Thu 12 Jan Eurosonic Air 22:15 - 23:00
Throes + The Shine embody both adventure and vitality. They are in fact two bands that started out by mixing rock 'n roll (Throes from Porto) with Kuduro (The Shine from Luanda, Angola) and their fusion now spans genres and influences that are spread out through a multitude of cultures. The band use every ounce of their creativity to build an infectious steaming live show that combines the energy of Buraka Som Sistema and Skip & Die with the rhythmic madness of Meridian Brothers. It comes with a party guarantee.

Trupa Trupa are Grzegorz Kwiatkowski, Tomek Pawluczuk, Wojtek Juchniewicz and Rafał Wojczal from Gdansk, Poland. In 2015 the experimental and extremely versatile band was signed by Blue Tapes and X-Ray Records. That resulted in the critically acclaimed Headache album. The Quietus described it as 'always clever, often beautiful, and at times very angry guitar music, song driven, razor-edged no wave rumblings, anguished Bad Seed shanties, sopping wet blue-eyed soul ballads'. They also compared it to Grizzly Bear's masterpiece Yellow House.
