It's that "retroelectro" sound and vibe, topped off with jazzy vocals, that will keep you grooving. ALBUM NOW AVAILABLE IN ORANGE SHOPS ACROSS THE COUNTRY.
In just one year since we've started, we've managed to open for JAMIROQUAI, have a national tour with RED BULL and release an album with the support of ORANGE ROMANIA.
Our first performance ever was opening for JAMIROQUAI on July 2nd 2011, in front of 35.000 people.
Our first national tour was in partnership with RED BULL. The Red Bull "New In Town" Tour began in February and lasted until April 2012.
We recently released our first album, "Shout", with the support of ORANGE ROMANIA. The album release event gathered 3000 people that filled the venue's capacity (access by invitation only / invitations available on both band's and Orange's facebook pages, through a dedicated application).
We're also planning on releasing an acoustic version of the album.
(it was for the first and only time the two brands supported a band in Romania)
Following the first public appearance (opening slot for Jamiroquai at Orange Summer Party event in 2011), we played two important EUROPEAN FESTIVALS: SUMMER WELL (Romania) and SPIRIT OF BURGAS (Bulgaria).
For the following shows the stage set was upgraded. LES ATELIERS NOMAD joined the team (3D mapping engineers in charge of the visuals). The show consists of a mix between abstract visual elements and synchronised short videos of each band member playing, projected onto circles of different dimensions, suspended above the stage. It looks different everytime, as we've always had a different set-up.
(You can get a better picture of what our show looks like from the "No More" video. It contains footage from our album release event, received from fans).
Every single released so far („Still”, „Shout”, "Play", "Hello"and "No More") has reached the top positions in Romania’s best alternative radio charts (with “Shout” entering the charts straight at No1). In January 2012 Superfly Fm, from Vienna also started airing "Play", "Silent Disco" and more recently, "No more". We were invited to have a live acoustic session in the Superfly studio to promote their album.
"No more" is the latest single and was no 1 for 2 consecutive weeks in the Guerrilla chart.
Selected to represent Romania in October 2011 for the Music Alliance Pact (Every month, 35 music bloggers from around the world, operating together as the Music Allliance Pact, simultaneously post a favourite new track from their patch of the planet.)
Selected to play at the UEFA Europa League Finals gala (held this year in Bucharests' National Arena) by UEFA officials.
Selected to play at the closing party of the Transilvanian International Film Festival 2012.
Described by american blogger Fred Hystere as "Bananarama with Billie Holiday-style vocals", the distinctive sound has managed to capture the attention of a broad and diverse audience .
The musical director of the top alternative radio station in Romania named us in a television interview :"best music act for export" .
We were the first group to ever perform live on radio Guerrilla's show, Guerrilive, after only 6 months of activity. :)
Last but not least, we are a group of multi-instrumentists: BAZOOKA (producer, plays drums, clarinet, keys), PRINTZU (electric guitar, bass), ADITA ( keys, acoustic guitar, sampler) and CHRISTIE (vocalist, sampler) so there is a lot going on on stage that we would love to share.
All tracks were written by Christie and Bazooka,
"Play", "Carry Me" and "One Chance" - written by Christie, Bazooka, Printzu
Special guests :DJ Batz ( Rotopercutor)- recorded turntables on "Play", "Shout"
Eduard Serei - recorded guitar on "Play"
All tracks were produced, recorded, edited, mixed and mastered by Bazooka
A mix of soul, jazz, dance, electro and more, taking you through the 40's with their clarinet and Club Jordan to the 80's with their synths, while well anchored in the present by the clever production.
making good music and putting on a good show :)
