Urban Spree contributes to the exhibition through 3 Berlin-based artists, ALIAS, EVOL, and Hendrik Czakainski before hosting the show in Berlin from January 17th to February 29th, 2019.

30.10. Berlin, Urban Spree
Admission 7:00. Start 8:00.

PALE HONEY
Pale Honey are Tuva Lodmark (guitar and vocals) and Nelly Daltrey (drums). Their debut EP ‘Fiction’ quickly attracted attention and led to festival shows in Germany and the UK, followed by a longer European tour in spring 2015. In May of the same year, the band released their self-titled debut album ‘Pale Honey’, which was highly acclaimed both internationally and at home in Sweden. The band was featured in a variety of prestigious media including Line of Best Fit, Stereogum and Consequence of Sound.

They were also called “Breaking Act” in the British Sunday Times: “Tuva Lodmark and Nelly Daltrey eschew the synth pop most often associated with their country, favouriting instead a White-Stripesian voice-drums-guitar spareness, with a plinky keyboard sometimes thrown in, that suddenly explodes into violentcolour… brilliant”.

Pale Honey were nominated in the category “Newcomer of the Year” at the P3 Goldgala in Sweden after the release of their debut album, and also in three categories at the Swedish Gaffa Prize. The second album “Devotion” was released in 2017, followed by tours in Scandinavia, Great Britain and Germany and several summer festivals (such as Roskilde). The singles “Get These Things Out Of my Head” and the ABBA cover “Lay All Your Love On Me” were played on high rotation in Sweden and Denmark and also received strong support from Spotify.

“Devotion” was nominated at the P3 Goldgala in Sweden and the band won a prize for the album at the Swedish Manifest Galan. The band is now in the studio working on their third album which will be released in early 2020.

TINY DEATHS
Tiny Deaths is a dream pop duo from Minneapolis and Brooklyn, consisting of singer Claire de Lune and producer Grant Cutler. Their debut album “Elegies” was released by de Lune and Cutler in February 2017. Tastemakers like Stereogum, The Guardian or PopMatters quickly became aware of the duo. Their sound reminds of bands like Beach House, Phantogram or Purity Ring. The two musicians couldn’t be more different. Cutler has a background as an electronic and ambient producer, while de Lune has more RnB influences. Together they create a unique sound of powerful basses and soulful vocals.

Filastine&Nova present Drapetomania

Filastine & Nova present their new album “Draptomania” (Jarring Effects) for the first time in Berlin.

Filastine & Nova are a multimedia duo working to undermine borders. Their music collides electronic beat production with dense layers of voice, concréte sounds, analogue synths and strings. Spin magazine calls it “bass music for crumbling urban futures,” and Pitchfork says “they sound less like `world’ music and more like music from another world.” Another world is exactly what they aim to create, using sound, video,design, and dance to express a radically different vision of the possible.

Filastine is the handle of Barcelona-based composer and video artist Grey Filastine. A former taxi driver from the United States, Filastine studied percussion with the coke-fueled carnival batucadas of Brazil and mystical brotherhoods in Morocco. In 1999 he founded the Infernal Noise Brigade marching band, putting these rhythms to use in a live soundtrack for the Seattle WTO revolt and the globalization protests that followed. DJ/Rupture discovered and released Filastine’s premiere album, Burn It! (2006), launching a decade of critically-acclaimed albums and world tours. One of those tours brought him to Jakarta where he met vocalist Nova Ruth, rhyming in Indonesia’s seminal rap group Twin Sista. Nova’s deep musical roots add much to Filastine’s sound; she was raised singing pentecostal spirituals with her priest grandfather, reciting Quran, and playing Javanese gamelan percussion. Beyond music, Nova’s continues her “day job” building networks among Southeast Asia’s video activists and hackers.

Together they create unique and fearless interventions: an official mixtape for The Act of Killing documentary, a sound swarm at the Paris Climate Summit, a performance in the Calais Jungle migrant camp. Their latest effort, Abandon, is a video series profiling dances of emancipation from work, filmed in locations from coal mines in Borneo to office cubicles in America. The songs of Abandon and a grip of other new tracks will come out this year on the duo’s first full album together, Drapetomania, colliding psychedelic trap, tropical post-folk and a punk ethos into a compelling audio thesis.

Filastine & Nova are foremost performing artists, their live show is where sound, image, and ideas are embodied. They’ve toured the five continents, appearing at festivals such as Sonar (ES), Downtown Cairo Arts (EG), Decibel (US), Les Vieilles Charrues (FR), Foreign Affairs (DE), Mona Foma (AU). For the new Drapetomania performance the duo are working with a guest dancer and cinematic multi-screen visuals to conjure an emergency exit from the anthropocene. Expect to find them anywhere, turning friction into beauty.
