Tenta präsentiert ihr neues Album W.E.I.R.D. Subtopia.
Support: Places [CZE]
This group of five from Ostrava started in 2010 and gradually worked their way up to the indie-rock present that can’t deny either post-rock or shoegaze influences. After 3 EPs the band came up with the debut album Distant Edges (X Production, 2016) and single Goodbye to Me (Traveller) (2017), produced by Tomáš Neuwerth. Dreamy atmospheric landscapes with the urgent vocals of Eva Konečná remind us of British bands associated with the label 4AD. PLACES have performed at major Czech festivals (Colours of Ostrava, Metronome, Rock for People), supported Wolf Alice in Prague and played shows also in Austria and Hungary.
In 2016 the four musicians of TENTA released a very diverse album of modern rock music. The atypical setting of two bassist creates an intriguing sound spectrum, which is augmented by delicate drum grooves and a very unique and captivating voice. Even though most of their music is not particularly conventional, the musicians still manage to make it accessible for the usual listener. As a result the single “King of Norway” released in 2018 achieved a lot of attention and got awarded on 5 different international film festivals for its outstanding dystopian music video. But most of all TENTA is a very ambitious live band that leads it’s audience to a place of emotional extravaganza. On their latest concerts they also introduced two new songs “LOVE” and “Kallipolis”, which give a striking hint on how their new album “W.E.I.R.D. Subtopia” (released on the 15th of March in 2019) is going to sound like.
