“Prepare to fall in love with this band” – Wonderland Magazine

Lea Porcelain share their video for new single, ‘Remember’, from the forthcoming full-length debut ‘HYMNS TO THE NIGHT’, out June 16th. Lea Porcelain detail the video: “This video somehow symbolises this journey and our train of thought to be patient and to find that special something, that spark. And as we found it, it was so extraordinary but on the other hand so familiar as if it had been there forever. In the end this video became a journey for us as well to find and remember the essential things in life”.

‘HYMNS TO THE NIGHT’ 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 recording studio. The spectrum of the album is extremely wide. Hymns To The Night bends genres, yet every song works together, playing with very different moods.  Lea Porcelain describe their sound “atmospheric, cinematic and melancholic”.

Before this, project members Julien Bracht and Markus Nikolaus were working within completely separate musical spheres. Bracht was a successful techno producer touring the world, Nikolaus a go-to independent musician, navigating between Berlin and the rest of the world.

Both frequented legendary club Robert Johnson, in Frankfurt. Bracht was a regular fixture, and Nikolaus was drawn to the way his future bandmate favoured live instrumentation over the norm.  Within hours of their first session, Bracht promised he’d bid farewell to solo success in order to make this project work. “The first session was a complete new experience of making music,” he remembers. “There was such a power behind this music.” Never confined by genre, they’re free to pursue any kind of song, through whichever route they please.

Lea Porcelain aim to make “universal” music; songs people can treasure in day, night, between different states of mind. They want to make music for “the entire world”, and this partly stems from a globe-trotting past.  No matter the genre, range of instruments or sound palette, their presence is unmistakable. Every song is tied together by the duo’s ethos, their free approach towards making music.  In the standout moments of their debut, everything spills outwards, drums cascading into the distance, a cross between self-destruction and complete euphoria.

 

‘HYMNS TO THE NIGHT’ will be available on CD, double gatefold vinyl and digitally. Pre-orders are available here.
