Sweet Spotlights: Giant Rooks' How Have You Been?

German Indie Rock band Giant Rooks release a classic sophomore album fit for fans of The 1975, Inhaler and Arctic Monkeys.

About The Album:

Giant Rooks’ new album, How Have You Been?, is a 14-track collection that seamlessly blends a wide range of influences, creating a cool pop-rock sound fuelled by catchy lyrics and interesting beats.

Following their debut album ROOKERY, the German indie-rockers felt like they needed to change their songwriting process and style, inspired by the R&B, Soul and Jazz music they were listening to. After roughly a year of trial and error, they realized it just wasn’t natural:

“We kind of got lost in the process of wanting something that you’re actually not really able to do...We kind of lost our identity for a sec.”

The band realized that the five of them jamming around on instruments together was exactly what worked for them and ended up creating a “classic-sounding” band album.

“Our approach was to write timeless music on this one, timeless songs that can be maybe still relevant in 10 years or 15 years or 20 years.”
