A discovery from Austria – indie rock duo Cari Cari – will be playing Pohoda 2019. Radio FM4 listed their track “Summer Sun” in Top 3 of the 2018 Best Tracks. Volume compares them to The xx or The Kills in their review. The Rolling Stone named them the biggest surprise of last year’s Primavera. The duo is singer and drummer Stephanie Widmer and guitarist Alexander Köck. They have lived in London, Hamburg and also Melbourne, from where the singer sneaked didgeridoo and jaw harp into their songs. Their debut was EP titled AMERIPPINDUNKLER. Songs from this EP appeared in TV series Shameless and The Magicians.
At the beginning of November, they released their first LP record Anaana and sold out all vinyl copies within two weeks. All their shows planned for the first part of their tour supporting their new album got sold out as well and several of their concerts taking place across European cities had to move to bigger venues. ORF has recently nominated them to participate in European Broadcasting Union’s project called New European Songbook where they should represent Austria via their new song. They caught our attention in Macedonia at Taksirat Festival and will have a chance to prove their qualities to the audience at Pohoda in six months.
