"...last year's discovery of the festival, The Angelcy, which gave one of the festival's best shows and certainly the most surprising." - Uri Zer Aviv for Haaretz

"Five Cool Israeli Indie Bands"

"A very new group, or should I say ensemble on the Israeli indie map that has already managed to gather a pretty serious crowd around them. You can actually hear the variety of influences in this group's interesting music – classical, folk, rock, pop, gypsy, Arabic and what not, which create in a wonderful combination what they themselves describe as "alternative folk". With texts in vagabond English and a viola, flute, contra-bass and two drummers on the same drum set, theAngelcy actually manage to create angelic music, touching the heart and soul of the listener." - Eyal Feder for Afarkeseth (music blog)

"First indie generation makes room for next at Israel's Yaarot Menashe festival"

"the Angelcy's music was colorful and energetic, the singing was sharp and incisive and the texts revealed an interesting obsession with death, children and mainly the death of children. This band, like many of its sister bands, sings in English, but its subjects seem to be very Israeli. It will be interesting to keep track of it after this festival." - Ben Shalev for Haaretz

Bio

theAngelcy took off about a year and a half ago and within an exceptionally short time has made a name for itself as a unique phenomenon in the vibrant local music scene.

The band, not being sponsored or solicited, has quickly become a key player in popular local festivals performing for thousands, and has gathered itself a loyal and rapidly growing fan base. At the same time, theAngelcy is consistently praised by the media, including frequent plays on Israel's most listened to radio station (this without even putting out a single).

The band's concerts are characterized by a loving mesmerized audience, chanting the lyrics, entranced and paying great attention throughout the show and lingering around for a long while after it's all over, not wanting to go home.

A few of the band's songs are already receiving a lot of attention, even before the band has produced an album - "Dreamer" is a popular radio hit listed on the billboard week after week, "My Baby Boy" has made a great appearance on "Indie City" project and "Giant Heart" is the theme song for the internationally acclaimed film "Not in Tel Aviv", which has been awarded the "Silver Leopard" in Locarno film festival.

The band is keen and curious to get in touch with musical and artistic life forms outside of tiny Israel. It seems the local music scene is quite infatuated with theAngelcy.

Now, how about the world?
