Germein releases new single "Suitcase" + UK tour
Aussie alt country pop band Germein made up of three sisters Georgia (guitar, keys), Ella (bass, electric cello) & Clara Germein (drums) release their brand new single ‘Suitcase’ on 21st April, just ahead of their performances at The Great Escape in Brighton this May. These shows follow their debut USA performances at SXSW.
The siblings wrote, recorded & produced ‘Suitcase’ themselves at their home studio in the Adelaide Hills, the track’s earthy tones deepened with edgy guitars, percussive drums, soaring vocals are topped off with their iconic sibling harmonies.
Whether it’s jamming together on their family farm in South Australia, opening stadium shows for Little Mix & Jess Glynne, or headlining the Big Top at the Isle of Wight Festival, Germein’s energetic and charismatic live performances have been described as nothing short of mesmerising.
"I wrote Suitcase about those heartbreaking moments when you have to leave someone you love, but all you really want is to take them with you. I really wanted to emphasize that feeling of packing up and leaving, so I recorded samples of a real suitcase - like the sound of locking it and throwing it on the ground – to add that extra layer.” GEORGIA GERMEIN
Following Great Escape, the band will perform at Tunes in the Dunes Festival in Cornwall (James Bay, Kaiser Chiefs), Isle of Wight Festival (George Ezra, Robbie Williams), & Lytham Festival (Sting, Blondie). They have also been announced as the support for Tom Jones, Sharon Corr, Skye Christy, Arno Carstens this summer, as well as The Corrs Australian & New Zealand Tour later in the year.
Taking the lead from strong female artists like HAIM, Chvrches, and Tegan & Sara, Germein possess the kind of close musical partnership that can only be shared by siblings. They are inspired by the vocal harmonies of iconic bands such as Queen and Fleetwood Mac, both of whom they have been honoured to previously appear with on the line-up at the Isle of Wight Festival.
Their single ‘Good For A Girl’ was recently announced a 3rd place winner in the International Songwriting Competition for Best Unsigned Artist, and Honourable Mention for Best Lyrics, out of 21,000 entries worldwide.They were also shortlisted in the Top 6 Unsigned UK Acts in a Battle of the Bands competition to open for Ed Sheeran. 2023 sees no sign of slowing down for the illustrious trio.
So don't miss the chance to catch them live.
