Having vast experience with performing in a number of different settings, we are very flexible with our setup. We are able to play with anything from a relaxed busking setup, consisting of guitar and cajon, to a full band setup. In March 2016 we released our self-produced and recorded, eponymous, debut EP, Cardboard Hearts. The EP was played on radios in both Luxembourg and Denmark. In early summer 2016 our first ever studio recorded single, Blink of an Eye, was released. On the 4th of December, 2016, we released our first, full-length album.

The beginning of 2017 led us to take part in the nationally-recognized music competition, Jugend Musiziert, where we scored 25 points in the finals and thus won the State competition for Berlin and Brandenburg. Recently we have been fortunate enough to have an increase in media coverage, leading to plays on radio stations such as STAR FM, Alex Berlin, and Fritz Radio.

“Channelling the spirit of the British indie and the post-punk revival of the mid-00s, Berlin-based Cardboard Hearts have released their eponymous debut EP.”
