At its core, Grandbrothers’ music represents a communion between the old and the new.

 

On their extraordinary new album Late Reflections, the German-Swiss duo place their art in communion with an institution so old it predates their music by seven centuries: Cologne Cathedral. The iconic monument of Gothic architecture, which is both a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Germany’s most visited landmark, served as an unorthodox recording studio for Grandbrothers’ fourth album, marking the only time the Cathedral has ever permit- ted a recording of this kind. The resulting album pulses with a rare sense of history and archi- tecture, allowing the spatial properties of this magnificent building to shape and deepen the timbre of the duo’s swelling compositions.

 

Grandbrothers have made a career out of spurning tradition. Formed in Düsseldorf, Germany, more than a decade ago, the piano duo creates richly textured music that straddles the boundaries between ambient, minimalism, and electronica.
