Somewhere Underwater

Somewhere Underwater are Picco, Jan, Julien and Flo.

Die Band startet 2014 mit einem Jungen aus Frankreich, seiner Liebe zum Ozean und einem One-Way-Ticket nach Deutschland: Allein in einem 18-Quadratmeter-Apartment über den Dächern von München und 2000 Kilometer von seiner Heimat entfernt flüchtet sich Julien vor dem Staub der Großstadt in Noise Pop, Wave und Synthie. 2015 veröffentlicht er seine erste 7“-Single “Spring Kills My Energy” via AdP Records: Harmonien, die nach Slowdive-Herzschmerz in den 90ern klingen, Wave Pop der 80er und geschickte Arrangements.

The same year, four good friends decided to join him on stage (c/o pop, Sound of Munich) and they recorded their first album. The former solo project became a band with members that share a love of the early Factory/Sarah Records bands and 80’s heartbreaking hits.

With influences from 90’s Noise Pop and that “surf pop” touch from the scratchy records of their parents, the album titled “Slowly & Safely” is finally completed. An introspective mix of nostaglic childhood memories and teenage anxiety, friends and family. Nine songs creating complex compositions, that thoroughly harbor the best of the last two decades and gently bring a new retro sound to the surface.
