The origin of the band saw lead singer and songwriter, Sebastian Abermann create the pseudonym and musical protagonist ’James Choice’ when moving to London to study music. It was here that he first crossed paths with future bandmate, multi-instrumentalist and co-songwriter, Michael Dey (Petrol Girls, Michael Dey, Onk Lou). Upon returning to Vienna, Sebastian concreted the band’s final lineup, including bassist, Georg Schober (KAIKO, Keiner Mag Faustmann, Maltz), guitarist, Bernd Faszl (The Liberation Service, Maltz), and drummer, Kathrin Kolleritsch (KAIKO). This melding of creative musicians and friends has proven itself to be a beautiful combination, with us releasing 2016’s energetic, self-titled EP, performing at the likes of Nova Rock, and embarking on several European tours.
In December 2017 we successfully crowdfunded to release our debut album, ‘The Something in Nothing’, reaching an incredible 119% of our goal from 140 amazing backers. In the record, we tell a story of change and development through the eyes and experiences of the protagonist, ’James Choice’. From tales of conflict, growth, friendship and family, and even the loss of a family pet, we wanted to craft an album that’s connective and emotionally wrought, as well as damn catchy. Alongside the lyrics, we’ve tried to tell the tale of James Choice with a sweeping dynamic and musical landscape, with our emotionally fuelled rhythm section, driven, melodic guitar lines, both delicate and crashing pianos, all of which strengthened by layers of harmonic vocals from all five members of the band.
The album will be released on CD, Vinyl and Digitally on 27th April 2018 via Kleio Records, and can be preordered now at http://www.smarturl.it/somethinginnothing . We’ll be launching the record at our release party at Flex Cafe, Vienna on Friday 11th May 2018. Tickets available at www.ntry.at/thesomethinginnothing
