KRISTEN, a Polish band relentlessly performing and recording since the late 1990s, is one of the most captivating and bewildering underground rock acts you will have the chance to see. They are definitely a live band – for starters, picture a 210 cm tall and seemingly possessed bass player chanting spells to hypnotic drumming and ominous waves of sound produced by intertwining guitar and synthesizers. These guys mean business and they have what it takes to get you moving.
Acclaimed by music critics and enjoying cult status among aficionados of adventurous rock, Kristen are very difficult to categorize. Their eight albums all differ in sound and approach to composition, and show them constantly developing in unexpected directions. Although their most recent output to date, LAS (Instant Classic, 2016) demonstrates their predilection for trance, minimalism and sudden bursts of noise, God knows where they may be heading this year. One thing is certain – it’s nothing that’s obvious.
