9.1.2015 Live in concert: Musclebound Grotesque

Musclebound Grotesque is a Liverpool/Berlin based trio that formed five years ago. They produce a mixture of catchy tunes, avantgarde allusions and illusory lyrics. The band name is a reference to the 90s classic movie ‘Demolition Man’. Lazy Sunday films are one of their shared obsessions.

‘Neo-unrealistic-pop’ one-man project G.A.T.S (former Ghost and the Song) is one of the most interesting exponents of the Berlin experimental scene. Their sound features long walks along the sea at night; finding a hidden message written inside a wall addressed to your unborn child; having Lovecraft stories read to you by a young child…

Esa Shield’s music builds up with a mix of joyful, dark and sweetly perverse components. Transformation and magic are the striking features of his sound. His compositions are often unpredictable in their course. They start as straight pop songs and slowly turn into something experimental, dark and outlandish implying a strong sense of escaping.
