Line up 2022: ÄTNA
by Miriam Rossius
This duo from Dresden doesn’t need much to make a big statement: minimalistic drums, a fabulous voice, some electronic effects, a few melancholic piano runs. But what ÄTNA create with these elements is surprisingly impressive and intense, organic and futuristic at the same time. Thanks to their individual style Inéz and Demian Kappenstein -both initially coming from jazz- are now sought-after throughout Europe.
No wonder they won Reeperbahn Festival’s Anchor Award for promising newcomers. But then what is a newcomer? They released their first EP in 2016 and almost immediately the musicfans from Berlin based blog musikmussmit.de fell in love with ÄTNA. They praise their „powerful eruptions“, a „perfectionism of the sound“ and the „vibrant sound whirl“. We join in and are looking forward to the duo's second album and an exciting concert in Rudolstadt!
