ParisTetris is a Warsaw based band playing together since late 2008. They are one of the most exciting live band coming from Poland. Their music is not easily categorized into a genre, but has certain affinities with The Pixies, The Ex, Tom Waits, Klaus Nomi, Micachu and the Shapes, Deerhoof and some reminiscences of Angelo Badalamenti's collaboration with David Lynch...Read More...
The band are 5 people: Candelaria Saenz Valiente, Macio Moretti, Marcin Masecki, Bartek Tyciński, Robert Bęza.
They were picked up early by one of the most recognizable Polish independent labels: Lado ABC based in Warsaw. Through Lado ABC, ParisTetris released their first full-length CD in 2009, titled simply PARISTETRIS. The album shook the grounds of alternative scene in Warsaw and gained the music press attention right away. Dozens of their crazy live shows around Poland helped ParisTetris to become known for their fresh and unique style.
One year later the band hit the studio again, recording their second album in Buenos Aires. HONEY DARLIN' (released through Lado ABC in late 2010), was mixed and co-produced by Eddie Stevens, former keyboardist of Moloko and Roisyn Murphy. New LP received enthusiastic reviews, and the band won various awards and best artist nominations. One of the most important is Passports Awards of the Polityka weekly, received by Macio Moretti for being a "human orchestra with his own ensemble in his mind and onstage".
