More than two years ago we shot a session with Wintersleep playing on a freezing cold day at some urban wasteland in Vienna. The circumstances couldn’t be more different now: The five lovely Canadians are digging into boxes of vinyl when we meet them at Michelle Records after one of their three gigs at Reeperbahn Festival. It’s a pleasant September evening, and after everything is done at the venue we go for a little walk towards Hamburg’s city center. Accompanied by a bunch of fans we move past Binnenalster and Jungfernstieg and finally set up right in the heart of the city, on the steps down to Alster river in a quiet corner of Rathausmarkt. Some swans quickly approach and cast curious eyes on the scene. They witness nothing less than a stunning acoustic performance of “Nothing Is Anything (Without You)”, a melancholic love song from Wintersleep’s 2012-album “Hello Hum” with infectious vocal harmonies. The lights of the town hall sparkling in the background set the perfect ambience for this last session of our Hamburg series.
