First meeting in a club in Frankfurt, Markus Nikolaus was immediately drawn to Julien Bracht. Admiring his use of live instrumentation, Nikolaus approached Bracht about starting this project and within hours of the first session it was a done deal.
Now getting ready to release their debut album, Hymns To The Night, the duo combine hypnotic hooks with brooding Ian Curtis-esque vocals to create a sound that they describe as “atmospheric, cinematic and melancholic”.
Releasing the visuals to track “Remember”, we are both aesthetically and audibly swept up in the mesmerising world of Lea Porcelain. As the boys told us themselves, “This video somehow symbolises this journey and our train of thought to be patient and to find that special something, that spark. And as we found it, it was so extraordinary but on the other hand so familiar as if it had been there forever. In the end this video became a journey for us as well to find and remember the essential things in life”.
