One of the most intriguing regional acts right now, Croatian emo-macho group Svemirko, whose fresh sound and unforgettable concert performances swept up listeners and critics alike, is coming back to Ljubljana to present its heavily anticipated second album. They’ll be joined by the young Croatian group Pseća Plaža, presenting its psychedelic surf vibe in Slovenia for the first time.
Svemirko is everything you could want and get from a pop band. It’s a Croatian macho with emotions. It’s the mystery of the cosmos in the palm of your hand, if only you dare take it. It’s eclectically avant-garde dance punk that immediately worms its way into your ear. It’s the 1980s as remembered by those who were born after 1990. It’s synths and sentiment. It’s a perfectly balanced combination of feelings, knowledge and quality. It’s a Balkan Mac DeMarco drinking with Ariel Pink in Darko Rundek/s tavern. It’s a “wedding band on too much cocaine” (Radio Študent). It’s a night-time fling in broad daylight. It’s dropped pants onstage and jaws hitting the floor below. It’s Marko, Antonijo, Marin, Branimir and Bojan. It’s a new album and old hits. It’s the smell of Vanilija and it’s Tunguzija. It’s unmissable. It’s MENT Ljubljana at Menza pri koritu in February and Level Up at Channel Zero last year. And it’s Kino Šiška in September.
Croatian audio-visual trio Pseća Plaža, renamed this year from Dog’s Beach as a sign of support for the local scene, is made up by Smelly Feet DOG, Kopito Zla and die Zoone. Their music is filled with the endless quest for warmth and softness, they released their psychedelic summerish debut album Honolulu in 2017, and a new record is on the way. They’ve warmed up for My Baby, as well as already played with Svemirko. They say their last show together was pure insanity, so they can hardly wait to play together again – and we’re very eager as well.
