HOLY MOTORS is a Tallinn, Estonia based dark twang & reverb band from a nonexistent movie. It bows to engines and echos and film-directors. Cinematic suspension is often more than not what drives the band towards a melody and meaning. In it´s time, HOLY MOTORS has supported Sic Alps, Dirty Fences and Mystery Train. The latter a movie by Jim Jarmusch.
Backwards Charm is an indie/dream-pop quartet based in Salzburg and Vienna, Austria. Having performed live in Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Ireland, Italy and Belgium they have managed to draw the attention of a diversity of audiences with their simple but effective songwriting; the thoughtful arrangement of cynically romanticizing lyrics combined with pure and catchy melodies evokes a feeling of being stuck somwhere in between reality and dream.
