«It was so beautiful …» sings a deep female voice accompanied by hypnotic sounds, mystic blues and cinematic soundscapes. It’s a sound that makes your blood run cold while simultaneously sending comforting shivers down your spine. Just as if Nick Cave became one with his female duet partners from «Murder Ballads» – a kind of symbioses of man and woman reciting songs about the dark sides of the human soul and the lightness of being. A melancolic soundtrack, in the manner of Enrico Morricone, a soundtrack to an inner movie about raptures, scars and blank spaces, about fading, remembrance and longing unfolds before our ears: Welcome to the universe of «Scratches» ladies and gentlemen. (Text by Steffi Klär)
We are proud to welcome Scratches in our roster. We're looking forward to release their new single by end of October and their new album "Before Beyond" in the beginning of 2017. Have a listen to their previous full-length "Fade" on bandcamp:
