Mark Bérubé & Kristina Koropecki
Samstag 20:30 Uhr
… zuletzt waren Kliffs im Schlachthof als Vorprogramm von Sophie Hunger zu sehen und zu hören – zu uns kommen sie, weil wir sie und sie uns mögen – einfach toll und unbedingt empfehlenswert!
Kliffs is the Berlin-based duo of Mark Bérubé (Canadian/Swiss; guitar, keys, voice) and Kristina Koropecki (Canadian; cello, synths, voice). The two met ten years ago in an improvised Montréal rehearsal space when Kristina joined Mark’s solo project. The two toured together with Mark’s band numerous times across Canada and Europe, and eventually re-located to Berlin, Germany in 2014. After a brief hiatus for other projects, the two teamed up again in 2018 as a duo under their new name.
Kliffs write recycled tone poems for the perpetually bemused, and pop songs for shy dancers. They channel the quiet of early morning sun rays tickling cloud banks and mix it up with songs better suited to late-night inner city bicycle rides.
Kliffs are seasoned and skilled musicians and have acquired the craft of joining their instruments and their voices together to form a delicate balance in their songs. Koropecki’s classical music training and her boundless curiosity for all new sounds perfectly compliment Bérubé’s reverence of time-honoured song-craft where lyrics take centre-stage.
Their first EP Kliffs E.P. came out on April 5th, 2019 with Two Gentlemen Records (Switzerland/World) and K&F Records (Germany). Their new album "Termpoary Cures" will be out on November 29th, 2019.
