Get Well Soon

Official Artist Website

A daring, dazzling opus. Fans of the Arcade Fire and Radiohead will faint clean away.
— ★★★★ Uncut

Get Well Soon is a music and band project and musical vision of the German singer, songwriter and multi – instrumentalist , producer , and philosophy student Konstantin Gropper.

Blending folk, indie-rock, classical and filmscore-like wideness.

The music combines such a variety of sound and influences from all over the world, including tango as well as eastern European Brass and the soundtracks of Ennio Morricone, that it’s probably best described as post-modern.

Described as ‘the bastard child of Bright Eyes and Radiohead’ Gropper’s sound is refreshing to come out of the German music scene, of which its international interest is dominated by electronic music and as a challenge to the British music scene over the past few years, in which so many pre- fabricated bands have put out a couple of decent songs before letting you down with a mediocre album. Konstantin’s writing and arrangement does quite the opposite, he sets a scene and then draws you in whilst beautifully crafting between genres until reaching a final climax.

Rest Now, Weary Head! You Will Get Well Soon was the debut album by the German artist and was released in 2008 to plenty of plaudits . Signed To Nude and City Slang .
3 years in the making the album is timeless, mixing genres: Folk and Electro and classical music a faint memory of long gone eras – hook lines of pop music are lying at the wayside, waiting to be touched with the slightest irony.

Film director Wim Wenders (Paris,Texas / Buena Vista Social Club) personally commissioned Get Well Soon to write two tracks for his new film ‘The Palermo Shooting’ alongside Portishead, Nick Cave’s Grinderman, Will Oldham and Iron & Wine.  It was selected for the Cannes Film Festival 2008.

The album entered the German Album Charts at 28 and the resulting tour consisting of 19 almost completely sold out shows secured the tour as the most successful newcomer tour in Germany for 2008.

The recording equivalent of building the Eiffel Tower from matchsticks.

An impressive debut...the arrangements are breathtaking.
