- Tinyold Hands
With “Tinyold Hands”, Päfgens have crafted a recording imbued with the ambience and character of quiet wilderness, undeniably assisted by field recordings made over glacial icelandic landscapes. The album is a perfect snapshot of Päfgens’ sound; recorded live, as it was, to analog tape and mixed with these delicate and subtle field recordings that add to the band’s sonic toolbox. It is a beautiful collection of atmospheric, and emotionally affecting songs marked with instantly recognisable chorus-effected bass, reverb-soaked guitars, and 80s-inspired alt-pop melodies.
“They call their music naive, and rightly so. It’s simple, unpretentious, natural. Just beautiful.” – Na obrzezach / Michal Wieczorek / PL
“Most important element for Päfgens is melancholy, which require only simplicity without a need of layering sound. After all, it is as intimate as the room, where they record.” – oHudbe.sk / Miroslav Ondřejíček / SK
