Crack Cloud CA
Pohoda 2021 will also feature the Canadian multimedia art collective Crack Cloud. According to The Guardian, they sound like a mixture of Gang of Four, Fel Kuti and hip-hop while acting as a survival mechanism (or literally as a rehab, if you like) for their members and fans alike. The newspaper alludes to the fact that the collective was founded by artists from a community of social workers dedicated to harm reduction in the infamous district of Vancouver Downtown Eastside.
The rotating line-up consists of many multidisciplinary artists from all over Canada. Crack Cloud was discovered for us by Tereza Maco who says their dance post-punk is perhaps the most reminiscent of the alternative scene of Brno in the 1980s (Ještě jsme se nedohodli, but in an extraordinarily contemporary form). The Quietus gave their eponymous album 4.5 stars out of five and described their sold out show at London's Moth Club with the following words: "Exhilarating and alarming, pure pain and pleasure combined."
