Join two of Austria's most interesting up-and-coming music acts FARCE and Good Wilson for a London show this May, presented by Austrian Heart Beats.
Veronika J. König (*1997 in the Black Forest), studied in Vienna, swapped black metal and punk for the computer while still in her teens – FARCE was born.
First EP and concerts in Vienna’s underground, discovered by journalist Katharina Seidler, nationwide airplay on FM4. In 2018, the Austrian festival hat trick of Popfest, Donaufestival and Hyperreality, with the album Heavy Listening attracting Europe-wide attention.
Farce remains experimental, but becomes more refined, more accessible. 2020 brings the next release, Trauma Bounce, which makes it into the FM4 charts and worldwide radio, as does the single Déjà Vu with Aether Kombo, which becomes a No. 1. Collaborations with Fauna, Clara Luzia, Aether Kombo, Soap & Skin. Farce is (co-)producer of acts like Anthea, Sakura and Juno Lee.
At home in the feminist underground as well as the international avant-garde, König is passionate about promoting young talent in the queer music scene. In May 2022, the new album Not To Regress will see the light of day, eliciting a tear of emotion even from the stone cold walls of St. Stephen’s Cathedral.
Good Wilson are known for their laid-back feel-good vibes, catchy indie pop melodies and deep lyrics with twists and turns – so hop on Good Wilson’s guitar-shaped cab and get ready for a smooth ride along a sunny shore. Your dreamy chauffeur will deviate a bit from reality and lovingly run over all your worries.
Since the release of their self-titled debut album ‘Good Wilson’ in March 2020, the band, consisting of Günther Paulitsch, Julian Pieber, Mario Fartacek and Alex Connaughton, has become an integral part of the Austrian music landscape.
