Pohoda will also host the energetic blues-rock band Youniverse. Last year they released their debut called CMYK which was nominated for four awards at the Radio_head awards, specifically for the album of the year, for the debut of the year, and two songs for the single of the year. The band is also known for their extravagant performances. You can look forward to seeing one at Pohoda 2019, too.
Strong riffs and funk-rock vocals with ecstatic dance moves are the basis of their work. After two years of playing gigs, doing music experiments, projects and the EP, they released the conceptual debut CMYK last September. It was introduced and released in their native Trenčín in their own temporary pop-up shop. According to Hudba.sk, the album is a "hypermodern upgrade of shabby blues-rock, which has the potential to attract the attention abroad as well. At the same time, it’s an excellent example of music and production self-sufficiency, creativity and precision of one of the most interesting young Slovak bands.” The PopMatters stated they prove yet again that warm music paired to electronics makes for truly compelling sound. They played with the Dutch band My Baby in Bratislava at the end of the last year, will open for Skunk Anansie in August, and in the meantime they'll also perform at our festival.
