Surrounded by enchanted forests, with childhoods saturated in dark German fairytales, the symmetry of Jan & Jannike’s names seemed to hint at a story-like inevitability to their intertwining
A passion for music drew them both to Dublin, Ireland, where they studied music and honed their craft. A world away from their roots, it was an urban hub that touched their sound, staying with them as they headed in search of a different kind of inspiration, starting a new chapter in Lanzarote, Canary Islands. Commuting between Germany and Spain they never lack creative endeavours.
Their art is a dancer between two worlds: the urban and the natural; evoking the modernity of city life while drawing from the dark melancholy of their origins. Somewhere between art pop, folktronica and modern jazz pop, they explore a distinct perspective and a fascination with the human condition in its many guises.
Jannike works as a singer and pianist and Jan as a guitarist.
They are also part of SISUCUNDA, a free jazz, avantgarde collective by the Finish-Danish bassist and composer Otso Kasperi Mielonen.
Additionally, they work as composers and arrangers and have already worked for theatre and short film productions such as “I” directed by Catagogo Theatre Collective, "No God Before Me" or "180 Man" by the Irish playwright Cearúil Swords.
