PONY PACK (rrriot, Amsterdam)
„Pop punk or punk pop? New wave, garage or grunge? Labels are for those with NO imagination. WE make music according to our own impulses. YOU can decide for yourself.“ Pony Pack are from Amsterdam and their music has been referred to as punk, garage, grunge and even surf. Whatever label you want to stick on it, one thing is for sure, these three ladies with four-letter names like to play it fast and loud, with a hefty dose of poppy melodies and angular rhythms thrown in for good measure.
ABGESAGT (Punk, Ruhrpott/Rheinland)
Von Abgesågt kannst du dich nicht nur super anschrein‘ lassen, du kannst auch einfach ein bisschen zuhören oder an die Decke gucken. Irgendwas zwischen Trash & Punk kommt ohne Lade aber dafür mit Schub aus dem trauten Rheinland/Ruhrpott. Monster unterm‘ Bett? ABGESAGT!!
THE SHONDES (indie, Broolyn, New York)
Since their 2006 inception, The Shondes – Louisa Solomon (vocals, bass), Elijah Oberman (violin), Temim Fruchter (drums) and Fureigh (guitar) – have been forging a style that combines hard-driving, moody elements of rock with shimmering, joyous elements of pop, and truly foregrounds the violin as a rock instrument. With Solomon’s raw emotion at the helm, they seamlessly meld influences as disparate as classical and traditional Jewish music and punk rock. The band is known and loved for their live energy and their affection for one another and what they do together. The band’s moniker, “Shonde,” is the Yiddish word for disgrace, and they have always talked candidly about being unashamed of who they are and standing up for what they believe in.
