Stray Night #2 : Orkid / Second Wave
‘Stray Nights’ are a series of concerts organized by the Stray Lights, a Romanian indie music community established by Orkid, Zammorian, Second Wave, DayDay, Greetings Sugar & Dor Mărunt. We believe that only with a common effort of our local bands, audience, clubs, promoters, festivals & music critics the Romanian music scene will evolve. We aim to discover & support new bands & new acts & also help the local scene in anyway we can.
Second Wave is an alternative rock duo from Bucharest, Romania and it consists of Daniel Antohi on vocals & guitar and Radu Dorobantu on the drums.
They made their debut in late 2016, since then releasing 3 singles that were played on local alternative radio stations.
With dreamy textures, straight-forward drumbeats and a heavy use of modulation effects, they manage to fill the stage with their sound, although being just a two-piece band >

Divine Astronaut are an electronic group featuring singer Livvy Holland and Producer/multi instrumentalist Moonhead. As the pair constantly travel, it was above 35,000 feet somewhere over Europe in August 2019 that the band came to fruition, Moonhead lamenting the absence of electronic acts from the 90’s in the current musical soundscape. With Holland in agreement, the duo vowed to start an electronic act and upon landing in Eastern Europe started work on their debut album.
They are currently working on their debut album which is due for release in 2020. Their first single ‘Undone’ will be released October 2019.
An indie folk one man band based in Bucharest that is soon to become a full band project.
