Sankt Otten

    Touted by the German music press as the “German Portishead”, Sankt Otten cover a far broader ground than their English trip hop brethren. Traversing the realm of noirish cinematic pop, Sankt Otten draw inspiration from such musical inventors as - Morricone, John Barry, Talk Talk - and the modern adaptors - Portishead, Bohren und der Club of Gore, David Holmes.

    Touted by the German music press as the “German Portishead”, Sankt Otten cover a far broader ground than their English trip hop brethren. Traversing the realm of noirish cinematic pop, Sankt Otten draw inspiration from such musical inventors as - Morricone, John Barry, Talk Talk - and the modern adaptors - Portishead, Bohren und der Club of Gore, David Holmes. The band began life in Germany, 1999 and over the ensuing period released two albums on the German electronic label Eleganz Records.

    After their brilliant and wonderfully received debut on Eleganz - the 12” vinyl “Stille Tage im Klischee” (Quiet Days in the Cliché - playing with the title of Henry Miller’s studies on bored hedonism), the band followed up with the equally impressive “Eine kleine Traurigkeit” (A Small Sadness). Sankt Otten then underwent several changes: from the singer/songwriter duo to an electronic solo project, of which the Retinascan 3” remix CD-R “Zuhause fühle ich mich wie ein Tourist” (At Home I Feel Like a Tourist) pays testament to the band’s lineup of today. Despite the shifting personnel, Sankt Otten’s musical trajectory has only grown stronger with Stephan Otten, head and hands of the project, constantly direct-ing the growth and evolution of the band’s musical output. « hide
