The Picturebooks are a rock-blues-country-soaked German duo consisting of Fynn Claus Grabke (vocals/guitar) and Philipp Mirtschink (drums). Signed to the highly regarded LA psych/stoner imprint Riding Easy, they have recently completed their first UK tour, where they went down the proverbial storm on a set of dates with The Answer to promote the forthcoming UK release of their album Imaginary Horse.
They return in mid-May to for the following shows:
- 16.05 BRIGHTON – The Great Escape
- 17.05 BRISTOL – Louisiana
- 19.05 LONDON – Barfly
- 20.05 TUNBRIDGE WELLS – Forum
- 22.05 LEICESTER – Scholar
- 23.05 SHEFFIELD – Corporation
Recorded in the same garage where they regularly refurbish and repair motorcycles and choppers (both are enthusiastic bikers), ‘Imaginary Horse’ captures a raw, rich and real energy befitting the room’s natural reverb, industrial aura and spiritual spark. More importantly, it has begun to rev up the boys’ career.
Premiered by Noisey, a video for the first single from the album, ‘Your Kisses Burn Like Fire’ is a sweaty, boot-stomping affair featuring a growling Grabke, a driving backbone via Mirtschink….and some beautiful scenery. It can be seen below.
