Happy to welcome this outstanding Synthwave-Duo back in Vienna on their 6 week long Europe tour!
Unknown Child (Budapest/Hungary, SHAPE platform)
Erika Szurcsik is a multifunctional graphic artist deeply rooted in music and poetic imagery: her songs are expressionist human landscapes, her visuals are fragments of poetic narratives. Mainly known as the vocalist and intense live performer of Budapest based art punk band Gustave Tiger, in her solo project Unknown Child she represents quite the opposite with her inner persona. Unknown Child is stripped down into soulful singer-songwriter loneliness, while her looped and multilayered hypnotic live melancholia opens up a wide range of sounds, distortions and harmonic interferences with the ethereal and deeply intimate sung words of a wonderfully touching voice. After creating a new sound while adapting the world of her debut ep (2014) and first full length (2015) into a touchingly deep live performance Unknown Child returns with a new recorded material and collaborations. Very happy to welcome her exclusively in Vienna!
Aviadoras (Vienna/Espania&Chile, Yakamoz)
