Monoskop (CZ)

The band of five musicians and a woman vocalist builds its music on trip-hop, yet they develop it in an original way into atmospheric and harmonically striking songs. The band’s hallmark feel also springs from the unusual combination of instruments as the main melodic instruments are a violin and a trumpet. The band Monoskop has kept its current lineup since 2009; the first official record – an eponymous EP – was released in 2011.
