Hope Short Info

When we play with HOPE, we understand what we do. Our music, wings and crutches for our deep yearning: letting go.
We take our time. Our songs are persistent. A bit too long. They meander, murmur, silt up and break. A nocturnal wave, reflecting scraps of light. My voice is clear. My words are simple and without restrain.
If we succeed in letting go (but who can promise this), we are a mass.
If we fail, we lean on our crutches. Songs, simple beauty.

After the release of three singles (the latest, 'Cell" on Sinnbus Records) Berlin-based four-piece HOPE is about to put out their debut album in early 2017. Together with producer Olaf Opal (The Notwist, Naked Lunch) they locked up in the premises of an abandoned sanatory near Berlin, the vast and empty rooms reflecting the massive yet fragile sound of the band, and recorded nine songs in five days.

After a year of playing concerts all over Europe along with Algiers, We are the City and Me and My Drummer in 2016, HOPE felt it was the right moment after their formation in 2014 to capture their sound.
Their latest single/video "Cell" was officially selected at TMC London Film Festival, Cork FilmFestival and Los Angeles CineFest 2016.

„HOPE represent thoughtful pop layouts made of beastly basslines and fragile vocals. Music that is not afraid to burst or break. (...) one of the most promising newcomer acts in the current local scene.“
- Christian Morin, Volksbühne Berlin & Headquarter Entertainment

"dark, meandering slow motion beats and beguiling vocals - HOPE turn Trip-Hop back into contemporary music" - taz, die tageszeitung

"powerful, yet deeply intimate, fragile songs" - streem magazine

"music as a forerunner for social transformation (...) alarming guitars, trembling
synths and massive drums dig through raw, dark and menacing Post-Rock premises (...) Hope is more than a faint "it will be allright" - zitty berlin

"If PORTISHEAD met RADIOHEAD… ‘CELL’ gives us HOPE actually, absolutely beautiful. "
