Berlin-based two piece Lea Porcelain make a stellar entrance into 2019 with “ I Am Ok”, the first cut is taken from their upcoming EP, set for release 21st June.
“I Am OK” is a brooding and tender number, carrying with it a message of positive assurance that things will be okay, even when you feel at your lowest. Speaking on the release, the band state:
“The song describes a time in everybody’s life that make you lose faith in yourself, in someone else or in life itself and you just need to hear from someone that one day everything will be ok again. That no matter what, with time and patience we all will be ok.”
A more stripped back release than its predecessors, ‘I Am Ok’ delivers its message with the help of just vocals, bass and ukulele. Built on the atmospheric walls of sound and cinematic beauty that Julien Bracht and Markus Nicolaus have developed a reputation for, the track serves as another example of their unique chemistry. Meeting by chance at a nightclub 6 years ago in Frankfurt, Lea Porcelain have gone from strength to strength and “ I Am OK” serves as a statement of intent on what is set to be a big year for the duo.
Lea Porcelain have toured for a year and a half since releasing their debut album ‘Hymns to the Nights’ in 2017. Championed by the likes of Stereogum, The 405, Clash, Wonderland and many more, the welcomed return looks to be full of prosperous.
In April they are back on the road to tour around Europe (all dates below) and they will also be adding further shows to look forward to in the summer. Look out for more from Lea Porcelain soon.
