“…stereofysh is a fresh project by the siblings gunnar (electronics) and lysann zander (vox) who literally have been making music together their whole lives: acoustic, electronic, in the depths of soul and jazz, or in the wide world of the dance floor. stereofysh are interplay and compromise, counter pole and unity. and lars dieterich (reeds) knows exactly how to play the game: with tasteful and cheeky clarinets, flutes, and saxophone.
stereofysh live performances allow the audience to become part of their family affairs: without artificial distance, playful in the expression of their music, always developing in close touch with the audience, kind and powerful.
with their debut ep wannado, stereofysh offered a piece of music that sounds like a mixture of house, dub, jazz, and pop may sound: beautiful and different, familiar and original at the same time. in their latest ep ZANDERDOME stereofysh have cultivated their lust for experiments and a “we do as we please” attitude that just keeps us more than curious …”
Stereofysh are a brand new act from Berlin and were this Thursday’s EB On Air stars. At the heart of the project is brother and sister Gunnar and Lysann Zander (Zander is a fish, geddit?). Drawing on their deep rooted familiar connection, they take in acoustic and electronic processes and experiment with ideas of interplay, compromise and counterpoint. Put it simply, as Stereofysh they make intuitive, expressive pop music with clear nods to dub, jazz, house and embellished with sax and flute courtesy of third (non-family) member Lars Dieterich. Their latest EP ‘Zanderdome’, out on Lebensfreude last month, saw them refine their vision further without losing their exploratory approach.

Egal, wie dreist das Sample ist, hier schafft es endlich mal jemand, ein poppig zentrales Moment so zu bearbeiten, dass es eben wirklich etwas eigenes ist, nicht einfach ein Hitsample für die Openairsaison. Die EP ist in ihrer ausgelassen heiteren Stimmung ebenso lässig und kennt sogar leicht bootige und überdreht dubbige Momente. Sehr schöne, extrem vielseitige EP, die dennoch immer diese sonnendurchflutete Stimmung bewahrt.
