Düsseldorf’s Grandbrothers released their new album "Open"' on City Slang / Pias.
The duo, whose first album Dilation - released via Berlin’s FILM label, received widespread support both by listeners worldwide and a who’s who of heavyweights in both the fashion and music industries - including Gilles Peterson, Chilly Gonzales, Bonobo & Vivienne Westwood, was launched on City Slang.
Erol Sarp & Lukas Vogel toured extensively following the 2015 release, showcasing their unique approach to live, acoustic electronica in twenty countries. Merging the eponymous grand piano with outboard FX units and twenty electromechanical hammers, the Grandbrothers craft rousing, emotive music with a deftness that vindicates their inherent and much lauded musical talent.
The forthcoming album builds on this ideal, and owes much to that same rich aesthetic so loved by their followers - but at the same time, marks a development of the performance and studio technique that has identified them as an innovative force creating in the fertile ground found between electronic and acoustic music.
