Thursday 7th November
The Hope & Ruin - Bar Show

FFO: Synth driven post-punk, Corners, Sextile, Art Brut.

SPARKLING from Cologne, Germany was formed by brothers Leon and Levin Krasel start playing music together at an early age, joined by Luca Schüten on Bass in 2013. Whilst studying at University and Art School, the group focussed their spare time on creating a distinctly unique sound and playing small sweaty clubs all across Europe. After living in London in 2015, visiting or playing gigs on a daily basis while working menial daytime jobs, Sparkling released their debut EP 'This is not the paradise they told us we would live in', produced by Moses Schneider, in 2016 and brought them praise across many german and international blogs and radios. Shows in Paris, as well as others in France followed and brought them to write a multilingual debut album, that features languages German, English and French. Having produced in Düsseldorf and London with Andy Ramsay from Stereolab, Sparkling are no product of a regional scene. This is the preeminent blueprint of a truly European band. Witness what it really means to be part of an open Europe, at a concert or listening to a record. As of now all of this can be heard on their first full-length album "I Want to See Everything", which will be released on August 23rd.
