Following the release of their third studio album All The Unknown in January 2021 Erol Sarp and Lukas Vogel - better known as the duo Grandbrothers will tour across the UK and Europe.
The LP builds on the past success of albums Dilation (2015) and Open (2017) and sees a move towards a yet more powerful iteration of the Grandbrothers sound.
Underpinning the music remains the duo’s extraordinary live setup and the basis for the pair’s “four handed” approach. Using a unique system of homemade apparatus and bespoke computer software, Grandbrothers transform the piano into a versatile, polyphonic sound source that can be operated like a giant drum machine to produce all manner of timbres. Visually arresting onstage, the arrangement has been likened to viewing “open heart surgery on a piano”, and complements the pair’s admirable showmanship. Musically All The Unknown remains energetic and hopeful - rich with a yearning that speaks as much to the listener's heart as it does to their feet - but as ever it’s in the live setting that Sarp and Vogel’s craft really shines.
Beginning life in 2012 as a project centered around a modified piano that combined innate musicality with homemade mechanics, Grandbrothers’ raison d’etre remains the same - an emotive celebration of influence spanning dance music, contemporary hip hop, classical composition & more.
The tour extends across October and November, featuring appearances at Islington Assembly Hall in London, National Concert Hall in Dublin and Barcelona's Razzmatazz.
