About Us

Pia Karsten

Pea Sized is Pia Kayser and Karsten Kayser from Wiesbaden, Germany. We've been a couple since 1999, and started seriously making music together in 2008. Our music is atmospheric alternative/electronic, mostly downtempo with a somewhat dark and experimental touch. Before this, Karsten had been playing with a number of local bands for over a decade, mostly as bassist.

In addition to conventional instruments such as guitars, synthesizers, and percussion, we tend to use (or abuse, if you will) things like melodicas, children’s toys, and various other things that produce some kind of sound. Electronic and acoustic sounds fuse in many different ways. The lyrics, written by Pia, revolve around personal impressions and emotions that are inspired by living in a postmodern world.

Our influences range from Portishead, PJ Harvey, Peaches, Björk, Feist, Róisín Murphy, CocoRosie, Tori Amos, and Radiohead to Lhasa, Soul-Funk, Balkanbeats, Arabic Groove and Electronica.
