clearly audible in the new album. Be ready to find it between sharp reflections on shared experiences and a desire to explore more and more of what this world offers.
SEED TO TREE
Coming from an inconspicuous country in the heart of Europe, Luxembourg band Seed to Tree developed from their folk roots into a dedicated indie-pop band reminiscent of acts like Bombay Bicycle Club and Ben Howard.
An intimate voice intertwined with consistent grooves, broad guitar sounds, synth scapes and rich melodies, flirt along the lines of indie pop before meandering atmospheric folk shoegaze kicks in and envelops you.
These past years, Seed to Tree have been touring a lot in Europe, playing festivals like Reeperbahn Festival and supporting bands such as Beirut, Villagers and The Temper Trap. These experiences and new maturity clearly left their traces in the band’s recent sound. The new album, named "Proportions", sounds darker compared to their past work, leading to a musical world that is breaking with their traditional influences and questioning the emotional, intellectual and spiritual proportions within ourselves and society.
