Berlin/NY quartet Fenster have announced a US tour and return to SXSW in support of their forthcoming sophomore album, The Pink Caves, out March 4th on Morr Music. The album follows their debut, Bones, which received critical acclaim from the likes of KEXP, NPR, The New Yorker, MTV, NYLON, Refinery29, BrooklynVegan, Team Coco, and more, often gaining favorable comparisons to The Velvet Underground, Broadcast or The xx.

Work began on The Pink Caves in early 2013. A home studio was set up in a cabin in East Germany and the whole house was wired so every room contained different elements, set up in such a way that they were able to record live altogether. As a result The Pink Caves radiates with an intuitive and spontaneous approach to noise experimentation. The band reputedly used the house they recorded in as an instrument in itself, using slamming doors, clanging the metal oven, the ticking of clocks, the animals in the yard, the water in the well, candlesticks, coat hangers and matches…whatever happened to be within reach. All of this was captured by producer Tadklimp, whose idiosyncratic and inimitable production skills unravel the complexities and textures of the album.

Fenster is: Jonathan Jarzyna, JJ Weihl, Rémi Letournelle, Lucas Chantre
Production: recorded and mixed by Tadklimp
