Wckd Nation (Slovenia)
“A very welcome breath of fresh air on the domestic scene.”
Jernej Sobočan, VAL202
Wckd Nation is a community of musicians from Ljubljana, founded by multi-instrumentalists, composers, producers and brothers Peter and Žiga Smrdel. The core group consists of eight members, while at MENT you can expect a spectacle with more than ten people on the stage. This neo-soul band released its debut single at the end of 2018. Their smooth vocals are inspired by new-age R&B, while the instrumentals are fuelled by the spirit of future jazz, a nod to the contemporary British jazz scene. 2019 saw them head on their first international tour, including an appearance at Tallinn Music Week. Their latest single ‘The Swan King’, was released in November, but we are now stoked about the contagious upcoming single ‘Airplane Blonde,’ a MENT-office favourite, that sees Wckd Nation explore hip-hop in an exciting new way.
