VIDEO OF THE WEEK: FINAL STAIR 'HOPE'





Berlin based three-piece Final Stair are delighted to announce the release of their new single “Hope” and video for the track on the 13th May 2022.


“Hope” is another stunning slice of emotive alt rock. Driving rhythms overlaid with the beautiful harmonies. The video carries on the narrative of previous videos for singles “End Of Love” (Video HERE) and “Morning Dew” (video HERE). The story of the “Hope” video revolves around a father who spends time peacefully and reclusively with his son, but in a dramatic ending must go to extremes to protect his son. Like "End of Love", there is also a visual reference here to 1813 and the Battle of the Nations in Leipzig under Napoleon, a time that the band is personally very interested and which they themselves repeatedly present with their re-enactment group (a personal hobby of the band members).



The band says of “Hope”, "We all long for happiness in life. Especially in difficult times we are looking for strength and motivation. Overall, personal defeats and life in a metropolis have inspired us. The world is already noisy enough and that's why you should appreciate the little silence even more. Hope should always be a driving force. That's what this song is about."


Berlin is known for many things, though save for a few names like Tangerine Dream, Rammstein and Atari Teenage Riot, rock music hasn’t necessarily always been one of them. It’s something that German trio Final Stair are planning to change, who’ve found great inspiration in the wonderfully war-torn, visually imperfect and often hedonistic surroundings they’ve grown up around. Formed by twin brothers Istvan and Denes Vörös in 2012, with current drummer André Seidel joining in 2016, this is a band who want to celebrate the intoxicating light and darkness around them through thunderous groove and soaring chorus hooks...

The band have honed theior craft and built a loyal fanbase in Germany (helped by previous single “Over The Top” being used extensively on the Netflix show “Cable Girls”). The trio will be releasing their debut album, titled Hope, via their own Sonic Grit label later this year. The music was recorded by the members themselves in their own rehearsal facility, a place where they could dictate their own rate of progress and painstakingly boil down a broad list of influences into the core fundamentals that made them unique. With tracks like Dreamhunter (“a big fuck you to everyone who ignored us”), Never Felt Before (“an old song that represents our grunge roots”) and Morning Dew (“one of our biggest hooks”) touching on the anthemic greatness of Queens Of The Stone Age, Biffy Clyro and The Killers in ways that feel completely fresh and new, Hope will undoubtedly be remembered as one of the finest rock debuts of its year...
