5K HD is the moniker of Austrian jazz band Kompost 3 and singer Mira Lu Kovacs of Schmieds Puls. They combine jazz, sound experiments, pop, and cinematic surprises. The ensemble is also expert at creating a subtle kind of funk. This supergroup, that doesn’t really want to be called that, released its debut “And To In A” to international critical acclaim in 2017, followed by lauded performances at Ment Ljubljana, Eurosonic Festival 2019, The Great Escape and Primavera Sound. In summer 2019, they announced their new album “High Performer”, to be released 6 September, and shows at Haldern Pop Festival, Südtirol Jazz Festival and Reeperbahn Festival 2019.
5K HD consists of Martin Eberle (trumpets), Benny Omerzell (keys), Manu Mayr (bass) and Lukas König (drums) who provide creative and visionary experimental jazz and is fronted by singer Mira Lu Kovacs, who adds as a delicate, yet strong, idiosyncratic, and original voice. Fine ingredients for an excellent cocktail. In 2019, 5K HD are part of the toursupport programme “Focus Acts“. Mira Lu Kovacs is also co-curating the Popfest Wien in July 2019.
