Lea Porcelain

PODCAST / FEATURE | 08.05.2019

Lea Porcelain

Some albums come to you at the perfect moment. Last year, just when winter had arrived I was sitting on the train, travelling back to Hamburg after an emotional encounter. Staring out of the window and the already white landscape, Lea Porcelain’s debut album "Hymns to the night" caught me.
Their sound is the result of Markus’ strong and expressive voice and Julien’s beautiful soundscapes.

We met one sunny day at the Funkhaus in Berlin to talk about their first encounter at the Robert Johnson Club, the energy at the night, music in skate videos and of course their new song “I am Ok”.
