From Sensitive to Explosive – 20 Additions to the Concert Programme!
We’ve got a blast of newly confirmed acts! Leading the list this time around: Aurora (photo), Leslie Clio, Palma Violets, Metz, Lucy Rose, Eli Paperboy Reed, plus many others.
Wild, wolfish, wonderful – we’re looking forward to Aurora (photo) from Norway. Eighteen-years-old and a true discovery, Aurora has proven herself with her just out “Running with the Wolves”. Dusky pop songs from a rising northern light.
Leslie Clio promises us “modern soul-pop with a touch of retro”. The singer hails from Hamburg, lives in Berlin, and draws musical inspiration from the world over. Leslie dances heartache away – and with her we head into summer with a spring in our step.
The four boys from Palma Violets sound like garage or dimly-lit pub. Nowadays, the London band is up on the big stages, firing up crowds with their indie rock. The Reeperbahn Festival is the perfect place for them: “Danger in the Club” is the name of their new album – and it’s dangerously good.
Up next is Metz, a hard rocking trio from Toronto whose songs are loud and in-your-face. Formed in 2008, the band played up to 150 concerts per year. There’s a lot of energy emanating from the stage – with audiences going wild.
We’re blown away by the porcelain voice of Lucy Rose. She’s currently enchanting listeners across Britain with her new album “Work It Out” – and in September she’ll do the same in Hamburg.
With a sound that descends from all the great 60s soul singers, Eli Paperboy Reed is a tremendous on-stage presence: one of his songs is called “Explosion” – and his fascinating live performances are indeed explosive.
