Hailing from Darmstadt, Germany, a town known for its contributions to fine art and theatre, the original line-up of Common Spring were a five piece that played what one could describe as a mixture of folk and modern independent, with beautiful female vocals and romantic violin playing. The songs are often quiet, romantic and melodic. Unfortunately their original line-up ( Tine Hudl - Voice, Benjamin Metz - Guitar and Voice, Christoph Ziegler - Bass, Daniel Malkmus - Violin, David S.- Drums and Percussion) only managed one album, but Common Spring still exists today in Darmstadt, albeit in a more pop form, fronted by Benjamin "Benny" Metz. Still a good live band, they play regularly, and have supported such well-known names such as The Legendary Pink Dots, Penelope Houston, The Schramm, as well as our own Merlons.
