Passion and flavor of East Europe dressed up in freak alike big city rebels.
Klotljudi are placing poetry and philosophy with the political and social in their anti-rock. A psychotic and chaotic turn from the Serbian underground. They are nodding to Belgrade’s prominent new wave 80’s artists combined with the style and admiration towards the newer London scene from the past decade. Or better yet, think of The Fall and Fat white family simultaneously while you think of the pagan Slavic perceptions of love and tragedy.
Formed in 2014 in Belgrade, the band made more of a statement than anything other, self-releasing their debut Svi oće voće (Everybody wants fruit) in 2016. Subtitled ABOUT TRANSITION AND RELIGION the songs featured an image of a transitional state, thematically bound with topics such as church, poverty, alcoholism, love and friendship. The group shortly made a name for themselves with wild live performances in just about every venue playable in Belgrade. This was followed by the change in line-up with two of the three original members moving to Asia.
Lots of people came through the band in the next period, making a mark in the transition from a punkish Belgrade trio to a big rock and roll band. The group now counts 6 people. With the change of line-up came change in maturity in sound, adding samples and drum machines combined with their well-known live performances .
Currently promoting their second album Fascism of love, published Belgrade label Krava 22 in November 2021.
