Bio

Taking Berlin are a group of no good, rabble rousing delinquents that have been furiously writing and gigging since May 2012. They call their music Psychaboogie (Psychedelic grooves, Blues licks, Punk frustration, Folk storytelling and Surf vibes). Already headlining venues like The Oxford Art Factory, The Standard, Good God Small Club and The World Bar, they’ve been hailed as “surprisingly good”. Taking Berlin have already independently released a four track EP, a double A-side and a single. But that’s old news.

Our new EP titled “The Lottery" is out now through Bandcamp, iTunes, Spotify and pretty much everywhere else. It marks a new direction for the band. We are four dudes that are first and foremost music fans. Come get a beer with us. We love you. We’ve got a blanket in our bass drum if you want it. Stay classy. Xx

All the elements are here: distinguished vocal sound/clever words, you know how to construct a song and clearly there's an ear for melody too. For me, this recording sounds a bit thin, and I think you have bigger, more impactful choruses to come. All in all, this is good stuff!
