ÄTSCH perform instrumental music in the spirit of exciting jazz improvisation within the sound aesthetics of modern-day Postrock. The band merge lyrical melodies with strong individual solo performances always striving to find the right balance between atmospheric soundscapes and exciting improvisation. Their influences include Postrock musicians such as Sigur Rós or Explosions in the Sky, as well as contemporary Jazz artists like Gilad Hekselman and Julian Lage.
Their debut EP, recorded in 2017, displays their melodic sensibility for catchy tunes as well as the ongoing musical dialogue that prevails between the musicians, allowing each artist to put their individual stamp on each recording.
ÄTSCH's unique appeal comes from their ability to combine modern sounds & melodies with strong individual and collective improvisations.
