Lo-Fi Store

Infant Finches play oblique music that catches you off guard, carelessly balancing between straight forms and cryptic motives. The duo offer complex yet direct music that brings together polyrhythmic structures, noise and clear melodies in a song like form. An ongoing sense of naivitet carries the listener through abrupt surprises while bearing a transcendental mind at it’s core.
Written, performanced and produced by Jan Philipp and Frederik Bruun, the duo have a discographie of two EP’s entitled Yellow Tape (2019) and Orange Tape (2020) to date. The two band members met each other in the contemporary music scene in Copenhagen Denmark and shortly thereafter formed Infant Finches. The band’s self released EP Yellow Tape consists of the first four songs they wrote together under the concept “first thought, best thought”. It was conceived over a two month period in a basement rehearsal space and self-released on Bandcamp. It was later picked up and re-released by the record label Papercup Records, who also brought out Orange Tape, their sophomore EP. Orange Tape pushed the central ideas of the debut Yellow Tape further, while implementing unorthodox compositions and long instrumentals an containing an intuitive and joyful core. With similar aesthetics to inspirations such as The Beatles, This Heat, Dirty Projectors and Stereolab, Infant Finches excuses these by twisting and turning the music into a new domain.
Following these releases last year, Infant Finches scheduled concerts around Germany and Europe. Despite the pandemic, they were luckily enough to be able to play a handful of these shows scheduled in Germany and Denmark (c / o Pop Festival - Stream, Staatstheater Darmstadt for Bedroom Disco, Bumann & Sohn, Det Gyldne Liv - Stream etc.).
Spring 2022 will see the release of their first full length album which is recorded and produced with the acclaimed producer Olaf Opal (The Notwist, International Music, Düsseldorf Düsterboys) and is supported by Initiative Musik. This will be followed by an intense tour as both duo and quartet constellation.

The concert by Infant Finches will take place as part of the project "c/o pop Nachwuchs NRW 2022", funded by the Ministry of Culture and Science of the State of NRW.
