From: Vienna, Austria
Wolfram Leitner, Alexander Diesenreiter, Roland Reiter, Joerg Skischally and Heinz Wolf celebrate a highly appealing, but also very sophisticated version of alternative guitar music between the poles of post and kraut rock, which is reminiscent of the early 90s with iconic bands such as Sonic Youth. With a sense for beautiful melodies and clever arrangements, M185 create an overall sound that bangs from the speakers and immediately captivates the listener. Exempt from any opulence, they create songs that especially live off steadily increasing suspense and an extremely exciting interaction between raw and noisy passages and restrained quiet moments. In their music, the Viennese formation manages to a cover the span between a certain musical catchiness on the one hand, and a very high sophistication on the other.
