Koenix, the internationally well-known medieval folk rock band from Switzerland, is finally back. After four studio albums and the „best of“ album „Dekade 1“ the musicians – Jonas Martin Schneider (vocals, bagpipes), Michael Hugi (bagpipes, hurdy-gurdy), Marco Piccapietra (bouzouki, sitar) and Philipp Eichenberger (drums) – returned with new material. Over the next few months they are going to release three singles as well as a brand-new album. For the past eleven years Koenix established themselves at medieval, folk and indie festivals in various European countries, impressing with spectacular live shows including their own in-house pyrotechnics, dancers and magnificent costumes. The new drummer Philipp Eichenberger turns out to be a real win. His rhythmic foundation shows repeatedly that his roots are in the metal genre.
“Hanna“ (Release 18. Feb 2022) is a ballad that thrives on its recurring music box theme and accordion backing. It tells the story of a girl named Hanna, who sets out to get rid of her inner demons. On her way, a new chapter begins.
