Cobra Fest day 1: Alice Null, Breathelast si Daniel Payne – 02.06.17 AB

Aseara in Fabrica s-a intamplat ceva ce nu as fi crezut ca ma va face sa traiesc una din cele mai misto seri din ultimul timp. A fost vorba mai exact prima seara din Cobra Fest, organizat de baietii de la The Guest. Partea super misto a acestui fest e ca show-urile au loc in 3 locatii diferite, scena acustica de pe terasa, scena din B52 si scena din Fabrica. Astfel, publicul se plimba dintr-o parte in alta cu lejeritate, sunt baruri peste tot, e si merch si per total aseara chiar a fost o atmosfera ca afara. Concertele au inceput, cu mici exceptii, la orele stabilite, contribuind astfel la fluiditatea atmosferei, daca pot spune asa.

Seara a inceput cu micuta trupa Alice Null pe scena acustica, concertul lor debutand la 7 jumate fix. Spun “micuta” pentru ca aceasta trupa e un duo, deci descrierea chiar merge in cazul asta. Timpul alocat lor a fost de jumatate de ora, prilej suficient pentru ei de a-si prezenta piesele atmosferice in fata unui public nou, probabil nefamiliarizat cu muzica trupei bucurestene.

Cand ai in fata o trupa de care nu stii nimic, nu prea ai idee la ce sa te astepti, asa ca reactia destul de “molcoma” de la inceput a fost pe deplin justificata.
Piese ca You, Beating sau In my Dreams au creat o atmosfera destul de “trista” si deprimanta, in deplina concordanta cu soarele care apunea peste oras. Cu un sunet excelent facut de baietii de la Green Sound Team, Alice Null au mai facut aseara un mic pas catre iesirea din anonimat, concertul lor fiind destul de reusit.

O mica obiectie am de facut la adresa unei parti a publicului, care, la fel ca si la precedentul show al trupei din Club Control, a vorbit si a ras foarte tare in timpul recitalului. Astfel de reactii mi se par complet deplasate si lipsite de bun simt, in conditiile in care trupa de pe scena (oricare ar fi ea) se chinuie sa transmita un mesaj.

Jesus Died in Bucharest – Alice Null and Spiritual Front concert review – Bucharest 20.05.17 AB

Last Saturday, Club Control in Bucharest hosted a very interesting Spiritual Front show. The Italian trio played 2 dates in this part of Europe, one on Friday in Sofia, Bulgaria and the other the next day in Bucharest. For the Romanian date, the promoter ( Final Step Productions ) selected the young band Alice Null to open the hostilities.

The concert was supposed to start at 20.00 sharp, but it was delayed a bit because of the soundcheck both bands had to perform. For Alice Null this was the most important concert so far so before the show the tension was sky high. Once on stage the Bucharest based duo immediately felt at ease and immersed themselves and the audience into an atmosphere worthy of a Twin Peaks episode.

Since the band had a limited time to play, they went through the 7 songs from the set list with very little talking, thus creating a depressive feeling. Alice Null‘s ethereal voice and the Alex Void‘s guitar parts, both enhanced by some space-like effects, filled the cozy Control hall with an impeding sense of melancholy.

Rezident Ex in concert la Bucuresti (opening act – Alice Null) – Martie 2017 AB

Aseara in Club Quantic a avut loc lansarea oficiala a noului album al trupei Rezident EX, sugestiv intitulat Audio Doping. Aflati in plin turneu national de promovare al albumului, trupa timisoreana a facut un popas si in Bucuresti, in Quantic, acolo unde circa 150 de oameni s-au adunat pentru a se bucura de muzica lor.

Trupa care a deschis concertul a fost Alice Null, un grup tanar din Bucuresti, aflat la doar al 3lea concert din scurta lor cariera. Formata din Alice Null (voce+efecte) si Alex Void (chitara+efecte), trupa bucuresteana canta un dark neo folk aflat in totala opozitie cu heavy metalul pe care il baga baietii din Rezident Ex.
Dar cum extremele se atrag, acest lucru nu a facut decat sa sporeasca ineditul serii, astfel ca prin muzica lor etherica si pe alocuri depresiva, Alice Null au reusit sa transforme sala din Quantic intr-un loc plin de intimitate si introspectie.

Reactia publicului prezent in numar destul de mic, ce-i drept (dar absolut normal daca te gandesti ca trupa e inca o mare necunoscuta publicului authoton), a fost pozitiva si incurajatoare, astfel ca dupa cele 30 de minute alocate initial, Alice Null si-au incheiat recitalul cu un bis cerut de oamenii aflati in fata scenei.

Per ansamblu, desi la prima vedere alaturarea lor cu Rezident Ex poate parea bizara, duo-ul Alice Null si-a facut foare bine treaba si au demonstrat ca de la show la show trupa creste si se incheaga din ce in ce mai bine. Cu o singura caseta demo la activ, Null and Void (aparut anul trecut la Valse Sinistre) trupa a compus si aranjat materialul ce va fi disponibil pe primul album care probabil va aparea anul acesta. Printre piesele cantate aseara au fost Reminiscence, In My Dreams, You, To Be Alive si Everything Stops.

Alice Null and Negru Latent concert review – Club Surubelnita November 2016 AB

Thursday night, on the 24th of November, two Romanian bands, one quite old and one a newcomer joined their forces and shared the stage together in Club Surubelnita.
The opening act Alice Null is a new band in the scene and for them this was the first time they played live, 2 years after starting up this project. The music they play is not commercial at all, it can be defined as a mixture of dark urban neo-folk with some eerie vocal and guitar passages and effects.
Earlier this year, in April, their first demo tape “Null and Void” was released by the Romanian label Valse Sinistre and since then the band has worked on many of the songs that will be featured on their first full length which will be released somewhere next year.
Since the band focused their whole attention on rehearsals and writing new material, the concert activities were put aside and they waited for the perfect opportunity to reveal itself.
It turned out that, just like the ouroboros is eating its own tail, Thursday night’s event was the last in this format for Negru Latent and also marked the debut for Alice Null. A chapter closes, while another one opens. Continue reading Alice Null and Negru Latent concert review – Club Surubelnita November 2016 AB

ALICE NULL – Video and Demo Tape Debut

Bucharest-based Alice Null have just released a brand new video for song Eclipse which will be featured on their demo tape Null and Void.

The demo tape will be released today, April 15th, by the small but dedicated Romanian label Valse Sinistre.

It contains five songs and it will be limited to 100 copies, which will come on a violet cassette.

The band was born 2 years ago, when Alice Null (vocals) and Alex Void (guitars) decided to join forces and create something different than the average rock/metal music you get to hear everyday.
The music the duo makes is some sort of dark, urban folk with eerie vocals and haunting guitar parts that together with the lyrics build a perfect symmetry, enveloping the listener in a strange, creepy atmosphere.
