Ioana Iorgu is a poetic post-punk duo from Groningen, Netherlands.

Just to make sure you’re okay.
Melding the agression of punk with the technical intricacies of jazz, OATS are making their mark with an emotional and hard-hitting live act. Luscious chords and theatrical vocals go alongside earth-shaking bass and blistering drums. Their refreshing blend of emo, math rock and experimental hip-hop ensures a passionate performance not to be missed.
The singer/producer duo Never Been To Berlin makes compelling English-language dance music and draws inspiration from a variety of genres from psytrance to hip-hop.
