'Where The Wild Oceans End'

“Where The Wild Oceans End is all of this: the work of a great singer and songwriter... sensual, elegant, elegiac.”
-
Musikexpress (5/5)

“Sparkle, depth, beauty: the fascinating Berliner counteracts the enchanted desolation of her lyrics with warm vocals … an aura, a pale glow around a voice in the dark night that can float surely and beautifully above the wildest waters.”
-
Rolling Stone (4/5)

“Andrea Schroeder illuminates the gloom with torches... a nocturnal journey to the edge of the capital.”
-
Spiegel Online

“Where The Wild Oceans End, once again, defies simple classification – this is making it so interesting that more and more critics and fans are taking notice.”
-
Zeit online

“A big slice of bitter-sweet Velvet Underground pie”
-
Melodie & Rhythmus (8/10)

“There is a hint of 60's Parisian “chanson-noir” here as well as cool Velvet Underground aesthetics and the glamour of David Bowie. Schroeder's heavy contralto draws the listener deep into an atmosphere of dark yearning. The guitars are empowered with this electrifying force and the arrangements with the allure of its silence: excellent! -
AUDIO (4.5/5)

“Andrea Schroeder lures us into the shallows and abysses of the soul.” - radio eins RBB
(CD of the week)

The aura of a Marlene Dietrich of pop-noir... An album whose sinister elegance will echo for some time to come.”
-
Kulturnews (4/6)

“A poet of the beautiful as well as the ominous... dark sparkling details in her magnificent songs. Inspiring.” - Sonic Seducer

“Andrea Schroeder is approaching a breakthrough. Her second album of atmospheric folk-rock and dark chansons justify great expectations.” -
Stern.de

“Enormous quality... fascinating songs somewhere between decelerated folk-rock and bluesy ballads.” -
Focus.de

“... Schroeder's expansive sound touches urban, asphalt concepts perfectly. Interestingly, one can also recognise a few ghosts of Berlin; from the elegantly jaded Lou Reed to the feverish blues of Nick Cave in the mid-80s and to David Bowie.” -
Berliner Zeitung

“It's not often that the blood freezes in the veins so beautifully... a sensual celebration.”
Tip Berlin

“ A common name but not common music.” -
DIE WELT

Andrea Schroeder – Where The Wild Oceans End

The album "Where The Wild Oceans End"
CD and Vinyl (+CD) and digital
released 31th Januar 2014 on Glitterhouse Records

Once in a while, Germany offers uniquely talented female singers, and Andrea is one of those. Draw yourself a line from Marlene Dietrich over to Nico, add some dashes Chamber Pop in the vein of The Tindersticks to it and you come close. Discovered and loved by such illustrious people like Charles Plymell or Mike Watt, Andrea Schroeder is such an exceptional phenomenon. She's a musical poetess, with an outstanding voice that is as fascinating as her thrilling and melancholic lyrics. „Where The Wild Oceans End“ is Andrea's second album produced by Chris Eckman (The Walkabouts, Tamikrest, Midnight Choir) and analogue recorded at the Ocean Sound Recording Studios, Norway very close to the Atlantic coast. If you compare her forthcoming release to the critical acclaimed debut album „Blackbird“ you must admit that she has taken the next big step. Andrea Schroeder and her band, including Danish guitarist and songwriting partner Jesper Lehmkuhl (Farmen), have made an unbelievable progression since releasing „Blackbird“ on Glitterhouse Records in 2012. Focussing on her seductive but threatening voice and the charateristic melancholic storys Andrea's musical vision is still growing. „Where The Wild Oceans End“ is an album as it was made from one piece: it leaves its marks but inspires your soul and ends in deepest satisfaction. (Glitterhouse Records)

The band:
Andrea Schroeder (Vocals, harmonium)
Jesper Lehnkuhl (Guitars)
Dave Allen (Bass)
Chris Hughes (Drums)
Catherine Graindorge (Violin)
