LIFE GB

LIFE

The indie-punk band LIFE will also play at Pohoda 2019. In June 2017, they self-released their debut Popular Music which BBC 1 included in the selection of the best albums of the year. According to Kerrang! magazine, the album "stokes the fires of change", and the German Musikexpress jokes in the review that "if there’s something good about Brexit, it's just a new punk wave in England." The review also includes IDLES, to whom LIFE probably feel the closest (next spring they’re going on a tour together). Anger and aggression can be felt in the engagement with which they criticize the situation in society, but at the same time, there is also a great deal of vitality in their music.

They focus their attention on young people as the most important resource of the country that the elite decision-makers disregard. LIFE aren’t just a mouthpiece for a voiceless generation (as Louder Than War writes about them). Don’t expect punk-rockers who just diss about social injustices from the comfort of their warm rehearsal room. Band members also dedicate their time to young people from marginalized groups, working on frontline for the charity organization Warren Youth Project in the poor parts of Hull. You’ll receive all the anger, energy and joy of the young British generation first-hand from the band LIFE at the Trenčín airport.
