Farewell gig by a great band dedicated to the mysterious worlds of Kim Ki Duk in this line up, featuring the unique personality of the famous jazz diva Veronika Harcsa.
Veronika Harcsa, a singer with a unique voice, and her talented bandmates, Andrew J and Balint Gyemant, formed the Bin-Jip band, which has published it’s new album, called Heavy after four years.
The new songs were continuously honed while being played to various audiences and the CD was an outcome of a three-year-long experimental period. “With the first CD’s songs we wanted to have concerts only when the material was ready. During the production of this second CD we played permanently. That is why we had lots of feedback regarding their functionality” – said Veronika Harcsa about the new CD. Andrew - the producer of the band and the new album as well – had been working on the album sound for 18 months, mixing it together with David Schram.
The band has opened up towards electronic and more experimental sounds. “In the past few years I have spent a lot of time experimenting with my voice and working on ever diferent and bountiful effects and sounds I could produce” – said the singer, while her bandmates experimented with their instruments as well. “Andrew J has been working hard on discovering how the material sounds the best, taking care of how each song can be special while the CD still shows it’s harmonious face” – said the guitarist, Balint Gyemant adding that they constantly look for opportunities to be able to create more varied guitar sounds on the CD or even on stage.
Bin-Jip, which plays – as the fans say - "intelligent-electro-alternative" music, has started a winter-spring gig tour and next time they will be heard in Budapest on the A38 on 20th of February. In the meantime here is Heavy, the CD’s title track:
