Peter Kernel

Peter Kernel is a Swiss post-pop duo formed by Barbara Lehnho and Aris Bassetti. Inspired by their love story they are working together and releasing their own music since 2005.
In 2008 PK released their first album “How To Perform A Funeral” followed by “The Ticket Ep” on 10’’ vinyl in 2009, both for their own label On the Camper Records.
They were spotted by Spencer Krug from the Canadian band Wolf Parade (Sub Pop) who invited them to open for their European tour in September 2010.
In 2011 Peter Kernel released “White Death & Black Heart” for On The Camper Records in collaboration with French label Africantape. The album received a huge and warm welcoming across Europe and America, launching Aris and Barbara straight into the heart of the European musical scene.

In the past years Peter Kernel have played over 500 concerts across Europe and Canada. Their music is fully empty and simply complicated. It’s pop, it’s rock, it’s experimental and this is why they were called to play in many different situations like Montreux Jazz Festival, the fashion week in Milan, swimming pools, heavy noise festivals, museums and concert halls like the HMV Forum in London or the Soundlabs Festival in a stadium in Italy.

In 2016, Peter Kernel have been nominated amongst the most important musicians of Switzerland for the Swiss Music Grand Prix.
