An Ode to : Talking to Turtles

6A1Q4883n

About the Duo

Who's talking there you're asking? That's Florian Sievers and Claudia Göhler. Both from the very north of Germany they moved to Leipzig after starting their band in Rostock in 2007.
Since then they brought out three albums, the latest being "Split" which came out last year.
If you listen to their music, you will probably - just as I did - wonder why you haven't heard of them before, and why not every single one of the tracks is a hit.
It's pop, and everything the kind of pop music you find in todays charts is NOT. Their music is charming and surprising, lulling and comforting. With unexpected melodies that sound familiar, and contrasting combinations which end up being harmonious. You will love them, every single one of their songs. If you ever get the chance to see them live (and you're probably sick of me telling you this in every single one of these posts) you have to see them perform. The atmosphere is magical.
