Felix Martin of Hot Chip picked their debut album’s title track ‘I Want To See Everything’ in the effort to highlight “the yearning undertone of the song with twinkling sounds”. The mantra-like expressed “wish to explore and understand the world” just becomes more mesmerizing.
“Ich möchte alles sehen” – “I want to see everything”
“Je veux tout voir” – “I Want To See Everything”
The single was playlisted by BBC Radio 6 Music last year. When Sparkling’s debut album was released their reputation as one oft he most exciting newcomers was not only established in German-speaking territories, but also far beyond that: In addition to DLF Nova, FM4, BR Puls or Musikexpress notable radio hosts like Steve Lamacq (BBC Radio 6 Music), Annie Mac (BBC Radio 1) oder Matt Wilkinson (Beats 1) supported their music. Jack Saunders of the BBC Radio 1 Indie Show even invited them to play a session at the legendary Maida Vale Studios, this year they were also set to play – amongst others – at the cancelled showcase festivals SXSW (Austin, Texas) and The Great Escape (Brighton, England).
Brothers Leon and Levin Krasel, plus Luca Schüten, man the helm of the ship named Sparkling. They released their multilingual debut album ‘I Want To See Everything’ in 2019, co-produced by Andy Ramsay (Stereolab), and it is a critical form of excellence that is both distinct and invigorating. From synth laden singles to indie-rock infused bops and to experimental sizzles, the trio makes music that hits the spot, once and always. Their multilingual album enables the three boys from Cologne to do exactly that. In the universal language of pop, it transcends featured languages German, English and French.
