Still working on that hot first release.



Repetitor, a garage rock/post-punk trio from Belgrade, Serbia, are undoubtedly one of the most prominent young bands from the Balkans. With their two albums Sve to vidim je prvi put (Odlian Hrak, 2008) and Dobrodoli na okean (Moonlee Records, 2012) Repetitor simply topped the charts, got nothing but rave reviews and with their highly-energetic live shows, quickly broadened their fan base. Repetitor played numerous shows all over the Balkans, in Holland and Italy, as well as at the most important festivals in the region (Sziget, Exit, Terraneo, Taksirat, etc). 

Repetitor faithfully carved their signature sound, a blend of heavy rock'n'roll, post-punk and everything in between. They deliver songs of cross-genre ecstasy, packed in a powerful, rocking-your-guts-out interplay of instruments, vocals and the distinctive wall of sound they create together. Attempts to find a direct musical influence may prove to be a difficult task, but an attentive listener will recognise similarities with variety of bands, from early Mudhoney, arlo Akrobata, Fugazi, Sonic Youth, Pixies and early Nirvana all the way to Black Sabbath or even Suicide. That may sound irreconcilable at first, but Repetitor do it with ease and bring a sonic experience that could hardly be more enjoyable. 

Repetitor definitely represent the best of Belgrades alternative garage rock scene. Perhaps its a bit too early, but not at all exaggerated, to say that they are steadily becoming a part of some yet unwritten chapter on rock history and culture from the region. Given the recognition and the influence they already have, we can expect the chapter to be written, sooner than later.
