It is a wondrous nostalgia that surrounds the young duo Spoon and the Forkestra consisting of a girl from Hamburg and a boy from Mannheim.
Timo Zell’s delicate bass lines gently dance around the fragile yet powerful voice of Emily-Mae Lewis who seems to be whispering her metaphorical stories directly into their listeners’ ears. Folky elements meet psychedelic melancholia, the freedom of Punk encounters the sensuality of Jazz and Soul music. We are experiencing a musical embrace – both slightly beautiful and a little gnawing at the same time; a reverberating kind of intensity stimulating awareness for the long-gone.
When on stage, Spoon and the Forkestra turn it into a playroom – as the two of them or along with drummer John Winston Berta as a trio. They musically elevate themselves to the highest spheres just to make everything fall into shivering silence in an instant.
On April 24th, 2020 Spoon and the Forkestra released their first single Mosquitoes, a song about the rising internal volume in lonely nights. The release is accompanied by a video project for which the band called on friends and family to film themselves in moments of insomnia. The resulting collage picks up on the intimacy and calm of the song. Mosquitoes is the first of four singles that Spoon and the Forkestra release this year before their debut EP comes out in December.
