"A group of foreign tastemakers, taking a primal sonic journey through what the masses will only understand as a supernova-like experience or happening", that's how Elliot Hammond (Wolfmother/The Delta Riggs) describes the young Swiss Rockband "WHO'S PANDA". Four guys kicking asses for the masses. If Led Zeppelin had kids which have been raised in the 70's, skipped the 80's, took a short breath in the 90's and swimming right over to the 00's and been growing up with these decade's stars like Arctic Monkeys or Kings Of Leon, about then you can describe the sound of one of the wildest swiss bands around. With an extra portion authenticity by being not only stylish but also wild and alive on any stage, it's a complete Rock'n'Roll experience-package you'll get for sure.
"We Are The Lovers" is the mystical debut album, recorded back in 2011/12 in Freiburg, Germany. It was a delightful start with several concerts and a tour sharing the stages already with big names like The Blue Van, French Films, Kissogram or Palma Violets whose guys ultimately wished Who's Panda to go on tour with them. What didn't happened so far. So what no swiss band ever did is what Who's Panda is aiming for: Making music for the masses. Therefore it's not a wrong step to take another chance on their upcoming, second album.
Back in January '13 Who's Panda started writing again. Started recording songs in August in their own studios in the middle of the swiss nowhere to take their time, creativity and lots and lots of love for their art. Album is coming '14. The band also got invited to play in Copenhagen and also visited the legendary Molotow club in Hamburg on their little first ever europe-tour on where they left their R'n'R Sweat. All that without any label or management behind their backs, there is a delightful future predicted to them...

Tyred Eyes mixes melancholic pop with garage rock and noisy guitars, and everything is executed with a great pile of punk attitude. The guitars are loud, the bass lines melodic and the vocals are shared between the two singers Johanna and Martin.
Although brothers Martin and Erik Toresson grew up with fairly different tastes in music, they soon found common musical ground in a group from Manchester, also fronted by two brothers. Meanwhile, on the other side of Sweden Johanna Hellqvist started playing punk, unbeknownst to her that she ten years later would play in a band with the two brit pop brothers. When Erik and Martin left their native town of Falun in northern Sweden to move to Gothenburg on the west coast, they decided to start a band. They started writing songs and rehearsing and soon got to know Per Stålberg of the band Division of Laura Lee, who helped the band record their first demo. Two years later, after a whole bunch of gigs in Sweden, Tyred Eyes felt the need to develop their sound and asked their friend Johanna to join the band. They recorded the debut album The Piercing Stare, The Thousand Lies which was released 2012 by Alleycat Records. The album was followed up by a European tour and shows in Sweden.
When Joel Bjurbo joined the band in 2012 as the new drummer, Tyred Eyes’ sound was complete, and can be heard on the latest record GHOST EP. The record is released March 6th by Gaphals in Sweden, and by Alien Snatch! Records in Europe. A video for one of the songs has been recorded, and in March Tyred Eyes will embark on a three week European tour.

The Bells, are a Middle Eastern, post grunge, psychadelic rock band, based in Tel Aviv. Their influences range from Jimi Hendrix, Pixies, Cream, Nirvana, Queens Of The Stone Age and Led Zeppelin, to 60s, 70s and 90s Israeli rock and folk groups.
Barak Grossberg-guitars, Ron Ephrati-Bass, Itai Rapaport-Drums and Omri Vitis-vocals and guitars, met in a music shop on Alenby Street in Tel Aviv in 2013. It didn't take long before they formed a solid unit, based on natural chemistry between the four of them.
Vitis who is a British/Israeli singer and songwriter, has recently returned to Tel Aviv after having spent over 15 years in London. In London he wrote, performed and recorded as a solo artist and with local bands. He released several albums and was signed to Fire Records (Pulp, Teenage Fanclub, Built To Spill) and later on to Organic Records. Since his return, Vitis has collaborated with some of Israel's leading Musicians including Israeli folk legend-Ehud Banai.
Vitis brings his experience and powerful tunes to a young and energetic group of musicians. Regardless of their age though, Grossberg, Rapaport and Ephrati, are in fact very much inspired by the earlier days of 60s and 70s rockn'roll, and that can be easily traced through their mature and skilful style of playing. In their playing, they create a thick groovy sound, which complements Vitis' melodies with a deep and driving force. The result is an up to date, raw and powerful psychadelic rock sound, with a touch of fresh middle eastern scents and spices.
In the spring of 2014, The Bells launched their first two singles Home Tonight and Where Do I Go from their forth coming debut album. The guest performer at the launch gig, was the Israeli indie rock legend, Hemi Rudner. Since the release, Home Tonight and Where Do I Go have been played on some of Israel's leading radio stations including Galatz and 88FM. The two songs were recently added to the playlist of several radio stations in The U.S. and are currently on rotation at those stations.

After releasing two singles the band released their self titled debut album in 2010 on the north swedish label A WEST SIDE FABRICATION that previously have launched carrers for bands as Sahara Hotnights and Wannadies. The album holds ten playful tracks with strong melodies and hooks. Nine of the tracks were in English but the track Glockenspiel was inspired by Frankfurt born frontwoman Frida Herchenröters roots and sunged in german. Following the album release the band toured in Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Germany and Sweden and made appearances on Swedish festivals as Peace and love, Hultsfred, Arvika, Emmaboda and Trästock as well as the Ukrainian festival Gogol-fest.
During 2013 Tikkle Me signed with GAPHALS and since the band has grown to included more musicians and having a larger focus on co-operations with producers, dancers, singers and visual artists. The band started to take influences from a larger number of artforms and expressions. In august 2013 the band gained a lot of new fans all over the world as they released their video Niagara. The video premieried on the Pirate Bay and the song got over 100.000 views from all over the world in just three days. The song was the first on from the album What is Real that was released in Sweden, april 2014. The new album hold it´s ground just as the debut in playful melodis and immediate hooks. The recording of What Is Real were made together with producer Niels Nielsen (Ghost B.C, Dead Soul) and the work was to focused on adding rhythms and making the melodies to stand out even more. In the end the album hold a darker and more earnest sound then then on previous releases.
Following the album release the band have released a string of remixes on their singles made by F.O.O.L, Systraskap and Johen Rafael Tilli to name a few. The band have made appearances on the feministic festivals Nordiskt forum and Feministiskt forum in Sweden and have toured Georgia twice and played on national Georgic TV. In April 2015 the album What Is Real will be released world wide at the same time as production of new songs starts.
Formed in 2004, as an art project designed to put music on the emotions derived from paintings, LISERSTILLE has always been on a quest to redefine the way we perceive music and question the traditions of modern rock. In 2006 the band recorded their first demo to present to the business. This however became their debut album when Target Records (DK) decided to release the 4 track – 43 minute recording. Following the tremendous success of The Construction of the AmpTrain LISERSTILLE opened SPOT festival, played Roskilde Festival and had showcases atPopKomm. Legendary music journalist, David Fricke also mentioned LISERSTILLE in the American issue of RollingStone Magazine and compared the band with Sigur Ros and the early days of Pink Floyd.
Exactly one year from the release of TCOFAT came the 2nd album Apathobvious, which both started the close cooperation with producer Anders Ruby and also put LISERSTILLEs music into a new and more professional approach to the recording process. One which lives today stronger than ever and contributes to the many dimensions and layers in the songs - even after a countless number of plays. Apathobvious was followed up by massive touring in Denmark and Scandinavia.
Three years of intense composing later, the bombastic and truly epic album The Collibro was finally ready for release in the spring of 2010. After being recorded in complete solitude in a lodge by the band itself, the tracks were brought to the north where Magnus Lindberg, drummer and producer of Swedish prog metal band Cult Of Luna, did a deep and warm analog mix and master, which completed the complex album. The Collibro was released in Europe by VME and gained massive attention from music media all over the world. Especially the German magazines agreed on the groundbreaking quality of the album and Germany's biggest prog rock magazine, Eclipsed, awarded it 'Album of the month'. The release was followed up by several full European tours, which among others took the band to the famous Belgian festival for progressive music,Dunk!Festival.
In spring 2012 the fourth full-length album NOUS was released once again on VME. The album was the first to be recorded in LISERSTILLE's own studio The Cube of Eternal Doom on an old farm in the outskirts of Aarhus. Once again mixed and mastered in the darkness of NIM by Anders Ruby, and once again critically high acclaimed all over Europe with even more countries on the list. NOUS is modern epic in high definition!
The mini-album Flight of Belljár was released on the 16th of September 2013 containing three steps, three stories, circulating around the ultimate destruction of planet Earth – nothing less! Instruments are exchanged, and the result shows that the huge tension and release, always stated as the bands greatest strengths, is furthermore emphasized though a natural insecurity walking unknown territory. Then, when the musicians finally intake their signature positions, the release is enhanced far more than ever before!
LISERSTILLE returned to the spotlight of the international music business once again in 2014, with showcases at both SPOT Festival in Aarhus, and the first travel overseas to the huge music business festival Canadian Music Week in Toronto, ON.
April 24th 2015 progressive rock band LISERSTILLE releases a new full length, wide format album. ‘Empirical Ghost’ is mixed in Seattle by producer Randall Dunn (Sunn O))), Earth, Steve Von Till) and is released digitally and as luxurious double white vinyl by German G-Records/Rough Trade. The four gents’ desires for modern epic are intact, but the album presents a structurally and sonically new world. Mr. Dunn’s unmerciful priorities create a sparkling red thread that underlines why LISERSTILLE is Denmark's most incomparable rock band.

LFNT (Also - Elephant) is an Indie Rock band formed & lead by Musician & Producer Ran Nir and it is also an advice hidden in an acronym;
Live Free Not Troubled.
Born in Jerusalem, Ran Nir, is a singer, composer, multi-instrumentalist & producer. Before starting LFNT, Ran was a founding member & the bass player for Asaf Avidan & The Mojos. After more than five years of tremendous success, with hundreds of performances on big stages around the world, three best-selling albums (In Europe & Israel) & a #1hit in 12 countries (“Reckoning Song” \ “One-Day” Remix by Wankelmut) the Mojos decided to stop its activities and Ran went on his independent way.
In 2012 Ran formed LFNT with an ensemble of musicians he gathered along the way and released the band first album “Tales Of a Drunken Man”. The album got many good reviews in Israel and was considered one of the best rock albums to be released in Israel that year (“'Tales of a drunken man' is one of the best Rock&Roll albums to have come out in Israel in the last years” - 'Gallery, Maariv').
Ran Nir moved to Berlin, Germany in 2014 and recorded the band's 2nd album 'Time To Bleed', the album was released by 'Cargo Records' and the single 'Stories' and other tracks were played frequently on many radio stations, playlists and shows around Germany and other countries.
The LFNT sound is a mixture of Rock&Roll History. One can hear Rock&Roll move through the years in every song, from 30s blues to 70s groove , 90s grunge and modern day sound. While LFNT's music is Influenced by a verity of artists, Ran's Lyrics are Influenced by artist such as Bob Dylan, John Lennon & Beck describing Struggles of Love & Life.

LFNT's Live set is a truly great live performance, with edgy guitars and Keyboard sound, pumping bass & drums and melodic & versatile vocals by Ran & the band members.
(“We found ourselves up close and personal to the Israeli band LFNT, as they took over the postage stamp sized stage, less than an arm’s stretch away. Relishing the attention from the sardine packed crowd, they ripped into their short and definitely not sweet set from their debut album “Tales of a Drunken Man”. Packing out the spit and sawdust bar to the gills, lead singer Ran Nir urged one and all to step right up and stamp the floor in unison. As he sweated rakish charisma across us, the keyboard player cut loose and played for all he was worth. As they finished up and caroused into the night, we were left in no doubt that great things are destined for them in the rock and roll hall of fame.” - The Fabulous Times')
The band finished working on their 2nd album “Time To Bleed”:
recorded in Israel & Germany by Ran Nir & Fabien Leseure (Sound engineer of “The Brian Johnstown Massacre”) mixed by Johannes Saal at Funkhaus Berlin & Mastered by Brian Lucey (Black Keys, Arctic Monkeys, Beck and more...)
The album was released in Israel on May 2015 and will be released later in Europe.

Arie also has a Bachelor degree in Multi-Disciplinal Music, majoring in Vocals, from the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance.
