Dear friends,


We have been mulling it over for quite a while now, trying to figure out the best way to keep in contact with those who want to support us. We have our "Riffs with Kliffs" newsletter, which we are grateful that many of you have signed up for. But we'd like to have something more interactive, something built on a conversation. We feel we've finally found a platform that suits us. It's called Fanklub and it's run by our friends at Backseat PR and Label in Hamburg. Unlike Patreon, it's a platform that is specifically designed for musicians. 


So how does it work? There's a minimum fee of €1,99/month – or voluntarily more – to sign up, and we, the artist, gets 90% of the proceeds to help with supporting their artistic endeavours. The other main reason we want to start something like this is that we're frustrated, like many others, with the nature of the algorithms on Instagram, Facebook, Spotify...etc and how they essentially curate for us who we reach, and what we receive. We'd prefer to have a more direct way to communicate with you. So if you want to support us in a way that is above and beyond coming to shows and listening to our music, this is another way to do it!


So what does it mean if you sign up? For one, you'll be directly helping us to do what we love to do. But as well:


1) We'll give you an early preview of the album in late January (the new album comes out 10.2.23!) along with a little Zoom performance of some of the songs.


2) We plan to make a performance video once a month of our favourite cover song of the moment. We'll share it with you directly once it's done (only snippets will be on other social media platforms). 


3) We'll give you guest list passes whenever we come through your town.  


4) And if you're really curious about what we do, you can always write us and ask. We're nice people:)


If you're interested and want to support us, please come jump on board. We feel very fortunate to have made it this far with our music. It's been a very very enjoyable ride for us so far. We'd love to share it even more with all of you.


With much affection and gratitude,


Kliffs (Mark + Kristina)

KLIFFS will release their new album "Four Skinny Hands" on February 10th, 2023!


Kliffs is the Berlin-based duo of Mark Bérubé (Canadian-Swiss – piano, guitar, vocals) and Kristina Koropecki (Canadian – cello, synths, vocals). The two met fourteen years ago in an improvised Montréal rehearsal space when Kristina joined Mark’s solo project. The two toured together with Mark’s band numerous times across Canada and Europe, and eventually re-located to Berlin, Germany in 2014. After a brief hiatus for other projects, the two teamed up again in 2018 as a duo under their new name KLIFFS and released their first album Temporary Cures in November, 2019. You might have already seen them playing opening for bands like Agnes Obel or Gisbert zu Knyphausen, or Mark singing with Sophie Hunger around Europe over the last year.


Geographically, they create Montreal-music in Berlin. Musically, they compose songs better suited to late-night inner city bike rides and shy dancers. Lyrically, they write recycled tone poems that harness the thoughts of the perpetually bemused and the intensity of soft earthquakes.


Kliffs are seasoned and skilled musicians and have acquired the craft of joining their instruments and their voices together to form a delicate balance in their songs. Koropecki’s classical music training and her boundless curiosity for all new sounds perfectly compliment Bérubé’s reverence of time-honoured song-craft where lyrics take centre-stage.


Past Press Reviews:


Rolling Stone (Germany) - "[Temporary Cures] has nothing for pomposity despite [its] lush ornamentation, but like baroque lyrics, it is obsessed with transience." (3 1/2 Stars out of 5)


Earmilk - "Temporary Cures is...beautiful, exquisitely arranged"


RXMusic - "as stellar as it is diverse"


Globe and Mail Canada -  (Album was "pick of November" 2019): "indie-rock Leonard Cohen"


Calgary Herald - "a beautiful mash-up of glistening synth, folk-pop songwriting and classical leanings"
