BERLIN BERLIN – Josef
Impact Date: 19th August 2013
Label: MUK Records
New Manchester three-piece, Berlin Berlin, combine a magpie approach to music of the past with an ambitious pop mindset.
The result? The melancholic throb of the choicest 70s and 80s electronic pop pioneers melds with silky, widescreen modern pop.
Debut single Josef is the perfect introduction to the three-piece’s aesthetic: euphoric pop and high-gloss choruses meeting the careful sonic constructions of Krautrock and vast stadium sounds.
Deep drum sounds punch through glittering synths and nagging hooks pepper the song: here’s a band whose aim is clear – they want to fill dancefloors and keep them moving.
Debuting exclusively on Digital Spy, Josef’s video delivers on Berlin Berlin’s promise of ‘dark beauty on an epic scale’.
Berlin Berlin host Josef’s launch party at Manchester’s Soup Kitchen on the 5th July.
