BIOGRAPHY

Celebrated by fans and critics across the German speaking realm, Wanda are the shooting stars of the local music scene and “maybe the last important rock’n’roll band of our generation” (Musikexpress). Shortly after signing with the Austrian record label Problembär Records, they released their debut album „Amore“ in October 2014 and have ever since been ranking on the top of German charts. Two more albums – Bussi (2015) and Niente (2017), now on Vertigo Records (Universal) – as well as numerous gold record certification and awards followed.
The charismatic lead singer Marco Michael Wanda sings in his native lingo – Viennese. Lyrically, the songs are an ode to love, life and Vienna. The tracks deliver catchy and memorable phrases, oozing with sarcasm and good old Viennese charm, which is known to be rough at times, but therefore all the more endearing. It is said that Wanda could be reforming Austrian pop music and are reminiscent of acclaimed predecessors such as Falco. However, those who think this formation is only a remake of past styles, bands and icons, should think again. The authenticity manifests itself in every line and verse. Wanda just proves once again how many brilliant ideas by Austrian musicians are emerging these days. It seems as if Wanda have created the right music at the right time.
