Kieslowski are a duo made up of pianist and singer, Marie Kieslowski, and DKP who plays guitar and sings as well as contributing ‘other noises’. Together they create a melodic brand of indie folk.
My attention was caught in particular by a track called Špinavý dny (literally ‘Unclean days’). Based around a simple and yet melancholic guitar melody, DKP’s delicate vocals compliment the mood perfectly and I love the part that sounds as though it is played on some kind of melodic percussion instrument (as a former drummer, I should really know what it is!).
They will be appearing at festivals around the Czech Republic over the summer, most notably joining what looks set to be a fantastic line up at Colours of Ostrava. I will certainly be trying to catch one of their shows.
