Band Info

“Einstellung take the Krautrock simplicity of early Neu!, add the noise and dynamics of My Bloody Valentine and create something enormous that envelops your soul.” – Emma Lilley (Media Assassin/The Fly)

Birmingham based ‘Einstellung’ are Steve Hough (ex Godflesh/Cable Regime) on bass, Simon Rider (ex Grover) drums, with Andrew Parker (ex Katastrophy Wife/Sally) and Andy Smart on guitar.

The band’s debut LP, released in Australia on Chatterbox Records was has been well received:

“…the thing that sets them apart from all the other fucked up children of the world chasing the endless riff - is their inspired combination of repetition and variation. With perhaps a nod to minimal composers such as Steve Reich, the band work subtle changes (and sometimes not so subtle ones) into the music that keeps its natural velocity from turning into mere inertia.”
Adam D Mills (Drum Media, Sydney)

The debut single Sleep Easy Mr Parker has been made single of the week:
“Ah now this is soothing, one track single but hey, twenty-eight minutes, almost twenty-nine and not a moment too long (fine artwork as well). Einstellung pick you up and wash you away with their soothing warm slow building sound – this is brilliant and beautiful. Just go get it and let is take you where it wants you to go – highly highly recommended, one of the singles of the year.” Organ

Einstellung is a phrase used to describe a process of personal choice to perceive the world through ones own eyes. It is often associated with German cinematography.

Sleep Easy Mr Parker was recently played in its 28 minute entirety for the first and final time when the band appeared as part of a film evening at a Birmingham pub. It was a very special night as the band had developed projections that echo the single sleeve which were projected as they played. ‘Sleep Easy Mr Parker’ is dedicated to guitarist Andrew Parker’s father who passed away shortly before the recording. The sleeve depicts the spot on the remote Scottish Isle of Jura where Mr Parker’s now sleeps easy. It was totally unique and very special.

They may look like any other guitar band but Einstellung are capable of doing more without words and with one riff than most bands could dream off. Check them out soonstellung!
