Rauschenberg are a psych rock band from Bristol
Rauschenberg's self-titled debut is a rock n' roll record you can dance to. The album features a collection of dream pop and garage songs along with longer spaced out motorik grooves.
Rauschenberg return following a line-up change with new material that continues to be highly melodic and danceable all delivered with the usual dark rock n roll world-view.
Rauschenberg have played shows with Wolf People, Vacant Lots, Carlton Melton, The Telescopes and Hawklords. Check out the bands soundcloud featuring new material. For a current live schedule, videos, photos etc please visit.
The album draws motorik post-punk, psychedelic noise rock and muddy shoegaze vibes from the bands predecessors and processes the best parts into a full lengh trip. Think Spacemen 3, MC5, Ride or New Fads. It’s even possibleto catch the fleeting glimmer of Britpop hiding beneath the murky reverberations of ‘Ohio Wires’ The album does a great job of standing out amidst a veritable history of rock n roll.
Harriet Taylor – Bristol Live
Shoun Shoun’s (Shoun rhymes with moon) expansive sound blends dream pop and garage rock with the urban ennui of Dietrich and the Velvets. The band's urgent grooves are laced with conspiratorial vocals and lysergic flurries of violin and synth.
After years of battling ferocious noise, Annette Berlin (Big Joan, Male, The Final Age) felt an uncontrollable urge to connect in a more intimate way. She called time on existing projects and wrote prolifically: songs of alienation, redemption and the emptiness at the end of the party.
Bringing the songs to dramatic life are musicians whose collective CV includes Bristol greats like The Moonflowers, Mooz, Patrick Duff and Chikinki.
Their debut EP was released January 2019 on Praise The Loud.
They won the Glastonbury FM songwriting competition 2019.
"Annette's songs evoke a Siouxsie and the Banshees feel, bringing back memories of Happy House and Hong Kong Garden, but with her own sublime guitar sound. Could Annette's songs reach such success? I would stick my steely Sheffield neck out and say yes, I feel that they can."
“... our radar had caught something good. To be honest, something very good.”
“You’ve got a very, very good sound!”
