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 and Europavox. They already have been showcasing at Eurosonic Nooderslag 2019 and they are announced to perform at The Great Escape and Primavera Pro.
5K HD is fronted by well-known band members from Kompost 3: Martin Eberle (trumpets), Benny Omerzell (keys), Manu Mayr (bass) and Lukas König (drums) provide creative and visionary experimental jazz. Singer Mira Lu Kovacs adds as a delicate, yet strong, idiosyncratic, and original voice. Fine ingredients for an excellent cocktail.
In 2019 busy 5K HD are part of the toursupport programme “Focus Acts“. Versatile Mira Lu Kovacs is also curator of the well established Popfest Wien 2019.
