Some of you have already read the sad news on Facebook, The Give it ups had to cancel their performance as one of the members cannot make it to the festival due to health issues in the family. We wish you all the best, get well soon!
But now let's look forward to the sunny side of this post and of our line-up, which is finally complete!
The first night of Indie Pop Days 2012 will see yet another act who is
playing in Germany for the first time. Our headliner on Friday will be
Azure Blue, a solo project of Swedish Tobias Isaksson, known to
indie popsters for his former Labrador based bands Irene and Laurel Music.
On his first
album "Rule of Thirds" which was released last year on the
Sweden-based Hybris-Label and internationally on Matinee Records, he
is leaving the grand Indiepop sound of his Labrador releases behind
to enter a world of airy synthpop, much to the enjoyment of everyone
who likes analogue synthesizers and drum-machines. Once you hear one
of his tunes, be sure to have it stuck in your head - proof is a click
away, "dreamy eyes" and "little confusions", both singles from
"Rule of Thirds".
Fans of New Order, Air France, The Go-Betweens, The Cure, Sarah and/or
current favourites from Sweden like The Radio Dept. have something to
look forward to.
