Release Show - Vampyres, TV Nights, The Great Gray Funk
VAMPYRES offer heavy rock for the children of the night. The Sound of the group incorporates elements of psychedelic and kraut influences, that produce a hypnotic trip taking the audience on an uninterrupted journey through the whole set.
TV NIGHTS, the new power trio from western Austria serves your eyes and ears with rough garage rock, shimmering psych pop and a pinch of earthy singer songwriter feeling. Sticky kitschy melodies meet reverb drenched fuzz walls, the Beatles meet Black Sabbath. This is how TV NIGHTS bring their own compositions and the one or other homage to esteemed artists to the stage. Always handmade, always honest, because who likes to be fucked with?
Being a vernacular term for long and foggy winters, it should come as no surprise that the band behind The Great Gray Funk seeks to capture that certain eeriness and darkness with its music. As the band emerged during times of pandemic-induced isolation in late fall of 2020, the name seemed doubly appropriate. Over the next two years, the band made its first live appearances and recorded its debut album, to be released in 2023 via StoneFree Records.
While carrying their influences on their sleeves, the band does not shy away from expanding their sonic horizon through constant experimentation. Doom-loaded riffs, bittersweet melodies and in-your-face drumbeats are just as likely to be found alongside catchy hooks and intricate instrumentation, with the occasional cheeky guitar solo thrown in. Consequently, The Great Gray Funk’s music invites the audience to repeat listenings. There is always something new to find and appreciate.
