Infant Finches
Infant Finches play oblique music that catches you off guard, carelessly balancing between straight forms and cryptic motives.

The duo offer complex yet direct music that brings together polyrhythmic structures, noise and clear melodies in a song like form. An ongoing sense of naivitet carries the listener through abrupt surprises while bearing a transcendental mind at it’s core.
Written, performanced and produced by Jan Philipp and Frederik Bruun, the duo have a discographie of two EP’s entitled Yellow Tape (2019) and Orange Tape (2020) to date. The two band members met each other in the contemporary music scene in Copenhagen Denmark and shortly thereafter formed Infant Finches.

The band’s self released EP Yellow Tape consists of the first four songs they wrote together under the concept “first thought, best thought”. It was conceived over a two month period in a basement rehearsal space and self-released on Bandcamp. It was later picked up and re-released by the record label Papercup Records, who also brought out Orange Tape, their sophomore EP. Orange Tape pushed the central ideas of the debut Yellow Tape further, while implementing unorthodox compositions and long instrumentals an containing an intuitive and joyful core. With similar aesthetics to inspirations such as The Beatles, This Heat, Dirty Projectors and Stereolab, Infant Finches excuses these by twisting and turning the music into a new domain.

Following these releases last year, Infant Finches scheduled concerts around Germany and Europe. Despite the pandemic, they were luckily enough to be able to play a handful of these shows scheduled in Germany and Denmark (c / o Pop Festival - Stream, Staatstheater Darmstadt for Bedroom Disco, Bumann & Sohn, Det Gyldne Liv - Stream etc.).

Spring 2022 will see the release of their first full length album which is recorded and produced with the acclaimed producer Olaf Opal (The Notwist, International Music, Düsseldorf Düsterboys) and is supported by Initiative Musik. This will be followed by an intense tour as both duo and quartet constellation.

Liza Dries
Welcome to the world of Liza Dries, where her daydreams turn into a playful soundscape, combined with digital elements and her soft voice. The Groningen-born, Cologne-based artist released her self-produced debut EP Tegenkomer on Safe Space Records in April 2021. The five-track release tells a story about her contrasting emotions through contemporary, atmospheric sounds and Dutch lyrics. After playing a handful of shows in 2021 in the Netherlands and Germany, she continues working on new songs, grabbing inspiration from the modern alternative pop sounds of Oklou, Sega Bodega and Aldous Harding.
