SPARKLING from Cologne, Germany has been formed by the brothers Levin and Leon Krasel and
was completed by their friend Luca Schüten in 2013. Following on their 2016 EP “This is not the
paradise they told us we would live in”, produced by Moses Schneider, “The Same Again” is now
the first released single of their long-anticipated debut album. It was produced by Andy Ramsey of
Stereolab and was recorded in London and Düsseldorf. For the first time, the band now combine
German and English language in their work. This statement reflects on the band members’
multicultural environments plus the experiences they gathered at the universities and art schools
they visit. Half a year spent in London, double headline tours with French bands and innumerable,
wild concerts in small but sweaty clubs all over Europe have added up to a distinct sound,
clearly audible in the new album. Be ready to find it between sharp reflections on shared experiences and a desire to explore more and more of what this world offers.
