"Durch unser zugedecktes Tal completes the Seasons Cycle of Brannten Schnüre. For three consecutive years (2014-2016), the duo released Aprilnacht (Spring), Sommer im Pfirsichhain (Summer) and Geträumt hab ich vom Martinszug (Autumn). Afterwards, they released two highly acclaimed and now out-of-print albums with Muschelsammlung and Erinnerungen an Gesichter and now Winter’s finally here with Durch unser zugedecktes Tal.
"The album evokes lyrically and sonically how people experience winter: from the joy of the first falling snow to the weariness of darkness and cold, from well-tried rituals to drive winter out to the relief of thawing and blooming snowdrops. Durch unser zugedecktes Tal is also a record about patience and hope. For the first time, Brannten Schnüre’s aesthetics are reminiscent of Christian beliefs; the idea of living a life pleasing to God is present in the final words cited on the record, a poem by German writer Hans Schiebelhuth that rounds up Durch unser zugedecktes Tal and leaves its listener behind in a solemn mood." - Holger Adam
