“Seduced me with the hope against destruction,
See the Wall in my mind came down
All the colours, they are growing though the concrete
On old watch towers flowers grow…”
‘My Berlin’ is the first single that is taken from the duo’s sophomore album that will be released early next year, around April.
The single launch is at Petersham Bowling Club Friday 4th November with Jo Meares as support.
Expect a night of understated, romantically dark folk music.
Had the absolute pleasure of supporting Cash Savage the other night.
Here’s a beautifully written review from Chris Familton from Post To Wire and some awesome live photos from AAA Backstage.
Jep and Dep are masters of atmospheric music. With lights dimmed, a great sound mix and songs that possess an austere beauty and an arthouse intimacy, they quickly had an attentive audience – apart from a lone barking voice at the bar who Darren Cross acknowledged with a seething “hey, woman at the bar, stop fucking talking”. New tracks from their forthcoming album were aired, indicating it will be a strong set of songs and though the between-song banter was often thick with black humour, when it comes to performing their songs the duo are deadly serious.
