We are ÄTNA.
Among Germany’s most exciting newcomers, ÄTNA have already played high profile festivals at home and abroad, and have toured Russia, the Czech Republic, Slovenia and Estonia. In addition, they’ve performed in cities as diverse as Istanbul and London, and that’s not to mention their slot at the Montreux Jazz Festival this year. For a German band, this is quite something.
Like Fever Ray meeting Grimes in London's grandiose Royal Opera House, ÄTNA focus their shows around piano, with analogue effects mixed in directly, loops, effects and delays played live, and nothing automated at all. Moreover, rather than using Autotune to straighten out singer Inéz’ pitch, any vocal treatments only add depth to her striking voice.
Employing elements of dramatically different movements and genres, Inéz and Demian - a creative partnership of equals – create an avant-garde ‘work of art’ in the very best sense of the phrase. With fashion and design integrated into their music, ÄTNA wear monochrome stage costumes and deliver stunning videos, something they succinctly refer to as "making their own world". Montreux Jazz Festival or Coachella? ÄTNA’s minds are made up: both. And they’ve already played Montreux.
