Fenster’s second record The Pink Caves is a dark fairy tale brimming with layers of tremolo guitars, tactile percussion, soft analog synths and moon-dusted vocal melodies. The tracks take you on a slow-motion free fall through the rabbit hole into an ethereal world of spectral soundscapes, lush pop opulence and minimalism drawing inspiration from science fiction, French 70s film scores, Twin Peaks and Lynchian mysticism.
A home studio was set up in a cabin in East Germany and the whole house was wired so every room contained different elements, set up in such a way that they were able to record live altogether. The band reputedly used the house they recorded in as an instrument in itself.
With this record, Fenster ventures into new spaces, exploring different techniques, instrumentation and song structures. The album’s title and aesthetic derive from the concept of a make-belief heaven, a place you go when you die that only exists in your mind. Welcome to The Pink Caves.
