Quotes

“Forget glossy production and fully fleshed-out songs: this year’s gem is a rough one. [...] Listen through to the end – and then find an excuse to go see Balans live. With an immediate emotional connection between band and audience, that’s where the fireworks really go off. ”
- Matej Holc, beehype
 
“Their sound can definitely not be described in short and to say it is unconventional is just the beginning. They combine lo-fi rock, kraut-rock, pop, psych and all sorts of bits and pieces from different genres, and their live-act is an experience to behold, the duo always prepares an interesting show, via interesting costumes and/or visuals and unique performances of their songs.”
- Dušan Bulajič, Radio Študent, international radio show RadioMuse
 
“[…] this Ljubljana based duo make experimental off-kilter pop that isn’t a million miles from Warpaint, Effi Briest or even The Slits. Playing in front of a slide-heavy backdrop pierced by strobes emitting a range of different colours colliding, they’re an audio-visual experience that leaves little to the imagination.”
- Dom Gourlay, Gigwise @ Festival MENT, 2019
