|LEBANON HANOVER Besides The Abyss CD
Lebanon Hanover is a British (William Morris) / Swiss/Greek (Larissa Iceglass) duo constituted between Berlin and England in July 2010. Very influenced by the darker side of the 80s they decided to stand up and disapprove with the high-pitched overproduced music that peaks in your ears, to stick to pure minmal electronics instead. After some of their tracks appearing on compilations and tapes, they released a first (vinyl only) album on Fabrika Records (Greece) in February 2012. After a longer stay in Berlin, Lebanon Hanover moved back to the more primitive surroundings of the North-East of England around that period of time. This album reflects a process of musical maturing and self-knowledge, though inward-looking and intimate, it has no difficulties entering deep into the emotional world of the listener. Dominated by the voice of Larissa Iceglass, which embraces us like an unknown warmth coming straight from the blackest abyss, the elegance of the guitar parts, the sad bass and synthesizer melodies, the poetic tenderness of the lyrics, this album is of unique and gloomy romance… The album consists of ten new recordings on Vinyl and eleven on this CD edition. It has been written and recorded by Larissa and William in Athens.
