Listen to Oh Canyon

Fenster (USA - DE / Morr Music)
Futuristic nostalgia with minimal percussion and warm echoey guitar riffs with a lyrical bent towards the macabre dada world of dreams.

FENSTER makes de-constructed pop music, layering subtle distortions, melodic chords and city soundscapes under dream narratives and schadenfreude. Their lyrics often find inspiration in the world of ghosts, graveyards, trains, religious imagery, and broken machinery. FENSTER build songs around errors, using circuit bended beats, slamming doors and trashy synths, utilizing the analog warmth of their instrumentation to underscore the interaction between the two vocalists, and the different universes from which they come - New York to Berlin and back again.
After a 7" release on Morr Music last october, including tracks "Oh Canyon" and "White To Red", FENSTER will release their debut album "Bones" in march 2012.

"What really makes Fenster stand out from many other bands is their simultanously dark and warm music combined with an uncanny approach to using sounds" - Blitzgigs
