German Art-Pop band, Giant Rooks follow up last year’s stunning ‘Wild Stare’ EP with their new single “Watershed”, released ahead of their upcoming UK Shows in May.

The melancholy banger begins with a reverb laced piano hook before launching in a beautiful slice of angular indie disco. Giant Rooks do not hide the fact that the song borrows from house and electronic music in its urgency and hedonistic sound, they simply weave these elements into a track that is the perfect soundtrack to late nights in dave bars, either in London or Berlin.

The lo-fi video for the track leans heavily on the band’s own lives, being young musicians living in Berlin for the first time. It tells an abstract tale of life and love in the city.


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.
