iwantpoetry solaceBehind the name I WANT POETRY are singer / songwriter Tine von Bergen and pianist / composer Till Moritz Moll. With their visually powerful signature mix of atmospheric Dream Pop, mental cinematic soundscapes and ethereal, floating vocals, the duo, founded in 2018, quickly developed from an insider tip to a fixture within the German Indietronica scene. I WANT POETRY invite their fans on their tracks to atmospheric thought trips between the sound worlds.

Last year they caused a sensation with their debut album ‘Human Touch’. “... and above all lies the intoxicating trendlessness of one’s own style; a fine elegance that one knows from really great Pop connoisseurs like TEARS FOR FEARS or WOODKID.”, writes the Freie Presse.

Their new EP ‘Solace’ is the forerunner of their second album ‘Solace+Light’, which is expected next winter. I WANT POETRY combine existential themes such as farewell and new beginnings, grief and consolation, retrospect and confidence into a total work of art with which the duo impressively cements its status as one of the most exciting bands in temporary Pop music. It is an eternal interplay of warm nostalgia, an undercooled elegance and a light-flooded glimmer of hope that runs like a red thread through the new songs.

“Where are the times we shared
the nights, the sound, the air
I was reading de Beauvoir
you were writing songs on your guitar”

sings Tine in ‘Tongue’. With swirling retro sounds and dreamy Rhodes chords, the song is like a mental road trip back to when we were young, to a time of wonder and excitement, to a time of beginnings.

“With ‘Solace+Light’ we look into ourselves and back to our former selves. What remains of us? What do we take with us and what do we leave behind? What gives us hope and where do we draw strength from?” says Till Moritz Moll, “We also wanted to capture this reminiscence in the sounds - and literally rummaged through memories. For example, we came across an old Casio pocket synthesizer that my grandfather used to own. It’s in the song now ‘Tongue’ immortalized.”

I WANT POETRY work together with internationally renowned acts and producers such as Kieron Menzies (LANA DEL REY), Roy Kerr aka MyRiot (LONDON GRAMMAR, AURORA), Rob Rox (BANKS) and Michael Vajna (MALKY). They are winners of the Popmusik Sachsen 2022 competition and have been nominated with ‘Tongue’ for the European Songwriting Awards 2022 in the category ‘Best Pop Song’.

‘Solace’ will be available on all music platforms on May 20th, the atmospheric music video for ‘Tongue’ by Kristin Herziger will be presented on May 24th. Fans can buy a hand-numbered version of the EP on CD, limited to 100 copies, directly from the band and exclusively at the concerts.
