Saroos at Schokoladen Berlin / Thursday, 22.09.2016
Saroos are a powerful post-rock trio releasing on the Notwist’s phenomenal Alien Transistor. Hot on the heels of their new album Tardis, Saroos return to Berlin for a special live concert at Schokoladen this September.
Berlin-Munich based trio Saroos read a lot of sci-fi, so it should comes as little surprise that the music they make sounds downright otherworldly. Florian Zimmer (Iso68, Contriva), Christoph Brandner (Lali Puna, Console) and Max Punktezahl (the Notwist, Contriva) are as much scientists as they are composers and instrumentalists — they`re obsessed with sound as particles in motion, and devoted to creating stylistic collisions that pop as much as they probe.
The group`s 2006 self-titled debut was released quietly by the Notwist`s Alien Transistor label in 2006, but the break-steeped post-rock and electronica conained therein showcased Zimmer and Brandner`s ear for Two Lone Swordsmen-meets-Slint experimentation. Anticon`s Alias even stopped by for a collaboration, on the song “During this Course”, and Punktezahl ended up joining when Saroos hit the road with his better-known band.
