The trip hop, ambient, electronic project BIINDS was founded by the German-Peruvian composer and sound designer Nicolo Sommer in 2012.
The self-titled debut album features exciting collaborations with musicians from the US, UK, Germany and Peru as well as Rival Consoles of Erased Tapes Records.
Christoph Heyden, an Olafur Arnalds collaborator, produced the visual for the single “Alpha“. Christoffer Castor of viral video “Buy My Volvo“ fame collaborated with a video for the single “The Pleasure Of Finding Things Out“.
BIINDS’ follow-up album “Antiphon“ featured collaborations with Vessels, Aidan Baker and more. The EP “Bloodlines On Ancient Skin“ was released at the end of 2016.
BIINDS’ atmospheric world is based on soothing vocals soaked in a luxurious trip-hop and light orchestral ambient mixture.
The band’s name was created from the English word ‘to bind’ to stress the idea of collaboration, another ’I’ was added to symbolize that more than one individual is needed to collaborate
