Photo Morgana

Synth-pop with a melancholic twist

We are Photo Morgana

Founded in autumn 2017 when Remi (vocals, keys) and Jan (guitars, backing vocals, keys) met through a website where people look for musical companionship, sharing a mutual fondness of electronic music, but with a strong wish of incorporating organic "real" instruments in their music. With a broad spectrum of influences like LCD Soundsystem, Depeche Mode, Metronomy, John Maus, Massive Attack and of course, Radiohead, they started writing synth-based songs with lyrics that have a deep connection with their own personal lives, but where all people can relate to.

Together with Remon (drums, backing vocals) Photo Morgana brings you a dynamic electronic live set with their synths and samples, while keeping it "real" by adding acoustic drums and real guitars.

2020 plans

The past weeks were quite busy for us. We played a lot of gigs and put out a new track 'World on Hold', so with a fresh new year ahead of us it's time to make some new plans! Besides rehearsals we also meet up not to make music, but to work on our tracks on our laptops, record some new ideas and most of the times have a good laugh while we're doing it.

In our last meeting we've been searching for new opportunities to play and made contact with a bunch of venues and festivals. Also we talked about our plans and goals for our band.

One the things we're really looking forward to, is putting out some of our music on mainstream music services or even hard copies. We notice that people ask us why they can't find us on Spotify and also because of that we're growing more and more confident that our music and sound deserves a bigger platform.

Of course, we think that we have some pretty decently recorded and mixed tracks on our Soundcloud and YouTube pages, but this year we want to take it to the next level, by really putting our music out there to music streaming platforms.

Also, we really want to finish a bunch of tracks dat we already play live (To name a few: 'In Hindsight', 'Voodoo' and 'Faith'), but we also have may song ideas. Some of them aren't more than just a few chords, others are already starting to sound like a real song.

So, we cannot give you a fully detailed schedule yet, but you sure will hear from us this year!

Our next live gigs will be at Gluren bij de Buren in Hilversum. We play 3 (!) 30 minute sets, starting from 12:45 (afternoon). More information on their website.
