Fenster Breaks New Ground with Bones LP
First Shows in the US + SXSW


NY-Berlin trio Fenster have announced their forthcoming debut full-length, Bones, slated for a March 13 release with Morr Music. The group will embark on their first ever US tour including three performances in NYC surrounding their scheduled appearances at SXSW ’12. Listen to ‘Oh Canyon’ and ‘White to Red’ at their bandcamp.
Fenster began as New York native JJ Weihl and Berlin-based Jonathan Jarzyna started experimenting with de-constructed pop music, layering subtle distortions, melodic chords and city soundscapes under dream narratives. Their new album Bones takes its narrative structure from the associative logic of dreams, weaving morbid imagery and playful fairytales together into a sardonic play against backdrops of dark forests, train rides, graveyards, mountains and seashores. Fenster’s sound and recording style has analog warmth, exploring the relationship between machine errors in their circuit bended beats and the tactile use of objects and instrumentation. With influences ranging from the Velvet Underground, to the sounds of broken records, the hum of a washing machine, or the faint melodies of oldies tunes through their kitchen radio, at times, you might be reminded of an American version of The xx.
