They started as four and ended up as two. And that is not a bad thing at all. Berge are Marianne and Rocco, two music lovers from Berlin. They sing about happiness and the search for luck is their thread. If you want to learn German their lyrics are definitely worth it. Combined with Marianne’s clear voice you are lost. Lost in a trap of dreams of a better world. Their sound is not as cheesy as this description. It is honest and with a flow of summer in it.

Live they often play with a third drummer or even a fourth musician. Jason Mraz, The Baseballs or the famous german female singer Nena are only a few artists who had Berge as a supporting act at their concerts. Marianne always says that especially Jason Mraz had a very deep influence on her music and her songwriting.

On a far too early morning we met them at a very touristic place: Boxhagener Platz. It is a nice “kiez area” in Friedrichshain. On sundays it is crowded with tourists and residents because there is a flea market where you can find everything from vintage bags to vinyl records. There Berge performed their single “Meer aus Farben” from the homonymous album.
