Berlin holds a romantic place in the musical landscape.
From Bowie to U2 artists have flocked to the German city to soak up its unique atmosphere, to re-invent themselves amidst a landscape which has been forced to re-invent itself almost too many times.
Hailing from Bath, The Family Rain couldn't quite resist the temptations of Germany's capital city. Flying out to Berlin earlier this year, the band locked themselves away to focus on the recording of their debut album.
Working at Hansa Studios, the band have been busy experimenting - capturing their live sound whilst also exploring new techniques.
A camera crew accompanied the group into the studio, following The Family Rain as their debut album came into focus. Pieced together into a short film, watch 'Part One' on Clash.
