April 3, 2023 BY Jason Currell
Today, the German born twin brother duo, Amistat share their cinematically intimate new EP, colour in life, via Nettwerk. As twin brothers, Josef and Jan Prasil, share an unspoken and unexplainable bond best sung aloud. The power of this bond courses through their familial harmonies and eloquent songcraft accented by individual idiosyncrasies. Songs unfold like stories with two narrators, allowing both voices space to ring out. The duo’s vibrancy shines effortlessly on colour in life.
Jan and Josef share, “We’re so different, but we unite when it comes to music….we grew up listening to the same songs. If you harmonize with a sibling, it’s different from harmonizing with a person you’re not related to. Since we’re twin brothers, we pretty much have the same agenda. We never wanted to do anything else, because we’ve lived a very similar life. That’s what makes this special.”

We want to show how beautiful it is to enjoy life with beautiful people. It’s always been the most important message for us.
