Dilation, the divine debut album from German duo Grandbrothers, came out earlier this year. With the grand piano as their core link, Erol Sarp and Lukas Vogel ally their classical training and technical wizardry on the piano to craft each song on the album in a singular way.
“We use a system of self-built hammers that trigger all parts (metal, wood, strings) of the grand piano in order to create all the sounds you hear including percussions”, explained the pair. “On stage that looks like an open heart surgery on the grand piano with a lot of cables attached.” They are offering a glimpse into these mechanical hammers, with their new video for the incredible album track ‘Arctica’. The video was made by Warped Type and you can watch it now.
