The Flash! (PL)
The Flash! formed up in 2014 in Cracow on the initiative of Slawomir Pezda. The trio mostly perform original compositions by their leader. The Flash! experiment with acoustic and electric music and play with sound and form in an unconventional way. Their music is a mixture of such genres as punk, rock, noise, drum´n´bass, free jazz and collective improvisation. Due to their liveliness and fusion of various musical genres, the band is an attractive prospect for a wide range of listeners. In addition, this is the one of few offbeat bands of this kind on the European music stage.
The Flash! recorded a new live album (Bujaka w gumiakach) at Club Alchemia in Kraków during their recent concert tour featuring Dustin Carlson, an outstanding New York guitarist. The album contains the latest compositions, part of their older material in new arrangements and one cover. The premiere of the album will take place during this festival.
