German duo, Grandbrothers have shared their third album ALL THE UNKNOWN via City Slang/ Inertia Music.
With the new album, the full potential of GRANDBROTHERS unfolds with their unique fusion of classical music and electronic soundscapes. The album maps out a wide-open soundworld of compositional possibilities for pianist Erol Sarp and producer/electronic engineer Lukas Vogel, who have been putting their modern and unique electronic spin on prepared piano since first forming in 2012. Forgoing the need to play every single note live, this new album sees the pair juxtapose the old and new once again, venturing further into the electronic cosmos warmed with a grand piano, self-built computer-controlled mechanics, and a new sense of latitude.
GRANDBROTHERS‘ previous albums 'Dilation' and 'Open' (in case you missed any of these - download full discography again here) are considered "two of the most important German electronic pop records of the last decade" (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung). Last albums‘ key track 'Bloodflow' alone has accumulated over 30 million streams across all platforms. Additionally, 'Bloodflow' took on a whole new life when French directors Nakache & Toledano ('Intouchables') chose it as the soundtrack centerpiece of their film 'Hors Normes' (2019) and one of the worlds biggest home retailer LEROY MERLIN featured this outstanding track in a big TV campaign - the spot was a viral hit and gained over 6 million views within a couple of days.
