Kulturhaus Insel Berlin
(Alt-Treptow 6, 12345 Berlin, S-Bhf. Treptower Park + S-Bhf. Plänterwald)
The band was formed in Venice in July ’21, influenced by nu-gaze, dream pop and psych sounds, GLAZYHAZE range from dark to dreamy and ethereal atmospheres. The band is composed by Irene Moretuzzo (vocals and guitar), Lorenzo Dall’Armellina (lead guitar), Francesco Giacomin (drums) and Vsevolod Prokhorov (bass and backing vocals).
Their debut album “Just fade Away” out on May 19, 2023 and anticipated by the two singles „A Glimpse of Light“ and „Saltless”, is an invitation to let go and to be able to recognize, accept and express one’s feelings within a society which teaches to repress them by marking them as flaws. The album was recorded between Italy, England and the USA with the participation of Andrea Volpato (New Candys) and Paolo Canaglia (Act Cool Records); released digitaly by Slimer Records, published by Hoodooh and promoted by Lagoonar Enterprises.
During 2022/2023 they played more than 40 dates at festivals and clubs throughout Italy, supporting bands like New Candys, The Spyrals, Hater and more, gaining excellent feedback from the public and critics.
MERSEY SKYS four-piece sound is a throw back to the mid 80/90’s Madchester era. The band combine the colorful, melodic influences of The Stone Roses with the guitar driven sounds of Kasabian and Ride. Expect a high energy live show that shimmers with heavy shoegaze influences and live improvisation.
„Call KITTY SOLARIS the Indie Queen of Berlin, a musical shapeshifter, a voice for empowerment, or just one of the most daring musicians/producers working today. All would be the truth. Solaris is as much about the Berlin music scene as she is about social equality and fairness for women in the music industry. Quiet a full plate for anyone to take on, but this artist, promoter, and record company boss makes it look almost easy… or necessary, if you will. And that is the overall vibe and messaging throughout „Girls & Music“. Of course, all of this is interwoven in between Solaris’ trademark multiple genres traversing, bizarre and danceable quirks, and weighty, to-the-point lyricism. Pure Solaris through and through.
Highlights are hard to single out on this solid tip-to-toe Damian Press collaboration album. But if you twist my arm hard enough, I’d suggest you take the far-out opener „As the World Stops Turning“, the ethereal carnival-vibed „Mystery Girl“, and (secretly my favorite track), „Disco Blues“ for a spin… or, just be a mensch and go headlong into the full LP: Its the right thing to do… Over the past several years, I’ve made it openly clear that Kitty Solaris is one of the most exciting creators in the music world. And „Girls & Music“ fully reinforces my stance… Find out why and stream the entire LP here at the GTC.“
