TV On The Radio, Ratatat, Kamp! and Low Roar - new Kraków Live Festival artists!
TV On The Radio are one of the most influential bands, loved by critics, of the last 10 years. Every album of this New York band, starting from their breakthrough debut, receives a very warm welcome and pressures listeners to take a fresh look on apparently cliche genres. TV On The Radio's remarkable discography item is 2008's "Dear Science", now listed as one of the best album of the Noughties. TVOTR's eclectic sound counts David Bowie and Trent Reznor, among others, as its fans. Last year, the band shared their new album "Seeds" and it's with this release that they appear at Kraków Live Festival.
Another remarkable event will be the first Polish performance by Ratatat, who create almost exclusively instrumental albums, where they experiment with rock, psychedelia and electronica. Just a few days ago, the group announced a new album, so Ratatat's presence in Kraków earns extra importance. "Magnifique" is the first release from the NY duo in over 5 years, and its leading single "Cream On Chrome" premiered at Coachella. According to the announcement, on "Magnifique", Ratatat return to their guitar roots, taking us places reigned by riffs from classic albums from Daft Punk, with whom Ratatat toured.
Kamp! took over a year and a half off. They disappeared from concert halls and media to record a new album. This summer, they also make a live return, and will probably test excerpts from their premiere material with the audience, although their last year's "Baltimore" EP (another New York detail - the Cascine label) is still up to date.
