At such a place contriva, Masha Qrella (Mina, NMFarner), Max Punktezahl (Jersey, the Notwist, Saroos), Rike Schuberty (Masha Qrella, Noel) and Hannes Lehmann (Mina), can be imagined. Four friends on their way from earlier to future days. Each of them a songwriter and an equal part of \"Seperate Chambers\". Four people and their instruments. And the space that connects them fills itself with the atmospheres and sounds. With small big songs, always closer to a pop-song than to instrumental concept music. At the end of the day everything is melody. Hymnal moments when violin and organ get elegiac. Then, again, the wide view to the horizon when two guitar figures interweave. The bass spreads the contours, precisely, unpretentious.
\"Before\" begins with an acoustic guitar on the veranda and is soon carried to the club by a fuzzy bass. A late summer song with sparkling voices. \"bluebootle\" is absorbed in guitars. \"number me\" is a track of music being on the road, acoustic and electric instruments, close together and still breathing and open. \"i can wait\" finally is full of laconic intimacy, songwriter-soul lying in wait, an insistent final chord.
\"Separate Chambers\" was recorded at different places in and around Berlin. Mostly together with Norman Nitzsche (Mina, NMFarner), who also mixed and mastered the album. Occasionally with Andreas Haberl (Jersey) on the drums and with Tobias Hett playing the violin.
