The Backseat Lovers give a guest performance in Berlin. If you as a European only hear the band name, you probably imagine a shirt-sleeved and rather unsubtle rock band. But you are very much mistaken. The Backseat Lovers come from Salt Lake City, the center of the Mormons, who reject alcohol, tobacco, hot drinks and drugs and preach sexual abstinence. There the name immediately gets a more rebellious sound.

The first two new singles of the Backseat Lovers "Growing/Dying" and especially "Close Your Eyes" increase after a restrained beginning to fantastic hymns and give a nice foretaste of their second album "Waiting To Spill". Now they can be heard live at Gretchen.
