Earlier this year, Black Midi released their last new single 7-eleven. They went to Eurosonic 2019 as the band into which perhaps the greatest expectations were put. With combining (almost) sold-out concerts with an ambiguous output on social networks, they have created a huge hype around them. This was fully confirmed even at the Europe's largest showcase, ESNS. After the festival they became the second most booked band of Eurosonic.
In late June, they released their debut Schlagenheim, which brought them a nomination for the prestigious Mercury Prize and fantastic reviews (with an average rating of 82 out of 100 for Metacritic). According to Paste magazine, the album is: “experimental, genre unclassifiable, extremely noisy with exceptional results. Schlagenheim is much more than just special, it is the only one of its kind - a masterpiece. ”The Ode to their address confirmed the math-rock storm last month at Fuga in Bratislava. Black Midi will return to Slovakia in early July when they perform at Pohoda 2021.
