Fusion Stage / Thursday, July 12 2012
HYPE! was formed in the fall of 2009 by Darko Kurjak (drums), Miloš Kralj (bass), Dragana Mijatović – Gaga Lee (vocals) and Pavle Kirćanski (guitars).
This quartet plays Alternative Rock with sincerity and energy of a garage band, fanatically committed to total authenticity of expression. Their sound image is a sublimation of Classic Rock and Proto-Punk, and at the same time repercussion of vibe from the most inspiring eras of the music scenes in Detroit, Seattle and Los Angeles, moled into uncopromising and straight-up 21st century Rock.
HYPE submit everything to music, releasing their songs from usual definitions and categorization, allowing each and every one of them to have a unique sound.
This band has no political or ideological agenda but they passionatelly threw themselves into black humor, satirical penetration and atempt to break down taboos of mass culture and that’s something that takes significant place in the HYPE’s lirycs.
Explosive mix of growling guitars, drum groove patterns, melodic bass lines and vocals in the spectrum of destructive subtleties to pure aggression, also unlimited quantities of always welcome subversiveness, will not leave anyone indifferent.
