When people speak about real chart topping bands we think America , the western world and the likes of Nirvana, which often is not the case when we think of Legendary bands like “The Beatles ” and John Lennon which made the world take note that there are other big fish in the sea , by achieving awards and recognition’s even tho being thousands of miles from the United states of America . The Grammy Awards are awarded annually by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences in the United States. The Beatles have received seven competitive awards out of 23 nominations. In addition, they received the Lifetime Achievement award in 2014. These sort of accolades makes one take note what is happening and the ongoing revolution of music taking place in not on England but Europe as a whole as well . This brought my attention to a band “Roosevelt” from Germany.
Who is Roosevelt?!
Who is Roosevelt you may ask! Roosevelt (born Marius Lauber in September 1990) is a German singer, songwriter and producer from Viersen . His first project was Beat!Beat!Beat!, an indie teenage band where he was the drummer. Years later the band separated and he became a soloist. He then released his acclaimed debut EP ‘Elliot’ in 2013.
The lead single ‘Elliot’ was named as Pitchfork’s ‘Best New Track’ . Roosevelt then released the double-A side ‘Night Moves/Hold On’ in 2015 on Greco-Roman which continued a warm synth-pop, Balearic-influenced sound.
In April 2016, he announced his self-titled debut album, set for release on August 19, 2016 on Greco-Roman/City Slang, with the video for tracks “Colours” and “Moving On” .
What does Roosevelt sound like ?!
