„If you put your head under water, everything gets quiet and you can hear nothing but yourself.“
ACUA is a Psych Pop/Rock band from Cologne, Germany. Their sound is the vacuum between retro and future, in which they celebrate getting lost in their very own melancholic euphoria. ACUA is spacy guitars, energizing drums, reeling synthesizers and singing baselines. Patrick (Vox, Guitar), Caroline (Drums) and Igor (Bass, Synths) are singing about wanting to see beyond a limited world that has become so superficial or asking if there is more future or more past. Listen closely to hear the airy yet powerful two vocals of lead singer Patrick and drummer Caroline, floating over painting bass-melodies by Igor, building up far-off images that appear alive when you close your eyes.
They have been active since 2018 and built up a remarkable international reputation before the pandemic, going on tour in Canada from Toronto to Vancouver. In early 2020 they performed 8 shows in Japan across various cities, from Tokyo to Takamatsu. In addition to being a support act for FKJ, Japanese House and OMNI, they played over 50 shows in the run up to their debut album, such as Reeperbahn Festival or c/o Pop Festival. Now they continue their journey with the new single “Ghost Train”, on the way to their 2nd album coming out in Summer 22 on Papercup Records.

Peter Mathis aka Peter The Human Boy calls himself a slow rocker and has an audible preference for nostalgic lyrics, vintage synthesizers, and DIY spirit. The self-produced debut album Goodbye Summer came out in autumn 2019 as a dreamy beach bar mixtape of surf rock and bedroom pop. Indie artists like Mac Demarco, Kevin Parker (Tame Impala), and Natalie Mering (Weyes Blood) have left their mark on the multi-instrumentalist. On his second album Stranger's Life (May 2022) Peter opens up the door to his mind a little further in search of identity in an ever changing world. This is accompanied by shimmering synths, Motown like drum grooves and psychedelic guitar parts.
