VLASTA POPIĆ – “Kvadrat” (2015)

1 min read


Second album by Croatian trio VLASTA POPIĆ brings more of their beloved signature indie-punk-noise-nowave-pop expression, but this time with a darker, more sinister edge to it. The record sounds more ambitious, thought-out and coherent compared to the earlier release, and it does so by utilizing much dirtier, distorted and noisier playing and production. The combined female/male singalongs and shouts add true energy to occasionally melodic, oftentimes jangly atmosphere created by the underlying instrumental psychedelia. As far as similarities and influences go, “Kvadrat” may be related to quite a few artists such as Repetitor, Fugazi, Shellac, Nikki Louder, etc.

Live promotion of new VLASTA POPIĆ album will happen on Thursday, 5th February 2015 in Gromka in Ljubljana, as a part of MENT Ljubljana – showcase festival & conference  (4th-6th February 2015). It will be followed by bunch of shows in Slovenia & Croatia and Balkan tour in April:
