They’ve come a long way from their humble beginnings. Formed in 2015 by Frederik Rabe (guitar/vocals), Finn Schwieters (guitar), Luca Göttner (bassist), Jonathan Wischniowski (keys) and Finn Thomas (drums). The band have toured around Northern Europe and earned themselves slots on high profile festival stages. Currently based in Berlin, the band continue to write radiant, euphoric art-pop songs with just the right touch of bittersweet sentiment.
Last year the band released their acclaimed EP, ‘Wild Stare’ which has already raked up over 50 million combined streams and cemented their status as ones to watch.
As well as releasing more new music, in 2020 the band will be hitting the road and bringing their sophisticated pop sound to stages across the continent, including 3 special headline shows in Brighton, London and Manchester. This mini-tour follows their sold out 2019 run of dates in the UK (including a sold out show at Hoxton Bar & Grill, now Colours) as well as their storming sets at the Great Escape, Y Not Festival, Kendall Calling and Neighbourhood Festival.
As if this wasn’t enough, they’re already starting to pick up awards despite not having released an album yet. Having previously received their home countries prestigious Pop Award, in November of 2019 they received another major German music award, the coveted 1-Live Krone. With more music and a stacked tour schedule, 2020 is set to be the year of Giant Rooks.
