◯ isn´t just the letter. ◯ is the circle symbol and at the same time the name of this five piece band from the border region (Belgium/ Netherlands/ Germany) around Aachen, Germany. In summer 2010 they got together with the aim to create spheric musical and visual landscapes. Their music wants to take the audience on a turbulent journey somewhere between ambient and postrock and sometimes you can guess their musical roots found in punk/hardcore. Finding themselves musically placed between bands like GYBE or Sigur Ros and having shared the stage with bands like Earth, Chelsea Wolfe or 65 Days Of Static, they found an own approach having integrated a stunning instrument like the hurdy-gurdy.

After their debut full-length „Black Sea Of Trees“ (2012) and a follow-up split 7“ with their now labelmates Planks this year, they will be returning to the studio in early next year to record their new album for Golden Antenna Records to be released in late spring of 2014.
