The Cold Hand

The Cold Hand - live at kater Holzig Berlin
The Cold Hand are a Berlin based Slow Motion, Doom Folk or Dream Pop Duo and Trio. They formed in early 2010 by Joanna Kupnicka and Anton Maiof through a shared love of gloomy atmospherics and melancholic soundworlds. The Cold Hand’s music sits somewhere between Angelo Badalamenti’s dreamlike soundtracks, late era Swans and Scott Walker.

Fondly they call their music “Funeral Folk”.

The group attempt to explore a shared other life in a murky inner city reality, the antithesis of a Berlin party band. To impose an alternate beautiful and sad world upon an audience without the need for shock tactics or excessive volume.”

In spring 2012 i came together with both musicians and created a visual show that extends a concert to a multi dimensional/sensual experience. Since early summer 2012 i collaborate on that with Miss Renay Penny ( ), who expands with her live drawings on video the live show with beautifull new dimensions.

The Show is right now still available for bookings!
