Fronted by joni samuels’ snarling guitar and backed by karsten van der tol’s thundering drums, fräulein create an explosive sound which can be found across london and bristol venues. but the biggest weapon in their arsenal is joni’s intricate melodies, combining sharply observational lyrics with surrealist imagery. the duo are inspired by the wide range of genres they take in, ranging from trip-hop to grunge to latin.
With karsten hailing from the netherlands and joni from northern ireland, they coincidentally met at a friend’s jam night in 2018, where the pair instantly connected on a rhythmic level. since then, they’ve gone on to play shows in venues such as The Windmill and Old Blue Last, been featured in DIY Magazine, Get In Her Ears, Loud Women and more, and gotten the seal of approval from BBC Radio 1’s own daniel p. carter (The Rock Show).
Having spent the better part of lockdown in a studio in bristol, fräulein's newest single 'belly' is out now via Practise Music.Source [Spotify]
