Hometown: Gdańsk, Poland

Genre: Psychedelic Rock

Why We're Excited: Trupa Trupa frontman Grzegorz Kwiatkowski is a published poet, but in "To Me," he limits his lyrical output to precisely three words: "Away / To me." That leaves Trupa Trupa to pound out a hefty blast of warped and churning psych-rock thunder that culminates in a full-band freakout of hair-raising proportions.
