PRESS QUOTES english

“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

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

of extreme beauty.” – In Viaggio, Italy
