The German trio, known for fusing classical and electronic elements, will release their next LP via Because Music next month.
The trio, Daniel Brandt, Jan Brauer and Paul Frick, has said Echo will find the band going full circle as they mark ten years together. "It's about getting back to what we started off with," says Brandt, "but of course, after ten years, we've gained more know how. When we were starting out we just had one microphone and a broken piano to make our first album." Their first album since 2016, Echo will be released by Because Music—home to acts like Justice and Mr. Oizo—on June 7th.
Brandt Brauer Frick's sound has mutated over the course of four LPs. They began with the organic minimal house of their first album, You Make Me Real, notable for its use of prepared piano, glockenspiel and a rainstick, and evolved that sound until the looser DIY indie of their last LP, Joy, which featured the vocalist Beaver Sheppard on every track.
The band will play tonight at Berlin's XJAZZ Festival, with additional gigs in London and Venves scheduled later this month.
