Polish Jazz London Series: Niechęć (Dislike)
Thursday, July 4th
The band’s name translates to “dislike”, which is actually the opposite of how their music affects its listeners. Their hypnotic mixture of jazz, ambient, electronic music and alternative rock can be addictive, as well as the dark, mysterious and at moments hysteric atmosphere they create.
Some say they could be called the twisted kids of Kamasi Washington and Sigur Ros, but in fact the band manages to avoid being placed in a niche and offers a fresh and unique approach. What makes them really special is their attachment to Polish Jazz legends like Tomasz Stańko and Krzysztof Komeda, and an ability to recontextualize this deeply emotional melodic legacy into suites that balance aggression with grace.
Niechęć emerged in 2011 from a lively free-improv scene that flourished in Warsaw at the time. The musicians have released three albums so far, “Śmierć w miękkim futerku” (“Death In A Soft Fur Coat”) (2012), “Niechęć” (2016), and “Live at Jazz Club Hipnoza”(2018), all to high critical acclaim in Polish and international press and blogosphere.
Their live performances are a most vibrant experience that stays with the listeners long after the show is over. Don’t miss it, and expect the unexpected!
