About us

We’re an aspiring newcomer rock band from Bern, Switzerland, consisting of four guys. We try to play thrilling, emotional, and expressive rock music while always refining our own style.
Our music can be described as alternative rock with many influences from classic rock, hard rock, and punk, depending on which song you listen to. We try to mix different guitar sounds with wild drums, piano or classic Hammond organ sounds (and let me tell you we really do love those) to create whatever we like best.
The whole story of this band, how it was created and how it evolved, is quite long. We’re working on getting it down on paper and soon you’ll have a great story to read. But for now, you’re gonna just have to believe us.

Why «Apartment 99»?

When we started out a few years back, our members lived in two different cities, namely Berne and Zurich. As if that wasn’t already making the organization of rehearsal difficult enough, the only bandroom we found was in a third location that wasn’t really convenient for both parties. But hey you gotta do with what you find, right?
So, to get the most out of the situation without having to live every hour (editor’s note: this is probably a gross exaggeration) not spent breaking drum sets and making amps scream like there was no tomorrow, spent in a train, we decided to meet every other weekend.
For two days straight, nothing happening outside of this bandroom mattered. Playing music, eating, drinking, smoking, and sleeping (the last one was by far the least important), all happened down there, in this old farm’s cellar. Hell we didn’t even have any signal down there.
It was as if we had our own apartment. Now that cellar had been transformed into a bandroom in 1999. And there you have it: Apartment 99

Media

Peek into our world.
When time has taken its toll
And the flames fade into the sky
I know there’s nothing left,
Nothing left but ashes and coal.
Buried under it.
Eyes sharp as a knife,
A will to defy,
Wings ready to fly.
The rise of a phoenix.
We are, we are the phoenix!
