Pauline Andres’s music is being described as ”Liquor soaked alt-country made in Berlin”, Born in France, Pauline Andrès plays guitar and writes stories about drunks, working men and hipsters, even if she admits knowing less about the latter. She sings about hangovers, the hunt for a home, Russian fairytales and sometimes murders too. Born in a French minors town on the border in a mixed family, long trips across Europe were part of growing up. Listening to rock and country music too. “I’ve always related to Southern US music just as much as French accordion. It’s a shame we didn’t have something similar to Blues and Country here when all the men used to work in the mine… or even once they all got laid off”.
In 2012, she settled down in Berlin after much roaming and started working with other musicians in town and recently started gigging between Kreuzberg and Neukölln. We received couple of demos and we really dig her dramatic Marlene Dietrich voice and Nick Cave‘s dark story telling ballads. Check out her demo ‘Highway-landscapes’.
