Tess Parks & Anton Newcombe return to the big stage for a one off performance at our final Mellochfest at Bassy. We last saw Tess and Anton live together in Berlin in 2015, so it might be a while before the likes of these two come around again.
The Underground Youth: Started in 2008 as the creative project of Craig Dyer, The Underground Youth’s discography explores a blend of darkly cinematic psychedelia and raw post-punk music.
Bechamel: We just saw these guys at 8MM two weeks ago and they blew our mind so we invited them on over to Mellochfest. Bechamel are a four-piece garage-punk band based in Berlin. Salty, creamy and smooth since 2017
Chikiss aka Galina Ozeran: Russian singer -songwriter, composer, producer and synth diva. Over the last ten years she has recorded a remarkable range of music – from contemporary piano and electro-acoustic pieces to nostalgic synth-pop songs, shoegaze, noise-rock and trippy electronic avant-pop – her latest release ‘New Season’ is out now on Not Not Fun Records and we are very happy to welcome this hypnotic performer to the Mellochfest side stage.
The Wire Magazine says: “Chikiss’s music is dream pop turned inside out, just as Filthy Hun are inverting space rock and Swanox are pouring acid down Americana’s gullet.”
It is of course a bittersweet event for us, as not only does this mark our 50th 8MM Musik Night, but with Bassy ostensibly closing forever and ever in May, it will truly mark the end of an era. Expect one goddamn sloppy hell of an afterparty at 8MM.
