Bio
Two years following their debut album MONSTERPROOF, DIVISION KENT are back with GRAVITY.

The new album is named after a track that turned into what it is by a series of coincidences and accidents: a beat that fuses with electronic sounds; a voice that dives abruptly one night; two song sketches which amalgamate.

„GRAVITY is dark with colour“, is how Andrea B. describes the 11 songs. A fictional trip through a real setting, cinematic moods and the stardust of pop culture. Moments before they blur from the urge to be everywhere and nowhere – sometimes “upbeat?, sometimes “zen?, but always completely lucid.

Whereas the first album largely emerged in musical togetherness at the corner of Division Avenue/Kent Avenue in industrialised Brooklyn – DIVISION KENT sought the collaboration of soul mates this time round.

Peter Scherer, musician, composer and producer, who co-shaped the New York music scene during the past 25 years, produced two of the songs. During the course of his career, he regularly surpassed genre borders and cooperated with experimental artists such as Laurie Anderson, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Amedeo Pace/Blonde Redhead, David Byrne/Talking Heads. He introduced DIVISION KENT to Peter Schmidt (Beatsteaks, Klee) in Berlin, in whose Ballsaal-Studio a major portion of the album was mixed. Peter Schmidt mediated a contact to his companion Gareth Jones (Depeche Mode, Interpol, Indochine, Nick Cave) – a pioneer since the beginning of the 80s when it comes to the amalgamation of electronic music with guitar sounds as well as balancing the atmosphere, noise and beauty of a melody.
