Germany’s favourite export performing “Firebird” in a bar in Cologne.

The idea of a session with german band Milky Chance was in our heads for quite a long time. In late 2017, we finally had the chance to work with them. It was cold and rainy, so we had to move the shoot inside. We chose our favourite bar in Cologne, King Georg. The song, “Firebird” fits the atmosphere very well, it’s a perfect example of how well Milky Chance are performing: Accompanied only by two guitars, a little percussion and a violin, the song shines even more than on the record, in our opinion.

Milky Chance released their debut in 2013, had a surprise mega-hit called “Stolen Dance” and released their second record in 2017. It displays the four years in between those two records quite a lot. “Blossom” feels much more grown-up, not as raw as “Sadnecessary”. After touring all over Europe, Canada and the USA, they’ve also played shows in Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa. There hasn’t been a german band being that successful in the whole world for a really long time.

Milky Chance’s live shows are wonderful, be sure to catch them when they are in town.
