Rubber Tea biography
A Bremen-oriented act RUBBER TEA were founded in 2017 by five young musicians - Vanessa GROSS (voices, saxophones, flute), Lennart HINZ (keyboards, voices), David ERZMANN (bass), Jonas ROUSTAI (guitars), and Henri PINK (drums) - obviously inspired by progressive / art rock. They've created, developed, and recorded material whilst playing in various festivals (like the legendary Burg Herzberg Festival) and venues. Finally their debut album "Infusion" was released in 2020 after more than two years' production.

Special Collaborator PSIKE Team & Band Submissions

4 stars It's a mystery. Eh, I smell some intent here. You'll find sources where the album counts seven songs, others eight though. The latter are listing the opener On Misty Mountains and Downstream as seperate entries. So does the associated label Sireena Records. And then, to make it even more complicated, regular member or not, occasionally second guitarist Maik Scheling is missing in the line up. Well, never mind, this does not affect the musical flow in the end, that's comforting in any case. RUBBER TEA is a relatively new band on the prog stage with the homebase in Bremen, Germany.

Their debut album offers a sophisticated and profound mixture of styles, to name psychedelic, canterbury, jazz, neo and art rock ... very appealing. Also a rich instrumentation is to state on 'Infusion', presented by the six (or five actually?) regular members, plus some guest musicians. Vanessa Gross contributes a voice nicely matching to the instrumental counterpart. As well as sax, flute, and additional percussion on top. Overall this is a quite charming and relaxed multi-layered experience, with the song Storm Glass reaching for the artistical peak. A mysterious computer animated voice leads into some dramatic moments here, Mellotron, synths and a nice canterburyesce backing are serving the opposite pole. Fantastic!

Opulent use of wind instruments on The Traitor, polyphonic vocals when it comes to The Drought. 'Make America Great Again!' ... what are you associating now? ... American Dream then obviously draws references to the political situation in the US, is capturing insanity and confusion of recent history and current present. Some may be unsure, but the new RUBBER TEA turns out to be very tasty actually. Skilled compositions, entertaining implementation, and last but not least equipped with a colourful cover art - regarding 'Infusion' let me transfer congrats and proggy greetings to Bremen! Waiting for another new type of tea to enjoy now.

Thanks to dAmOxT7942 for the artist addition.
