Scratches - Before Beyond // new album to be released in the beginning of 2017
We proudly announce that we will release SCRATCHES new album BEFORE BEYOND in the beginning of next year.
Release Switzerland January 21st / International release February 10th.
With their second album «Before Beyond» Scratches go a step further: Written in September 2015 at an old country estate in Brandenburg, the album was recorded by Timo Keller (Hanreti – Studio Vom Dach, Luzern) and Jonas Prina (Tonatelier Ziegelei, Basel) and coproduced, mixed and mastered by Darren Hayne (Shirley Grimes, uva). The ten new songs capture their well-known austere beauty but bring the sound aesthetic to yet another level. Avantgarde pop, melancholic wave, mystic blues? Even though Scratches are still operating pretty far off the beaten tracks of pop- and rockmusic, «Before Beyond» seems to be drawn to the light and the big stage much more than its predecessor.
The video for Scratches' new magnificent single Beautiful has been premiered by Ron Orp today. Check it out on Youtube.
