German-based indie pop/rock band, LIONLION has just shared their new single, ‘Language’.
Centred around identical twins Michael & Matthias Rückert, their music is always visually-focused and cinematic in a minimalistic manner.
The video for ‘Language’ displays the highs and lows of the twins, and is a highly explosive, yet beautiful mixture.
Set in the ‘Haus des Volkes’, the “people’s house” and a symbol of the conflict within Germany during the Cold War, situated within the restricted zone of the inner-German border, it is the largest Bauhaus ensemble in Thuringia. Its architecture embodies functionality and thought-out design and echoes a more modernist Wes Anderson approach. In the video, this rational and clear visualisation is juxtaposed with the brothers’ emotional turmoil.
Expect their EP, ‘Rise & Fall’, to be out in October ahead of their second album ‘Perspective’, coming in spring 2020.
