Following the wide praise of their debut single Josef, which grabbed the attention of the Huffington Post, the Daily Mirror, Yahoo OMG, and Digital Spy, BERLIN BERLIN return with another sky-scraping single, Be Here.

A glorious paean to faith, devotion and love, Be Here is another huge indicator of the band’s ability to write stadium-sized, heartfelt pop – and shows why the band were quickly invited by Google to shoot a video session in London for the internet giants.

 

The video from the session will be published on the week of the single’s release.

Be Here is backed by a transformative, shimmering rework of Furniture‘s 1986 classic Brilliant Mind. It’s simply a must-listen, and the band performed it live in the BBC Introducing Manchester studio for 6 Music’s Elizabeth Alker, who said it sounded “spectacular.

BERLIN BERLIN’s mantra is ‘dark beauty on epic scale’, and their sound is immediate, vast and driven, combining brooding 80s/90s electronica with contemporary rhythms – to fashion something truly vast, life-affirming and euphoric.

“Are these the new Killers?” – The Huffington Post
“Gritty, electro-infused rock that invokes moody New Wave influences” Idolator
“Stadium-rousing electronica” – Digital Spy

The band is: Jonny Holland (vocals/keys), Stuart Winnington (guitar/keys) and Jordan Hunstone (drums). They signed to Manchester’s MUK Records in January 2014.

Yet more confirmation that the waves being made by Manchester’s MUK Records are having a bigger impact and wider reach; as four of their incredibly diverse signings were played on BBC Introducing Manchester by BBC 6 Music’s Elizabeth Alker.

Berlin BerlinMUK’s purveyors of euphoric, stadium-sized pop were also in the studio – talking extensively before playing a fabulously glossy live cover version of Furniture’s cult classic Brilliant Mind, which Elizabeth described as sounding “absolutely wonderful – spectacular!”

She was no less impressed by the other MUK artists on the playlist: identifying Red Sky Noise‘s eclectic and powerful sound as “dance-y, jazzy, soulful… an absolute joy… ones to keep an eye on!” – and favourably compared singer Mica’s vocals to Emili Sandé.

Meanwhile, MDNGHT‘s ability to deftly recreate the feel of a sultry summer night’s party in their music was spotted – “perfect for a Saturday night,” whilst Bird To Beast‘s growing musical renown was just as clear: “lovely and pastoral – they know how to do harmonies!”

  • BERLIN BERLIN’s Brilliant Mind cover is the B-side to their fabulous new single, Be Here – Impact Date 17th November.
  • MDNGHT will be performing at this year’s Manchester Pride.
  • Red Sky Noise‘s video for their huge, soulful Only You has soared to over 20,000 views on Youtube.
  • Bird To Beast are touring extensively all summer and have just released the poignant video to Catacombs.

BERLIN BERLIN RELEASE “JOSEF” – SILKY WIDESCREEN MODERN POP

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.
