Stay Tuned Season Closing Party 2016
with: MUTINY ON THE BOUNTY – THE DISLIKED – SEED TO TREE – ANTIFRAGILE -TUYS – DISTRICT 7 – UMI – D-MILE’Z
The team of Stay Tuned Interviews is inviting you to their first Season Closing Party at Kulturfabrik on 10.12.2016. As the end of the year is approaching rapidly, we’ve invited a selection of the best bands Luxembourg has to offer to organise a big party celebrating local music, the friendship between bands and the countless adventures and memories that came with those. We offer you a wide mix of local talents who all added to Luxembourg’s music scene the past months, from the big headliner groups to the uprising bands to complete newcomers. An evening full of music, fun and special surprises will await you.
Mutiny on the Bounty – math rock
It’s certainly no stretch to assert that there’s currently no bigger, more respected music act in Luxembourg right now than math rock quartet Mutiny On The Bounty. Since releasing their debut LP “Danger Mouth” back in 2009, the act has been cultivating a captivating own brand of melodic and experimental electronic-infused rock music indebted to the likes of Battles and Adebisi Shank. However, their influences range far wider than mere math/post-rock bands. The strobe lights during their show knock you out as hard as their tunes do. No wonder they’re Luxembourg’s biggest deal post-2010.
The Disliked – ska-punk
The Disliked’s reputation for their uncanny ability to begin unhinged parties everywhere imaginable have long exceeded Luxembourg’s national borders and spread to the fiercer French coastal regions. No wonder: These guys have been Luxembourg’s own kind of totally nuts, weird, and slightly maddened magic since at least 2002. Expect them to get you on the same heights as them in December, simply because they always get you there – if you want it or not.
Seed to Tree – indie-folk
If you see people cuddling warm and dancing to express those bubbly feelings foaming up from the depths of their belly, then you’re quite possibly at a Seed To Tree show. This quintet borrows the feel-good elements from similar-minded bands like Mumford and Sons, Beirut, and Fleet Foxes without succumbing to the schmaltz that often plagues indie pop/acoustic acts. Instead, they try to infuse their uplifting acoustic pop with the earnest expression of Damien Rice to squeeze out every bit of emotion from their audience.
Antifragile – math rock
Kind of unofficially considered Mutiny On The Bounty’s successors by many local music fans, Antifragile have obviously been subject to a serious amount of respect and even adoration (earned by their irresistible, intense live sets) albeit having yet to fulfil the high expectations being placed on them with a proper studio debut. Good news for those waiting on that to drop: The band is currently figuring out the necessary details concerning the release of their first EP, so expect them to perform a few new math-y and tastefully melodic post-hardcore tunes during their next shows.
Tuys – indie
Since 2014, Tuys have slowly been evolving into the Luxemburgish indie scene’s epicentre by releasing urgently sincere indie pop roughed up by jittery alternative guitar riffs that pitch them somewhere between Phoenix, The 1975 and The Strokes, and by organising several shows for other indie acts coming from the Greater Region. So whenever you find yourself talking about Luxembourg’s indie scene with a local music fan, don’t be surprised if he namedrops these hungry young musicians at some point.
District 7 – pop-punk
Formed back in 2011, these four young Luxembourgers have been churching out fun and straightforward poppy punk music that owes much of its appeal to catchy scene acts a la Taking Back Sunday, blink-182, Simple Plan, and more, albeit marrying the stylistic choices of those bands with a more obviously defined pop-sensibility. With a new EP set to be released in February 2017, they surely will offer a few insights on their new tracks.
Umi – electro
Umi is a brandnew producer/Dj and former rock musician who is trying to incorporate all he knows about music and vibes into his very own genre of music. His first single Dancing with a Ghost featured ex-Angel At My Table frontwoman Joelle Gelhausen, showing the high potential Umi has. The gig will be his very first solo show for Umi, showcasing his produced tracks.
D-Mile’Z – electro
D-Mile’z knows how to end a good evening. His decks will make you enjoy our last drink during our after-party even more ! How else would you end a good afterparty?
