City Slang are releasing the brand new album from German multi-instrumentalist Konstantin Gropper aka Get Well Soon.

The splendidly-titled ‘The Scarlet Beast O’Seven Heads’ is released on the 3rd September and is Konstantin’s third full album. His two previous albums (2008’s ‘Rest Now, Weary Head! You Will Get Well Soon’ & 2010’s ‘Vexations’) have sold over 100,000 copies.

A sample track – ‘You Cannot Cast Out The Demons (You Might As Well Dance’) – from the album has already been launched on the City Slang Soundcloud channel. Listen to it’s inventive sample & hook laden sound below it comes highly reccomended.

Get Well Soon will arrive in the UK for a stand-alone headline show at London’s Hoxton Bar & Kitchen on the 12th September.

So when this young man presented his new album, ominously entitled ‘The Scarlet Beast O’ Seven Heads’ and announced it as his “summer record”, everyone chuckled with delight, since clearly, he was joking. It turned out he wasn’t.

The ascent of Get Well Soon began six years ago with the debut album ‘Rest Now, Weary Head…’. In the Get Well Soon universe, everything sounds big; even the smallest, most intimate of moments ooze a certain grandeur. On his newest album, this is never truer, as Gropper takes us on a journey through his own ‘personal theme park’, one that takes its inspiration from Cinema Italiano, Henry Darger, 80s synths and every troubled woman that ever appeared in a Hitchcock film.
