Between energetic live shows and cinematic videos, psych-pop TUYS craft an exuberant mix of artistic sophistication and pop hooks. Their music is accompanied by visual storytelling that explores metafiction and aesthetic satire. The now berlin-based band have toured throughout Europe, playing festivals including MS Dockville, FOCUS Wales, and The Great Escape and have supported The 1975, Everything Everything, The Kooks, and Thirty Seconds To Mars. TUYS are set to tour in the Fall 2022 and spent the summer at Ghost City Recording Studios to record their upcoming album.
“TUYS are quietly making waves across Europe.” – CLASH
The Ferocious Few – 9:30 PM
The Ferocious Few blend high paced rock ‘n roll, folk lyrics, a punk edge and a rockabilly sensibility. Think Nirvana meets Johnny Cash. Their rousing guitar riffs and drum kicks brought the attention of countless stages across America, such as Coachella, SXSW, Lightning in a Bottle, and Burning Man, in addition to tours with renowned artists like Cyndi Lauper, Lynyrd Skynrd, Billy Idol, Mumford and Sons, Moby, plus a stop at the Beatles 50th Anniversary concert in NYC to co-host and perform.
“”Fernandez’s voice, a shellshocked croon that conveyed the sort of wideeyed fear of the almighty that the Band used to conjure 40 years ago.”” – The New York Times
Francis of Delirium – 10:30 PM
(+ Saturday, September 24 / 9:30 PM @ Molotow / Club)
With three EPs, Jana Bahrich’s Francis of Delirium have quickly caught attention, finding champions in the likes of Pitchfork, Stereogum, The FADER, Paste, DIY, The Line of Best Fit, Clash, 6Music, Radio 1, KEXP, NPR and more. She was recently shortlisted for 2022’s highly prestigious ESNS Music Moves Europe Award. Hailed as a Gen Zer excitingly redrawing 90s classic indie rock, a deep admiration for contemporary acts such as Car Seat Headrest and Mitski is also abundantly clear.
