Music by Bergman: Rat Boy

After making waves with his debut album Scum and the seven-track Civil Disorder, Rat Boy has teamed up with Tim Armstrong for his new project Internationally Unknown.  Separated by 30 years of age and the Atlantic Ocean, Rat Boy and Armstrong sound like the very definition of an odd couple. But they immediately connected on their first phone call, through a shared love for mixing the visceral energy of punk with hip-hop beats. In many ways, it’s hardly surprising: both musicians share similar influences and often reflect on their upbringing in their lyrics. The pair met in Los Angeles and immediately captured three demos on their first day together, with members of The Interrupters backing them on bass and drums. Rat Boy has diverse influences which echo, at various points, The Clash, Beastie Boys, The Prodigy, Rebel MC, Green Day and Run DMC. Standout tracks include the title track which contrasts manic verses with an anthemic downtempo hook; the aggy street-punk rush of opening track Chip on my Shoulder. Tonight in concert at La Nau.

Les muses de La Musa: Sophie Hunger

La cantant i compositora suïssa inicia gira europea amb el seu últim treball discogràfic, “Molecules”; actua a Barcelona en el marc de Curtcircuit. Va començar la seva carrera fa deu anys, durant aquest temps ha tret 6 discs, venut més de 250.000 còpies, recorregut Europa i els EUA i ha estat la primera artista suïssa a tocar en el Festival Glastonbury, entre altres èxits. D’estil eclèctic, la seva música parteix del folk però es barreja amb l’electrònica, especialment amb aquest últim àlbum, el blues, el rock i el jazz. El còctel es completa amb varietat d’idiomes en les seves cançons i multitud d’instruments, des del piano a l’harmònica o el violoncel. Un espectacle únic. Avui a La Nau.

Favourite Gig: Island

Formed over a mutual love for each members’ appreciation of diverse musical genres, ISLAND, who just little over a year ago announced their debut EP – Girl, have bit-by-bit built a reputation as one of London’s most exciting bands.

Their genre-melding, guitar-inflected singles have quickly gained them fans. They’ve finally released their debut album ‘Feels like air‘ that they will play tonight al La Nau.
