Boreal Sons

In September the very charming Canadian quartet Boreal Sons toured Europe for the first time, and after having visited Holland, Poland and having played several shows at Reeperbahn Festival, they spontaneously paid a visit to Berlin as well, and met us for one afternoon at the beergarden of Urban Spree. This is where they played two songs for us in the early autumn sun, scaling down their rather big and cineastic arrangements to something very essential: For us they played their normally quite noisy art-rock songs with a tenderly picked acoustic guitar, accompanying the dynamic voice of singer Evan. The mellow buzzing and whirring of their analogue synthesizers blended just perfectly with this minimalistic setting and added a rather surreal dimension to this session.

And not only did they bring their wonderful music to Berlin, when they played a show at Urban Spree on the next night, they also left us a little something to give away to you!
