The two final countdown weeks begin and here you are the must-watch bands of this edition of Sónar festival. So. Excited. (Here you are some live videos, more exciting that the official music ones).
1- TEN WALLS
We’re waiting for you and most certainlly you’ll make us sweat joy and cry excitement because we’re decided to be in front row sending you ethilic kisses with lots of energy. We’ll also trust in your wind section to cope with this 16 days left for Sónar. Marijus: thanks for coming.
Apart from the fact that we think his press picture is on the spot, Rone is one of the big names of Sónar 2015; that “depressive yet hopeful plus filled with bromance” rhythm will cause hugs and hundreds of promises of drink meet ups (but this time for real) amongst the audience. There’s no Moderat, but there’s Rone.
Who’s also called “the discovery”. Without the shadow of a doubt, this experimental experimentative experiment is going to be one of the festival highlights; acoustic stlye and the right musicality brought by two of the big names of tomorrow. A great chance to start following their paths, darlings.
4- HENRIK SCHWARZ
Hail to Germany! This year, Schwarz will close the Sónar by Day section on Saturday, at around 8.30pm, which sounds fabulous to transport our minds to the very Berghain club and try the local cuisine.
Expectation, intrigue and nerves to watch this artist orgy live. Siriusmo + Modeselektor + Pfadfinderei visuals are the new compound that promise to let us in an awe on Saturday night. In this case, three will never be dangerous.
6- LAURENT GARNIER
That’s how you do it; this is how you close a festival in a good way. After 25 years of career, our beloved Laurent comes back to Sónar to make us ask for more and enhance our afterparty options like a raver in the good ole days.
7- THE 2 BEARS
As not everything needs to be the beat, The 2 Bears will “calm” things down at the dancefloor on Friday night. Influenced by their happy synth-pop, we’ll be able to see confetti where there’s dirt and we’ll drink glitter instead of amonnia. This is the time, boys.
