Hundreds, Bodi Bill
With an acoustic palette ranging from fine electronica to post-rock and indie pop, Sinnbus is a label operating out of the Berlin underground scene that's certainly worth watching for fans of crossover sounds. The label started 2003 as a collaboration of musicians, artists and friends and has become a trademark for high quality and passionate music. With artists like Bodi Bill and Hundreds, Sinnbus has taken Germany by storm, and believes that it is time for them to work on an international scale, to grow out of the box, to take this music to where it belongs. If there are two bands that are able to represent the agile German music scene, the flickering city of Berlin and the label Sinnbus, it has to be Hundreds and Bodi Bill. New and uncompromising, passionate and sophisticated, emotive and charming. With Bodi Bill and Hundreds Sinnbus brings the label's most exciting artists to an international audience.
// Bodi Bill
In a time of chill, of electronics and calculus Bodi Bill enter the stage with an alternative draft. They inspire with pop songs full of love and devotion, backed up by a heartly coolness only a city like Berlin can bear.
This coolness is burst when 3000 voices sing together on their live shows: "If you don't like Sonic Youth ... fuck off and die!"
The three of Bodi Bill grew up in the Berlin underground scene, as part of post rock bands, as part of the club and dj scene. WMF, Berghain, Melt! - this is Bodi Bill's world now. Plus one of the most forcefully expressive voices you can find these days in the european underground. Fabian Fenk. But just listen, all flowers of speech would be misleading, they would not live up to the expectations.

The sketch of a position, of a fleet shape that can lean towards cold Raster Noton - like aesthetics as well as towards intimate songwriting, that holds the darkness of Low somewhere deep down inside which you will remember as gleaming and euphoric. Offish electronic sounds, fragile remains of breathing and far away hunches that sound like underwater music establish a gentle connection to the immediacy of the embracing and sensual voice. A strict, disciplined and artful texture is drawn only to be immediately filled by love, tears, kisses and laughter, ardour, inebriation, sobering, disenchantment, desperation, occupied by life itself. The music of HUNDREDS grows with every encounter, with every collision and contradiction. It beathes in all the free spaces that suddenly appear. It is as unseizable as the persons behind it. Still it offers to hug everyone.
Hundreds have been invited to this year's Iceland Airways Festival and are going to appear at Eurosonic Festival and SXSW Festival next year.
