Given the absence of news about him, many would have presumed Console had disappeared. But nothing could have been farther from the truth, as the German Martin Gretschmann is definitely alive and kicking. Apart from The Notwist and other side projects (13 & God, Acid Pauli and Saroos, for instance), Martin has found the time to resuscitate Console. His new album, the first one since “Mono” (Disko B, 2006), will hit stores next Friday via Disko B. Martin started writing the songs on “Mono” whilst on the road, travelling from venue to venue, during the latest tours of The Notwist. He worked on those first sketches in Munich with the help of Miriam Osterrieder on vocals. The result is “Herself”. The first single off this new Console recording is this, “Of Time”, which is accompanied by a home-made video filmed in India by Gretschmann himself at the end of last year.
