New video: ‘Love’

Love: this is the first song we wrote for The Spell, and the album’s concept revolves around it. We felt this is a fitting video to release next, during our current Latin American tour where we’ve received so much love from all the amazing fans coming to our shows in Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, Peru, Chile, Argentina, and now Brazil. After these wonderful shows we’ll be ready for a short break to recharge, before finally bringing The Spell with a full show to Europe!

OUT NOW: The Official Video for Six Days

It‘s the sixth of November. A good day to present you with the video to our song „Six Days“, a dark and abstract story about the last man left on earth. We‘ve always wanted this special song to have a visual representation and we knew immediately that if we ever could realise the project the man for it would be our favourite artist Costin Chioreanu

Without any guidelines he has managed to capture the atmosphere perfectly, the video really shows what was inside Anna’s head when she wrote the lyrics and recorded the first demo in the middle of the night. When we further worked on this song we realised once more that we are not really bound to one style of music and that we have the freedom to expand our horizon even more - that‘s why this song will always have a special meaning to us. We hope you love it as much as we do!

'Avalanche' Single & Video Released!

We’re proud and happy to present to you the next single and video from our upcoming album ‘This Is The Sound’: Avalanche!

Let us take you on another journey into a picturesque, abstract world. Listen to the summoners of the ‘Avalanche'. A story about a cult and a freezing end to an intimate death wish…

Shot in the heat of beautiful Tenerife, an intentionally contradictory setting, this video tells you our story with symbolism and movement, contrasts & metaphors. So sit back and let your imagination run wild - enjoy!

Once again we’d like to thank everyone involved for their hard work: the talented actress Fabienne Fellmann and of course AVA Studios GmbH and their awesome team!

Also included in the digibook will be an alternative and limited cover artwork plus an extended 32-page booklet, filled with the our notes on the stories behind the songs. 

Official merch is now available to order from our online store, including pre-orders for the official album cover shirt:


We’re proud and happy to present to you the first single and video from our upcoming album ‘This Is The Sound’: Black Moon!

Black Moon' is one of the first songs we wrote after our debut single last year, and probably the point where we definitely "found" our sound. Ivo randomly called his original demo 'Moon' and that triggered the idea of a story based on the fear of a black moon... So, as a lyrical theme, we ended up exploring mankind's tendency to add an apocalyptic interpretation to the lunar eclipse.
We'd like to thank everyone involved for their hard work in the scorching hot 'lunar landscape' of Tenerife: he talented Fabienne Fellmann and her fellow actors as well as AVA Studios and their awesome team!

We’ve also launched the pre-order for the album and you can get the single now on any digital platform of your choice!

First Single Released: Challenge is Out Now!

#Challenge is here. We are incredibly excited to share the very first Cellar Darling song with you! Along with ‘Challenge’, we have also released another song from the same writing and recording sessions: ‘Fire, Wind & Earth’ is a bonus track we couldn’t keep from you any longer!

‘Challenge’ is about an inner struggle, a battle you are fighting against yourself and the world. It is you, screaming at yourself in the mirror and getting high on new-found strength. It is failing, overcoming and achieving. The bipolar dance that is life.

We have fallen. We have screamed. We have battled. We found strength. We will overcome.
Both songs are available for streaming and downloading at Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, Deezer, and all your favorite platforms and services.

The lyric video features the talent of actress Fabienne Fellmann (who is also featured on the cover artwork). It is based on an idea by Anna Murphy, directed by Anna Murphy & Cellar Darling, with videography and editing by Merlin Sutter and generous post-production help by Michel Frutig at Maybaum Film.

Both songs were recorded and produced by Cellar Darling and Marco Jencarelli & Anna Murphy at Soundfarm, mixed by Tommy Vetterli at New Sound Studio, and mastered by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios. All strings are recorded by the one and only Shir-Ran Yinon, and the artwork features photography by Merlin Sutter.
