This supergroup from Vienna is damn serious about one thing: having fun! My Ugly Clementine (pun intended!) is the brainchild of Sophie Lindinger, who already won awards and made waves with her band Leyya. For her new project, the songwriter and producer gathered people around her that she always wanted to work and to play with. The group now features Mira Lu Kovacs (Schmieds Puls, 5K HD), Kathrin Kolleritsch (Kerosin95) and Barbara Jungreithmeier – all of them well known figures in their respective scenes.

Their first show in May 2019 was sold out within 20 hours – whilst no one had even heard a single note of their songs. After the release of the singalong rock song „Never Be Yours“, the excitement is even higher.
Soon after this perfect debut and a summer full of festival dates, My Ugly Clementine followed up with almost three minutes of musical sunshine and a clear message of feminine self-confidence: “I am the way I am – accept the good, the bad, the ugly.” Finally someone is brushing all the dust from those old rock guitars. Give me more!
