Title
Art arises from magical relationships. From exchange and friction. The Hamburg musicians Meike Schrader and Agata Paulina Clasen are each other's anchor and drive. With their band SCHWESTER, they will release their debut album "Der Himmel fällt" in the fall of 2022. German-language indiefolkpop, recorded together with producer Gregor Henning as artistic accomplice at Studio Nord in Bremen. Engaging and elbowing, harmonious and urgent, rich in detail and in love with sound. Two artists at eye level. Clearly feminist and willing to be as open as possible. Meike Schrader plays piano and keyboards, Agata Paulina Clasen the guitar. Both sing with great truthfulness.

SCHWESTER explores all that is loving and rugged, poetic and political, unsaid and omnipresent that makes up our lives. 'Paulina brings an insane amount of movement to the artistic process,' says Meike Schrader. 'And Meike, in turn, creates a framework, she sorts the confetti,' Agata Paulina Clasen tells us. SCHWESTER is like an inspiring identity that they both mutually invent. Together they are driven by an immense curiosity. And by a basic trust in each other. Even if it can sometimes be painful to want to penetrate things the way SCHWESTER does.

Being vulnerable and resilient, setting boundaries and losing ground, grounding oneself and reaching for the sky, finding balance and embracing otherness - SCHWESTER touches on extremely timely topics. But not in the advice-giving mode, but in a language that immediately pulls at the soul. Two women, two biographies, two temperaments. A dynamic that is far more than the sum of its parts. As if a character of its own were developing. A force. A companion. A sister.
