Blood & Honey (Indie/IR/Berlin)
Chris & Linda met in the summer of 2013. Since then they've been writing songs in bars, living rooms & park's in Berlin. Soon they want to release a record.
Die Berliner Band „Hope“ erinnert nicht nur durch ihre treibenden Beats und ihren hypnotischen eindringlichen Gesang an die legendäre Band Portishead aus Bristol. Vom Hip Hop borgten sich die Klang-Tüftler rund um Hope die Sample-Technik, von den Krautrockern der siebziger Jahre das Psychedelische, Ausufernde, Flächige. Vom Folk und Blues stammte die erdenschwere Melancholie, die die Sängerin in seelenschürfende Lyrik gießt und in klagender Slow-Motion mit den langsam groovenden Sound-Konstrukten ihrer Kollegen verwebt.“ - Paul Uhlitzsch, Helgas Stadtpalast
With a soulful, powerful blend of intricate guitar parts and dextrously interwoven vocals, London-based all-female outfit M A R I N E are rather special.
The band first sparked into being in the summer of 2012 when Ruby Jack and Cara Sebastian sat in the warm glow of a campfire. They soon realised their shared longing to move away from the stripped-back arrangements of the folk scene towards something more electric.
Lyrics incorporate personal themes (such as panic attacks and early deaths) while also touching on the mythological. The first EP is due for release in November. Recorded at The Grand Chapel studios just outside London.” Rebecca Davies – Drunken Werewolf Magazine https://www.facebook.com/wearemarinemarine
|Musik Lofi Lounge präsentiert: Milwalkie (Indie/UK/Berlin) + Sarah Kivi & Non-Orchestra (Indie/Helsinki) + I aime Local|
Reverb, guitar rock band from Scotland and Berlin. Loud and melodic. New album 'Adjustment's was released August 2014 and received regular airtime on Flux FM, Radio Eins and Tape TV.
Sarah Kivi & Non-Orchestra
is one of the freshest sounding new talents in the Finnish rhythm music scene. Mixing together bass-heavy electronic elements from Niclas Kristiansson to urban folk and ethnical blues, their music is unique and original and has quickly gained them lots of fans since the debut album Kiveen kirjoitettu was released in 2013. As a singer and a songwriter, Sarah Kivi is always deep and sensitive with her vocals and Finnish lyrics, touching souls and bringing strong emotions. ** Sarah Kivi & Non Orchestra is normally a band of 2-13 members on stage, but this time at Schokoladen we will see something different as Sarah Kivi will get on stage on her own.
I aime Local
Formed in Paris in 1926, I aime Local was a product of long, long nights spent in smokey bars filled with Flapper dresses and Hemingway's beady eyed gaze. Then came the relocation to Berlin. https://soundcloud.com/nonperson/sets/sarah-kivi
