The band Autopark is coming to the 19th Street Musicians Festival, bringing longing as firm as concrete.
These shoegazing pioneers of the Serbian music scene with a female lead-singer are not slaves to a certain style, but they have remained true to their deeply personal poetics stripped of all paroles and common places. So far, they have released four albums, in which they have moved through diverse sounds ranging from loud distorted guitar sounds through playful electro to Latino rhythms inserted into unpretentious pop. Ognjenka’s songs are radically sensitive, sometimes (auto)ironical, and even when they are performed in front of a larger audience, it is always a one-on-one meeting.
We got to know about them through a song ‘Na ivici’ (‘On Edge’), which, maybe, tells us that the world is on edge, and that although living on the edge is dangerous , it is the only place of freedom, where it is possible to love and be loved.
