BAND PROFILE

Through film, art, storybooks and music the Berlin-based rock band Substereo immerse you in their journey. Be it in a world of pirates in search of a mysterious treasure, or in the company of a lonely little robot trying to save its dying world, the four-piece band blurs the line between reality and fiction.

Originally from Copenhagen, the band made its debut with the album Fuel for the Revolution (2013), produced by multi-platinum award winning producer Dito Godwin.
After numerous concerts and performances in Scandinavia and Europe, the band followed the success of the first album by releasing the self-produced concept album Nowhereland in 2016, which was based on and accompanied by a novelette written and illustrated by frontman Chris Angel Walker.

The band experienced a kind of re-birth in 2018 with a renewed lineup in Berlin, and got ready for the next chapter of its story. With influences such as Pink Floyd, The Foo Fighters and John Mayer, Chris Angel Walker, Robin Schulte, Baptiste Watiez and Nic Edinger pulled together their strengths and created yet another project, which doesn’t simply focus on the individual songs, but incorporates a holistic approach with art, story-telling, and a five-part stop-motion short film, which will transport you to another world!

In 2020, after countless hours of hard work, they will unveil the Renaissance Series, a project into which they have poured their hearts and souls. So strap yourself in and keep your seat in the upright position... You are about to go on an adventure!

CURRENT RELEASE   Press release


PART 1 - OVER & OVER  Release Date: 07.JAN.2020

In the song ‘Over & Over’ Substereo explores a state of affairs where the sense of loss is ultimately overcome by hope through love.
'Over & Over' is the first song from the five-part audiovisual series. The concept is neither a collection of ‘singles’, nor is it an 'EP' in the traditional sense of the word. Rather, it is a musical ‘series’ where each song functions more like a chapter in a tale.
The story is portrayed through the lyrical content as well as through a stop-motion music video series where all five songs are interconnected by one continuous storyline, which follows a single surviving robot through his struggles to escape the inevitable end of the earth.

In the 'Over & Over' video the robot escapes a dying earth. He leaves on his spaceship carrying three seeds given to him by his little girl. He plants the seeds on the planet that becomes his new home, and the flowers rekindle his love and hope. However, danger is lurking just over the horizon.
