BLEIB MODERN (D)
There is no repose from the cathartic sounds from Bleib Modern – sounds that dredge up the darkest recesses of the heart with their ceaseless explorations around the personal and emotive responses to life.
Throbbing bass lines lead the onslaught of hypnotic reverb, penetrating riffs, mechanical drumming and visceral vocals that expose the very bones of emotion or lack thereof. Founded by Philipp Läufer in 2014 as a solo project, it wasn’t until after 2015 when Vinz, Peter, Leo and Tommy joined.
With their fourth album set to take off in 2018 Bleib Modern has toured heavily across Europe and Scandinavia.
Garage guitar breaker astride between post-punk and psychedelia, swirling in heady krautrock loops. The beauty of strong guitar riffs, noisy delight. And inbetween those sounds, from time to time, there are hidden brief lyrical shouts – half-haiku, half-Indian poetry. Sýček are one of the greatest talents in Czech clubs. Their new album _I._ .”was also marked as the guitar album of the year by many reporters in CZ from Alter Echo, Full Moon, Beehy.Pe and so on. Band i also nominated for the “Discovery of the Year” in the Vinyl 2017.
