Marco & Dario Klein - Used
Twin brothers Marco & Dario Klein make up the band Used.
The twins started playing in a band called The Frogs when they were just 12 years old. The band began with cover songs mainly of the Beatles but soon they began to write their own original material, which was a crossover of beat/funk and groove music.
After the band split in 2008, the brothers began studying at the Popakademie Mannheim and in 2009 they signed an American publishing and management deal staying in the States for one year. Because of difficulties getting an artist Visa, Marco and Dario had to return to Germany where they started their demo recordings for their first Album Moving On which was released in September 2011.
The album has a great British Indie sound with overtones of The Beatles and Oasis, though their style and music is uniquely theirs.
In 2012 the boys toured in Germany and have remained focused on their songwriting.
Throughout 2013 and 2014 Marco & Dario worked on the demo recordings for their second album "Here We Are." This was released on 12th December 2015.
"Here We Are" has more upbeat songs than the first album, "Moving On," but still retains their own unique style and sound.
