Explore: Lucy Kruger & The Lost Boys (JAR/DE) + Kovošrot

Nová Cvernovka and Sharpe showcase festival present the Explore format, which regularly introduces young interesting musical groups on the European scene.



Lucy Kruger & The Lost Boys is an art pop/alternative band based in Berlin. The group, founded by South African-born artist Lucy Kruger, is known for creating music full of atmosphere and intensity. Their prolific output and memorable live shows have attracted attention from both audiences and critics alike. After the release of her debut album, ‘Summer’s Not That Simple’ (2015), the band was booked by some of the country’s most respected live music festivals, including Endless Daze, Oppikoppi, Rocking The Daisies, and Up The Creek. In April this year, the band released their latest record, ‘Heaving’ – a vivid and visceral collection of songs that saw the band boldly enter into new territory. The online music publication writes that it drifts between “intimacy and euphoria… We hear the ethereal experimental sounds of Delia Derbyshire reverberating through the captivating introduction, but the raw and visceral energy of PJ Harvey, Hole, and Garbage soon crashes the
party.” Lucy Kruger has earned a reputation as a unique and accomplished vocalist and songwriter. Earlier this year, she co-wrote and recorded a song with the well-known music group, ‘The Frank Popp Ensemble.’ She also features as a vocalist on the latest releases of ‘The Underground Youth’ as well as the highly respected alternative group ‘Swans.’




The Slovak band Kovošrot is a cluster of all sorts of subgenres of metal, combined into a compact metal musical monster. A fusion of rusty mess, dirty noise and dreamy melody. “If something like a metal renaissance is to happen in Slovakia, this band will be one of those who will lead.” Denis Bango (Fvck_Kvlt, The Wilderness)
