헝가리 부다페스트에서 온 8인조 인디 밴드 Mary Popkids는 세련되고도 소울풀한 팝 음악을 지향한다. 그들은 헝가리 음악 씬의 주역으로 꼽히고 있을 뿐만 아니라, 러시아와 폴란드, 벨기에, 루마니아, 그리고 스웨덴 등의 페스티벌 무대에 서기도 하였다. 2020년에는 그들의 세 번째 LP가 발매될 예정이라고 한다.
Mary PopKids is an indie band based in Budapest, Hungary. The group of 8 aims to make edgy and soul-infused pop; they also cite eclectic influences ranging from Arcade Fire and Vampire Weekend to Sly Stone and Bon Iver. Recognized for their energetic, vocoder and percussion heavy live shows, they’ve become household names in Hungary’s music scene, performing regularly at the biggest festivals and premier clubs. Venturing out of the local scene the band also played shows and festivals in Russia, Poland, Belgium, Romania and Sweden in the last few years. Recent highlights include writing the anthem of Sziget Festival, headlining the Liveurope Showcase event at A38 and licensing music for ABC’s Good Trouble TV show. They are currently working on their third LP, scheduled for release in early 2020.
