lea porcelain – pool song
Berlin-based post-punk duo Lea Porcelain, made up of producer Julien Bracht and singer Markus Nikolaus, are one of the most exciting and refreshing bands to come out of the German capital. Having originally met at a nightclub in Frankfurt where Bracht was playing, the pair’s evergreen relationship and understanding is sinuous with their musical output over the years. From 2016’s ‘Out Is In’ EP to last year’s magnificent debut full-length ‘HYMNS TO THE NIGHT’, Lea Porcelain’s music couples poignant songwriting with lush, expansive soundscapes that invigorate and awake feelings with ease.
That’s exactly the case with ‘Pool Song’, the wonderful new single which the band have performed as part of their COLORS show. Taken from their forthcoming sophomore album, the single serves as the follow up to previous cuts like ‘Sink Into the Night’ and ‘Future Hurry Slow’ and features Nikolaus’ melancholic and brusque tones weaving their way through the synth-led soundscape penned by Bract.
