We are recording our first album

We have long been dreaming of making our own album.

After a successful concert year with enthusastic feedback from the crowd and even a first visit abroad we have gone back to our rehearsing cellar.

After an intense summer of preparing we have entered Tape Pound Studio in Lenzburg to record our long developed song ideas.

However, there is lots to do after the studio. Following the recording and mixing, we have many milestones ahead until the album can be released. Mastering, pressing, the artwork and a little bit of promotion are needed to bring our project to a successful ending.

The story behind

We are working on a concept album on migration. Not from a distant, anonymous bird view but set around single human beings, focused on hopes and fears connected to the subject.

Leaving home and finding a place in a foreign country and society is a situation to which all the band members can relate directly or indirectly.

To a certain degree, the album shall also contribute to the political discussion on migration.

Still, musical art remains the primary motivation of the project. We want to have high quality recordings made available in a well-designed form.

It’s always difficult to describe our sound. A translation of the words of

«Loud becomes quiet and vice versa, songs tell stories with almost no words. But which genre? Post Rock, Prog Rock or Alternative? You choose what suits you best!»

Well just have a listen here:
