From A Fading World

Three years after their acclaimed debut album, „Infusion,“ the German Art Rock band Rubber Tea is back with their eagerly awaited second studio album, „From A Fading World.“ This album tells the captivating tale of Emily, the protagonist, who finds herself chased by a relentless sandstorm monster. In her small airplane, she embarks on a heroic mission to warn others of the impending danger.

„From A Fading World“ features 11 diverse compositions that span a wide range of musical styles. Explosive jazz-rock rhythms, intricate psychedelic soundscapes, epic saxophone and guitar solos – Rubber Tea skillfully brings Emily’s journey to life with impressive musical variety. The expressive vocals further immerse the listener in a musical world from which there’s no turning back.

„From A Fading World“ was released on vinyl and CD in December 2023 by Tonzonen Records. The vinyl edition includes a download code, a hand-signed 24-page booklet, illustrated to vividly convey the album’s narrative.

Infusion – our debut album

Rubber Tea’s „Infusion“ is a collection of musical stories and fictional journeys which let the listener escape into the vast world of their own imagination. The manifold album artwork created by David Erzmann perfectly represents the music: Rubber Tea makes use of a wide range of musical instruments – featuring electric and acoustic guitars, fretless bass, vintage synthesizers and organ, saxophone, flute and diverse percussion, amongst others. With the help of several guest musicians the band was able to further expand their sound.

It ranges from timeless, dreamy soundscapes (Downstream) to rythmically complex extravaganzas capturing insanity and confusion of recent history (American Dream). Alongside epic organ and guitar solos the concise voice of singer Vanessa Gross tells the most colourful stories, in a way no image or film by themselves ever could. The album rewards the attentive and curious listener with its progressive concept beyond the musical status quo.

After spending one year in the studio, Rubber Tea proudly presents their debut album „Infusion“ – 8 musical tales available on both CD and Vinyl, released by Sireena Records.
