Once in a while, Germany offers uniquely talented female singers, and Andrea is one of those. Draw yourself a line from Marlene Dietrich over to Nico, add some dashes Chamber Pop in the vein of The Tindersticks to it and you come close. Discovered and loved by such illustrious people like Charles Plymell or Mike Watt, Andrea Schroeder is such an exceptional phenomenon. She’s a musical poetess, with an outstanding voice that is as fascinating as her thrilling and melancholic lyrics. „Where The Wild Oceans End“ is Andrea’s second album produced by Chris Eckman (The Walkabouts, Tamikrest, Midnight Choir) and analogue recorded at the Ocean Sound Recording Studios, Norway very close to the Atlantic coast. If you compare her forthcoming release to the critical acclaimed debut album „Blackbird“ you must admit that she has taken the next big step. Andrea Schroeder and her band, including Danish guitarist and songwriting partner Jesper Lehmkuhl (Farmen), have made an unbelievable progression since releasing „Blackbird“ on Glitterhouse Records in 2012. Focussing on her seductive but threatening voice and the charateristic melancholic storys Andrea’s musical vision is still growing. „Where The Wild Oceans End“ is an album as it was made from one piece: it leaves its marks but inspires your soul and ends in deepest satisfaction.
