Rising electronic post-punk duo, Lea Porcelain, are pleased to announce the release of their debut album ‘HYMNS TO THE NIGHT’ on 16th June 2017 with a short introductory film, ‘THIS IS LEA PORCELAIN. A PORTRAIT BY RAMON HAINDL’, an intimate visual portrait of the band living and recording in Funkhaus Berlin.

Coming into view last summer via their genre bending debut EP, ‘Out Is In’, Julien Bracht and Markus Nikolaus marked 2017 with ‘Bones’, an emotive taster of what’s to come. Inhabiting a musical landscape that evokes a post-punk legacy, one that continues to evolve and thrill; culminating in the delivery of the band’s debut album – ‘HYMNS TO THE NIGHT’.

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 recohttps://youtu.be/21rICVxMpRording 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.”

The London via Berlin duo have been swift in getting things off the ground, 2017 has already seen a series of rapturously received live residency shows across London, Berlin and Paris.

The band’s unique cover of Springsteen’s ‘Streets of Philadelphiareveals another side to this young, talented two-piece, a swath of pulsating guitar backed with a metronomic backbeat, almost three minutes of perfect symmetry that has already proven to be a live highlight and destined to be a festival favourite this summer….
