"I saw them performing at Mama Jazz Festival in Vilnius last autumn and I thought I could challenge you to meet and listen to this mind-blowing not classifiable group" Voicu Radescu, Director Green Hours JAZZ Fest, Bucharest, Rumania "...besorgniserregend gut." Stefan Wolf, Amusio.de, 16.09.2015 German Version below.

Safran is a German band roaming on the ridge between Experimental Folk and Jazz, a mixture of Portishead and the Beatles, John Cage and Lady Gaga. The four musicians use eight instruments to create a distinctive and extensive but always surprising sound. The multifarious voice of Klaus Schüller (v, g, sax) layers over the sometimes spheric, sometimes clear-cut foundation laid by Ben Briggmann (b), Friedrich Weber (p, vln, sampler) and Mats Niepmann (dr, sax). With a strictly adhered distance to the rest of the music scene, Safran create counter-intuitive and strangely familiar compositions and songs to appease your thirst for musical progression.

Safran ist eine 4 köpfige Band, die sich an der Grenze von Experiment und Pop bewegt, eine Mischung aus Portishead und den Beatles, John Cage und Lady Gaga. Der Sound ist tief und bewegend, melancholisch und expressiv. Pathos und Gesellschaftskritik spiegeln sich in einem Gesamtkonzept wider, das sich in Medienkunst und Musik vereint. Interaktive Visuals, Homepages, Alter-Egos des Bandlogos, nichts geschieht hier sinnfrei.
Safran erzeugen mit 11 Instrumenten seit 2011 einen beeindruckenden Klang, der trotz wechselnder Instrumentierung immer der Safran-Sound bleibt: Live und aus der Dose etwas zum Zuhören.
