photo by
Band name:
Mental Bend.

Where are you from?
Germany, (Berlin/Mannheim).

Who is in your band? 
Sissip (vocals, synth, bass) and Hendrik Havekost (beats, electronics).

How would you describe yourselves?

Who are your main influences musically?
The XX, Hundreds, Moderat.

What do you hope to achieve in music?
Happy people and happy us.

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
The positive response to our EP (especially to the song 'Take My Hand') throughout the internet and playing several cool festivals in our first year of existance (2013).

And what’s the moment you want to forget?
Everything good so far, except for that one time when our laptop almost died on stage because we forgot to plug in the charging cable (we had to make a short interruption so Sissip could go get it from the backstage...).

If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
That would be 'Take My Hand' because it best represents our minimalistic approach to our music.

Where can we listen to it?

Where can we find out more about your music?

Anything else you’d like to say that I forgot to ask?

When we play live we like working with different video artists. On our last tour we even did some of our own visuals:
