Haerts Play a Hometown Show at Rough Trade NYC on Friday NightDecember 7th, 2017
After performing in Munich as Nini & Ben, childhood friends Nini Fabi (vocals) and Benjamin Gebert (keys) moved to Greenpoint in Brooklyn seven years ago and began recording and performing as the dreamy electronic-pop duo Haerts (above, performing “Wings” live in studio for KEXP FM). Their self-titled debut full-length (stream it below) dropped in 2014. Paste (and others) compared Fabi to Stevie Nicks, while AllMusic added: “It’s Haerts’ combination of straightforward, rootsy melodicism and more experimental, ambient inclinations that helps them grab your ear and your heart.” Recently, the band’s been working on new songs, and you just might here some of that music on Friday night at Rough Trade NYC. NYC trio Wilsen open the show.
