At the center of their music has always been the connection between the old and the new. Now, with their fourth album Late Reflections (out April 21, 2023 on City Slang), the German-Swiss musical duo Grandbrothers place their work in relation to an institution that predates their own music by seven centuries: the Cologne Cathedral. The iconic monument of Gothic architecture, UNESCO World Heritage and Germany's most visited landmark served as an unorthodox recording studio for Erol Sarp and Lukas Vogel's new album. For the first time in the history of its existence, the cathedral has made its premises available for recordings of this kind. The result is an album with a precise sense of history and architecture, an album that makes the spatial characteristics of this magnificent building part of its hypnotic composition and transforms them into sound.
The sound from the special building in Cologne will be transferred to the Theater des Westens on October 02, 2023, once again giving Grandbrothers the distinction of being a very special and exciting act of the modern era.
