Pretty Unplugged (2021)

“… my world is locked down and I wonder, how much nothing I can take”…

2020 was the year when everything changed. But after a period of waiting, hoping, hesitating and more waiting we finally decided to end our resignation and start recording. Often our songs come to life on an acoustic guitar and then get transferred into electric realms. This time I thought “hey, this sounds good as it is, maybe I should leave it that way.

All songs written and played by Jörn Kachelriess,

Recorded at YearningRocks studio
Mixed and mastered by Stefan Busch, digital editors

America (single, 2020)

Watching the news especially during the past four years made me seriously wonder where this society is heading at. Even though this song is called America, I dare to say this concerns the entire Western world.


Recorded in September 2020 at Yearningrocks studio.
