Two years ago we introduced Lea Porcelain, the Berlin/London-based duo that involves Julien Bracht and Markus Nikolaus. They announced the release of the debut album Bones that will be out on June 16th via Lea Porcelain Recordings.
The album was written and recorded over a two year period in Berlin’s FUNKHAUS, a broadcasting house created under Soviet supervision that now houses the world’s biggest recording studio – even bigger than Abbey Road’s Studio 1. “We are proud of what we have made and we have learned a lot through the process,” recall the band. “The spectrum of the album is extremely wide. Every song works together, playing with very different moods. We would describe it as – atmospheric, cinematic and melancholic”.
The band go on to explain: “Every song has its own unique characteristic, from the dystopian feel of ‘Similar Familiar’ to the ethereal, otherworldliness of ‘Loose Life’, we begin to tell a story. There’s the beauty and strength of ‘Warsaw Street’ and ‘Bones’, reflecting the tenderness of ‘Remember’. Each track compliments the other one and represents the emotions we’ve been feeling throughout our time together as a band. We believe in every inch of this record and hope you love it just as much as we do.”
We have the pleasure to premiere The Vessels’ remix of the title-track. Listen below.
