Track Of The Day :: Lea Porcelain - A Year From Here
Words: Linn Branson
We had our first taste of Frankfurt electronic duo Lea Porcelain back in February when they emerged as a semi-'mystery' band with their debut 'Similar Familiar'. Well, at least, they were - until Little Indie were first to enlighten you as to who the pair behind the Porcelain veneer were!
Now the duo, Julien Bracht and Markus Nikolaus, have just released ‘A Year From Here’, taken from their self-titled debut EP, out on November 6. And this is a really cool ear-grabber of a song - and not just for the use of a ukulele, but soaring strings and synth-like laid-back percussion all add to make it something a bit special that stands apart from probably any other track you'll hear this week.
The band say of the song: "As humans we tend to romanticize experience, hovering in nostalgia and we therefore often fall into this gentle melancholy of remembrance. The song is about not shedding tears trying to recall the past, but to realise the beauty of the present."
