by heart. – A Phenomenon

live at Kalkscheune

A few weeks ago I came across a live playing rock band called “by heart.” at Alexanderplatz. It’s not that spectacular on the first look, but the interesting and surprising point is that these guys from Stockholm, Sweden, were making unbelievable good music. If you live in Berlin it’s the last thing you expect.. A little bit Coldplay mixed with U2 and a dash REM. In fact about 150 people listend, almost half of the crowd stayed the whole set which took 30 mins. Afterwards the band sold cd’s and they sold a lot. Unfortunately i missed to get one… the next days i couldn’t get the songs out of my mind but couldn’t find anything at Dussmann published by “by heart.”.

On sunday it happend. Finally, I saw the band again in accident. Live playing at Mauerpark, an audience of almost 500 people listining. I got the second chance to buy one and i did it. The album “Exit Signs” is a great and fantastic cd, i have to admit it’s maybe in my alltime favorites. The very friendly drummer of by heart told me afer the concert that they sold til now over 17,000 copies of their self-recorded and self-produced demos. So, if anyone of you out there comes along a live playing rock band in Berlin – check them out and get your own copy of “Exit Signs”, I highly recommend that!
To get a first impression you should visit the homepage of the Swedish band (or take a look here). On march 27th they play live at 103 club in Falckensteinstrasse, you shouldn’t miss. Really, I don’t know, when i was so impressed by a band the last time. If you wanna join the showcase you should take the chance and sign up quick for the guestlist and you’ll pay half the price – 3 euro…
I’ll be there, what about you?
