„Blending ambient, EDM, indie rock, and pop genres, the duo of Marc Aretz on guitar and Chaem on vocals have crafted a unique sound. There really are elements of trap music in this lyrical tune, creepily sneaking into our ears.“ Composer’s Toolbox

25/01/18 Blog Posts & my song ‚If‘
Omg – I’m in love with the article the great blogger Electronic North from Manchester wrote about my music and my song „If“ 💞💫
Also so happy that my song „If“ is now on Soundcloud and has already been shared in by Loodma Recordings and the bloggers Mystic Sons from London and SirChillicious from Berlin in their new discovery playlists.
20/01/18 Blog Playlist
Yeah, the biggest music blog in Germany, Tonspion, wrote about our track in their latest blog-playlist. A big thank you to Linda Ann Davis 😍💫
„Secret Longing“ ist ein spannender Mix aus Klassik- und Elektro-Elementen gepaart mit hellen, klaren Vocals, die einen träumen lassen. Die Selbstbezeichnung „Art Pop“ trifft hier eindeutig zu, denn der Song ist voller Kreativität und neuen Soundkombinationen.“
11/01/18 ++Video premiere today! ++
Finally, Surrogate Sibling feat. Chaem’s rework of Carlos Cipa’s beautiful track ‚Secret Longing‘ is online, premiered by Gas Mask Magazine today. Check out the article and the video:

24/11/17 ++ 1st gig ++
The lovely people from SZ Junge Leute asked me to play 2 Songs on December 16th at Munich’s Cord Club. Each act is gonna perform a song from another band (surprise, surprise – I love surprises) and someone’s gonna do a special version of my song „Carousel“ – sooo exicited! Thinking about playing an acoustic set… still dunno! aaaah!
02/11/17 +++video premiere+++ To the Moon
yeah, I’m sooooo happy that the fabulous blog Overblown did the premiere of my new music video „To the Moon“. This track is a rather delicate, yet synth driven electro pop song, paying homage to the 80s in its deliberately retro sound design. We shot the video with a fabulous team on the hottest day of this summer.
05/10/17 Time to celebrate! Our song „Follow Me (Home)“ is nominated for the Deutscher Filmmusikpreis (German Film Music Award) category: „best film song“
Karsten Laser and I wrote this song for a very special and intimate scene in the movie Nirgendwo. Looking forward to the 3th of November in Halle – we*ll be there!
28/07/17 Thanks to Indiemono for the love and support. They’ve added „Munich“ to their Spotify playlist „Undiscovered & Chill“. Have a listen, there’s also Surrogate Sibling’s song „Derailed“ in it and plenty of beautiful songs to discover!!
