Lava Suit explores post rock indie & folk sounds - both original songs as well as interpretations of existing  favorites.

Lava Suit is the experimental solo project from South African/ German musician and producer Gideon Kretschmer, now based out of the Channel Islands, UK. 

If you like a dose of beautiful acoustic/ electro melodies filled with melancholy and deeper meaning, that take you back in emotional reminiscence to your happiest memories or saddest day, you will love Lava Suit.

acoustic / ethereal / melodic / melancholic

Indulging in no-boundaries creative experimentation focused on stripped down productions of guitar, piano, synth, beats and his signature harmony laced vocals, Lava Suit is sure to take you on a journey. 

Says Gideon - “Lava Suit is my escape-pod from normal life, where I can just be myself creatively and release all my pent-up emotions, anxiety, fears, hopes, dreams through music and melody. It’s an honest and really personal musical “diary” and hopefully others can also find some connection and meaning in these songs.” 

Gideon writes and records everything himself in his own studio, but he also loves collaborating with other artists. An example of this is his ongoing collaboration with lyricist Ramon Rabie from Thailand, who again penned the magical lyrics for this song. 

Lava Suit is at its core an original music project, but he also loves re-interpreting favourite classics into his own unique sound - one example of this is his cover of Pearl Jam's classic “Nothingman” released in 2020. 

5th single "Horizon" released on Friday 8 October as a dual single (BARE + BOLD mix) and joins previous releases "Dynamite Dreams (Mar 2021), “Follow” (Oct 2020), “Candle Wax Memory Meltdown” (Jul 2020) and “Nothingman” (Jun 2020).
