mellowtone – ambient shoegaze
mellowtone’s sound ranges from ambient shoegaze to psychedelic trip hop, influenced by pop, rock and indie. catchy music, soft passion, without frills but endlessly versatile.
these mellow tones are shaped by the voice of singer martina birbaum: melancholic, sometimes stirring, but always unmistakable. responsible for the sound are mirco ackermann (guitar), ives schmidt (piano), matthias haymoz (bass) and beat huber (drums).
