Singing mostly about weapons and love, КУКЛА is constantly fighting battles within herself and with the outer world.
Her pop sound captures the current gender non conforming youth of the West, while still maintaining a special Slavic introspection and fatalism. There’s a clear stylistic resemblance to Milosevic era Serbian female singers and a nod to R&B goddesses of the Bush era America.
On the stage she lets her guards down, enriches her distinctive sound with dazzling visuals and puts her heart on the plate.
Bon apetit! Welcome to the КУКЛА experience.
Noise pop, improvisational kraut and ethereal darkwave merge in psychedelic lo-fi balance. The perfectly chaotic focus of the Ljubljana-based art duo is maintained by Kristin Čona and Andrej Pervanje. Their experimental audio-visual experience plays with the hypnotic rhythm of guitars, a retro matrix and provocative singing about the banality of everyday life, often pierced by resounding cries and sharp whistling. Their unconventional musical exploration can be found on four albums. The most recent two, “bunkerpop” (2017) and “kva je s tabo” (2018), released by Slovenian DIY label ŠOP Records, along with touring as part of the Radio Študent Klubski Maraton concert cycle, have made Balans one of the more prominent representatives of the local underground scene.FB event
