:: Have been waiting for this album for a very long time now. So glad it’s finally here!
Children are André, Laura and Steffi from small German town Neustrelitz in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. Based in Berlin since 2008, they have known each other ever since their childhood, and they’re also making synth-pop music together for quite a while now. 2012 saw them releasing their debut EP No Future via AdP Records, and now time has finally come to debut full-length. I first saw them opening for another band a few years ago, and the minimal, delicate approach of their pop sings enchanted me at once. Children have been supporting famous German bands such as Abby, Hundreds or Me and My Drummer live, and I really hope that they will be touring with their first LP Leaving Home very soon.
Leaving Home is officially released today (September 05, 2014) via Fleet Union/Indigo. The album is available as download and CD, you can buy digitally from iTunes or order your physical copy from Amazon. Additionally, Leaving Home will also be released as 12″ vinyl LP on October 24 – pre-order your copy here.
Grace is the smooth new single and second track taken from Leaving Home. The song comes with a light and airy music video directed, shot and edited by Zach Van Hoozer of Berlin-based indie rock band Zulu Pearls. Previous single Cut is streaming below.
