The Angels Of Libra are a 10-piece soul outfit from
Hamburg with a high affinity to analog recording
techniques, 60s soul revue concepts and film
Born out of a recording session in a house in
Denmark in which producer & guitarist Dennis Rux,
keyboard player Chris Haertel, bassist David
Nesselhauf and drummer Lucas Kochbeck spent
two weeks writing and recording instrumental
songs onto a 1980s TASCAM 388 8-track tape
recorder, the project was originally intended to be
a soul revue featuring various singers throughout
the record.

A few years previously, Rux had met Nathan Johnston at Clouds Hill Studios in Hamburg
while working on their own separate projects. In a search for new voices, Rux asked
Johnston if he would like to feature as a vocalist on one of the songs from the Denmark
As a challenge to his own songwriting abilities (with no instruction as to the lyrical
content/vocal melodies and complete freedom of expression) Johnston accepted the offer
and a few months later sent a demo to Rux of the newly titled track – “Angel Of Libra”.
After hearing it, the band decided to name themselves after the song’s title.

The newly appointed Angels Of Libra made their debut in
March 2021 with digital single “Kung Fu Noir”, a cinematic
instrumental with mysterious vibes. Their first physical release
however, came almost a year later, in February 2022, with
double-sider 45 “Bless My Soul” / “Souvenir” on Légère
Recordings, featuring music whiz Shawn Lee getting down
over two modern soul steppers. Following this, the Angels
released two upbeat tracks with 'European Soul' singer, Maiiah
- 'Obey' & 'Sunshine' respectively.
In the meantime, the band enlisted Johnston to come to Rux’s
‘Yeah Yeah Yeah!’ studios in Hamburg to write and record a full
length album, featuring 10 tracks of their own compositions
reminiscent of Air, Khruangbin or Ennio Morricone.
The first single off that album is the moody and seductive
“Angel Of Libra” set for release on June 3rd 2022 with Berlinbased
label Waterfall Records, soon to be followed by the fulllength,
and more surprises…. stay tuned!
