Martiste – a name woven in atmosphere and vibe
From their humble beginnings as a trio in 2014, in Hanover, Germany, the band has walked the paths of rock and found inspiration in the music of the 90’s. From the start, the band’s songs have integrated their major influences such as Nirvana or Radiohead, with elements of classical music, where strings and majestic pianos take on more of a central character. After their first EP « Hesitation » (2016), and a series of concerts in the region of Hanover, the musicians are taking a step back to find the time to renew themselves.
Martiste has returned in 2018 as a collective, appearing on stage in different setups, with their focus shifting more towards their “ambient” inspirations. The band has been working closely with producer Fabio Trentini (Guano Apes, Donots), who has helped them to explore and expand on this new direction, as they follow in the footsteps of bands such as Deftones or Boards of Canada.
