Hiking for a full kilometer with outstretched arms –a clear goal in sight and a feeling of gravity-defying liberty, helps globetrotter Mario Castelberg develop bizarre ideas, including the name of his band: Lyft Trio. This was founded while guitarist Castelberg and his fellow band members Joel Banz (bass) and Janic Haller (drums) were waiting to be freed out of a stuck lift. Their music is inspired by the unlimited freedomof jazz, the atmosphere of the Americana and the song-conducive catchiness of pop music. Always in balance between dissonanceand consonance, clear melodies and spherica lnoises, simplicity and complexity. Due to this versatility the Lyft Trio picks up its audience like a lift –if it doesn’t accidentally get stuck –and elevates it into weightless and dreamlike but alsolucid spheres.
