Berlin’s Lea Porcelain will release their debut album ‘Hymns To The Night’ on June 16th. As anticipation builds, the duo have shared the Vessels remix of their single ‘Bones’. What begins as a haunting blanket of minimalism, eventually explodes into a euphoric electronic deliverance.
Over the years there have been a resurgence of the post-punk, industrial, synth and new wave sound that groups like Depeche Mode and Nine Inch Nails helped to foster into the mainstream psyche. However, it is a rare feat at times to actually come across bands who are trying to push the sound further rather than simply fostering a carbon copy version of the previous groups mentioned. However, when Berlin-based Lea Porcelain came on the scene back in 2015, there was something very other about the pair. Songs such as ‘A Year From Here’ and ‘Out Is In’ straddled between melancholic electronica, krautrock, post punk and things in between.
With Lea Porcelain’s LP ‘Hymns To The Night’ finally out June 16th, the Berlin-based duo now drops a touching video for the track ‘A Year From Here’. Directed by Micki Rosi Richter along with Lea Porcelain, the story revolves around a mother who is standing strong for her daughter yet is clearly dealing with a sense of personal pain. Shot in black and white, the video is a brilliant accompaniment to another great track from the group. Have a look.
