Leonard, singer-songwriter with a penchant for delicate acoustic guitar, and Jonas, rapper, beat tinkerer and all-night sound wizard. In 2018, the two decide that two musical preferences, two singers and two characters is an energetic basis to merge. OTTOLIEN - henceforth not just a surname, but a band.
Checked-out electronic sounds, hand-clapped beats with a touch of the 80s form the flying carpet driving forward. Between concrete-catchy hooks and abstract images, the two also create a hybrid mixture in their German lyrics. Those who follow them will find lyrical insights into the OTTOLIEN soul life but always also free space for their own mind games.
