HYPE! / Bio

The five-member band "HYPE", formed in the fall of 2009. plays alternative rock with the sincerity and energy of a garage band, fanatically committed to total authenticity of expression. Their sound image is a sublimation of classic rock and proto punk, and at the same time a repercussion of vibe from the most inspiring eras of the music scenes in Detroit, Seattle and Los Angeles, molded into uncompromising and straight-up 21. Century rock.
"HYPE" submits everything to music, recklessly passing through the walls and genres. Releasing their songs from usual definitions and categorization, they allow each and every one of them to have a unique sound. This band has no political or ideological agenda but they passionately threw themselves into black humor, satirical penetration and attempt to break down taboos of the mass culture.
Explosive mixture of growling guitars, drum groove patterns, melodic bass lines and vocals in the spectrum of destructive subtleties to pure aggression, also unlimited quantities of always welcome subversiveness, will not leave anyone indifferent.
In four years of their existence they performed on numerous major festivals of the region – from Exit, through Warriors Dance festival, Concert of the year, INmusic festival, and all that without an official release, thanks to the raw energy and their unique approach to authentic rock and roll music.
Others about “Hype!”:
,,They mixed their alternative sound with garage in a series of witty songs, and the whole story
is leaded by the powerful vocals of their front-woman.…
A band that will rule the regional scene in a few years!” (Muzika.hr)
,, There is this much-needed female, raw energy and powerful vocals in the style of Juliette Lewis! Female power that will hopefully
once change the world for the better.” (Autinomija.info)

“Hype!” realeased their album in March 2013. under the record label “Odličan Hrčak“. Announced by the single “Erase”, their debut album is simply called ,,Hype” and was recorded in collaboration with "Beogradska škola zvuka" (www.beogradskaskolazvuka.com) and produced by Ivan Kljajić.
Equally valuable was the help of studio "Hertz" from Novi Sad (http://www.facebook.com/studiohertz) and the fantastic young sound engineer Kuranji Filip, as well as studio "B & B" in Belgrade who are all members of one perfect team that everyone would want to work with.
"Hype!" had from the very start the full support of the editorial board of the cult TV show "Gruvanje" Radio Television of Vojvodina.

Zrenjaninsko-pancevacka četvorka „Hype!”, nastala 2009.god. praši alternativni rok s iskrenošću i energijom garažnog benda. Njihova zvučna slika je sublimacija klasičnog roka i protopanka, ali i odjek bunta devedesetih na scenama Sijetla, Los Anđelesa i Detroita, uobličena u beskompromisan i svež rokenrol 21. veka.
„Hype!” sve podređuju muzici i stoga bezobzirno prolaze kroz zidove žanrova. Oslobađajući pesme krute forme, dopuštaju da svaka vodi svoju priču, svoj život. Bend nema političku ili ideološku agendu, ali strasno i sarkastično razobličava fabule masovne kulture.
Eksplozivna mešavina režećih gitara, bubnjarskih paterna koncipiranih na gruvu, melodičnih bas pasaža i vokala u spektru od razorne suptilnosti do čiste agresije, kao i neograničena količina uvek dobrodošle subverzivnosti, nikoga neće ostaviti ravnodušnim.
Za četiri godine koliko postoje nastupili su na najznačajnijim festivalima u regionu – od EXIT-a, preko “Warriors dance festival”-a, “Koncerta godine”, “INmusic festival”-a… I sve to bez zvaničnog izdanja, zahvaljujući sirovoj energiji i jedinstvenom pristupu autorskom rokenrolu.
Drugi o bendu “Hype!”:
,,Svoj alternativni zvuk ispremiješali su djelomično s garažom u
niz britkih pjesama, a cijelu priču predvodi zgodna frontmenica moćnog vokala.…
Bend koji će kroz koju godinu harati regionalnom scenom!” (Muzika.hr)
,,Tu je i preko potrebna ženska, sirova energija i njen snažni vokal u stilu Juliette Lewis! Ženska snaga koja će nadam se jednom promeniti ovaj svet na bolje.” (Autinomija.info)

„Hype!” su: lid-vokal Dragana Mijatović aka Gaga Lee, bubnjar Darko Kurjak („Partibrejkers”, „Memlah”), gitarista Pavle Kirćanski („Impurita”) i basista Miloš Kralj ("Memlah"). Kao pojačanje, bend je dobio počasnog člana, gitaristu Dalibora Kurjaka (član nekadašnjeg benda "Gluve Kučke").
“Hype!” u Martu 2013. objavljuju album za etiketu “Odličan hrčak”. Najavljen singlom “Erase”, ovaj debi jednostavno nazvan ,,Hype!”, snimljen je u saradnji sa Beogradskom školom zvuka (www.beogradskaskolazvuka.com) i producentom Ivanom Kljajićem. Jednako vredna je pomoć studija “Hertz” iz Novog Sada (http://www.facebook.com/studiohertz) i sjajnog mladog inženjera zvuka Filipa Kuranjia, kao i studija “B&B” iz Beograda, svi oni čine jednu savršenu ekipu sa kojom bi svako poželeo da sarađuje.
“Hype!” od samog početka ima punu podršku redakcije kultne emisije “Gruvanje” Radio televizije Vojvodine.
Album “Hype!” dostupan je u prodavnici ploča “Pinball wizard records” (TC “Eurocentar”, Makedonska 30) i u “Dallas music shop”-u, a moguće ga je naručiti i na sajtu izdavača: odlicanhrcak.com
