While we simply couldn’t find the time to make another PELAGIC FEST happen this year, we’re more than happy too announce a very special Pelagic showcase: a fine evening representing some of our recent releases, held at the same location where PELAGIC FEST was taking place last year, and featuring 4 very special artists from 4 continents.
Opening the night are TANGLED THOUGHTS OF LEAVING from Perth Australia, who will be presenting their new lineup with the amazing new drummer Gracie Smith for the first time in Europe. Expect heavy, dark instrumental rock with a strong experimental and improvisational element. Incredible musicians!
LOST IN KIEV from Paris are going to release their Pelagic debut album „Persona“ in April. Raw and driven, yet oozing with thick synth textures and a great sense of melancholy and drama, „Persona” sees LOST IN KIEV further expand their own idiosyncratic take on cinematic, http://bit.ly/pelagiclabelnight2019contemporary post rock.
LABIRINTO from Sao Paulo are Brazil’s one and only instrumental rock band, their live show praised by Rolling Stone as “one of the most powerful experiences in the Brazilian independent scene“. The band has a 13 years history, and their latest effort „Divino Afflante Spiritu“ is an album of dense and menacing atmospherics, textural drones carefully layered over and blended into the heavy guitar riffs’s shimmering, beautiful distortion-scapes.
Closing the night are China’s biggest instrumental rock band WANG WEN, who sold out almost all shows on their latest tour in their home country, in 1.000 to 1.500 cap venues. The band have already impressed the Berlin crowd at Berghain Kantine last year, and they are now returning to present their 8th(!) studio album „Invisible City“ to the European audience.
We are looking forward to celebrating these truly outstanding bands with you, to bridge the gap between Pelagic Fest 2018 and 2020! Be there early, you DO NOT want to miss one note of TANGLED THOUGHTS OF LEAVING’s mass!
