riches of the poor
A band from Berlin
Riches of the Poor is the Berlin based Indie Rock project of Simon Breth (Keyboards, Bass, Cello) and Miky (Vocals, Guitars), with Neukölln native Cordelia Polinna on drums and Swedish virtuoso Daniel Segerberg on additional guitars.
Simon is an accomplished Architect and classical Cellist, who’s often experimenting with sounds, noise and recording technics. Miky has been writing songs since the age of seven, singing and playing several instruments in bands in Bonn and Berlin since the 90s – mostly inspired by moody British and European acts such as The Cure, The Smiths, dEUS and Sophia.
Born on the very same day back in the seventies in different parts of the world, Simon and Miky started working together in 2015. Miky’s depressed pop songs are surrounded with a combination of folky grooves and shoe-gazing guitarscapes. So you might call them Folkgazers.
