Half-Swiss, half-German band, Gran Noir follow on from their successful album ‘Electronic Eyes’, with new single ‘On And On’. Listen here

The band worked in the Alterna Recording Studios in Basel with an old friend and companion, Philippe Laffer (Supernova, Zhivago), an expert on buttons and controls (Crimer, Kaufmann, One.Sentence.Superviser, Panda Lux) to venture into new territory.

Despite the sombre theme of ‘On And On’, more than a spark of hope shimmers in wonderfully arranged guitar, violin and vocals. ‘On And On’ keeps its promise: Gran Noir didn’t let themselves be pulled down, didn’t give up, persevered, set the focus anew and have emerged stronger from this pivotal year.

The accompanying music video was produced with love by the band, with the Swiss World Cup downhiller Annina Bruehwiler and Mario Hickethier. The remote Black Forest hut from childhood is a place of remembrance of an old friendship that was torn from this world far too early, every crack in the wood panelling is permeated by long evenings and shared history. The unique pictures of the Julier Pass in Graubünden show that the deep connection with life is a constant outdoor adven-ture.

The band felt how something so valuable can quickly disappear. With resolve to live in the present moment they recommend this maxim with ‘On And On’.
