Via the NBHAP Introducing event series NBHAP and MELT! Booking introduce you to exciting new acts. In return some of these artists would like to introduce you to something that's closer to their heart. We don't set any rules on what it could be. In the case of German pop newcomer Novaa it's an almost forgotten movie from the 1990s.
What does the homestead of 2018's Way Back When Festival have to offer? NBHAP editor Igor asked local band Walking On Rivers and photographer Nicole Stieben to show him around the still way too underrated city.
Does a broken heart heal easier with a certain age? Probably not. But there are other aspects that help to set things in perspective. The beloved bearded songwriter knows a thing or two about that issue and now has to face it again on his upcoming album, almost exactly ten years after the last time. Time for a reflection about the past, present and maybe also the future.
What sounds like a smooth ride on the highway is actually coming from a way different area of this planet. The two German brothers in spirit deliver a lovely hidden gem with their sophomore full-length.
What comes after the hype? The next one, the drop into vacuity or just life, how is happens? Salves’ third record is all about taking the next step. Away from their known version of furious two-man alternative punk to a band with ambitions and unheard musicality.
We were very excited to be attending the event for the first time this year, together with the likes of Gorillaz, Kendrick Lamar, and Richie Hawtin performing, so we sent editor Adam Turner-Heffer out to see what all the fuss was about.
