Post-Rock, Blackgaze band from Wien, Austria, MAIRA, was formed in 2014 to create music, that leads through landscapes – first barren and eerie, and then visually stunning and fascinating. Waking up in a dark area, dreaming, in the middle of the forest, high trees are taking the light… Nothing, nothing but the cold, darkness, loneliness to feel, far away from any civilization. Chirping birds in the distance. Hope that tomorrow will come… Suddenly a sound pierces through the thick leaves, steady, pulsing. Slowly a melody unfolds… it grows. The heart creates new realms, new expectations, until the melody penetrates everything, the battle begins. The morning arises; the ray of the sun’s first light is winning the battle; so the goddess of dawn pierces the thick leaves, warms the heart… like an island, like an island of the blessed… Such, or similar emotions are to be released by music, joyful but thought-provoking. We invite you to follow us on a road full of myths, in the past, when back then as well as today a small ray of light could make a change. A road everyone experiences differently, a journey into yourself and your heart. I’m falling and I am free!
Berlina are an alt-rock band based in Madrid, Spain, which formed in 2007. Their music touches upon a wide variety of genres, from shoegaze to dream pop, post-rock to psychedelic. Despite the undeniable pop influence, Berlina's music tends to drift towards the experimental. Texture plays a vital role in the band's sound, formed by layers of distortions, ethereal vocals, atmospheric soundscapes and ambitious instrumentals. Composer Alfonso Herrero's lyrics are quite introspective and deal with the constant struggle with shifting emotional states. They have often been compared to Slowdive, Lower Dens, Autolux, Deerhunter, and early The Verve.

The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
