Mulholand Blue (CZ)

When a band has such an exceptional singer with such a charismatic expression as Bára Novotná, it has already half won. The emotional trio from Prague, however, in addition to her haunting vocals offers blues pensiveness, garage rawness and a dark atmosphere of night clubs. Last year, the original duo (which used to compared to The Kills or the Czech Kalle) expanded by a drummer and this year, they released their first EP containing melancholic mood and sensitive rock songwriting. It was played on the Slovak radio FM, and they held in the chart Velká sedma of Radio 1 for seven full weeks.
