/kry is an instrumental trio, formed in 2019 by Alexander Yannilos, Mona Matbou Riahi and Philipp Kienberger in Vienna. The band’s eccentric blend of contemporary grooves, avant-garde jazz and electronica leaves it completely untethered from any single genre and defying categorisation.
/kry’s sound is a revelry of simplicity and intuition, a celebration of complexity and control and an intricate fusion of its individual members’ broad musical spectrum. The first album was recorded by the drummer Alexander Yannilos in 2021 at ORF Radio Funkhaus, who also mixed, mastered and published the record on his label Freifeld. In 2022 they were selected for NASOM, the New Austrian Sound of Music 2023/24 edition.
