Anton Vezuv Short Info

"Anton Vezuv is an alternative rock band from Budapest, Hungary founded in 2010. The last 5 years have been spent honing their custom ‘power melancolia’ as a full band. Originally written on guitar and piano, alone in a sequestered cellar by the lead singer Istvan Gyulai, it was a blissful occasion to meet the other members and form a full size group to build the power on – the melancholy came naturally. Anton Vezuv, cohesive unit, kept the intimate sensation of the acoustic pieces as they gently and astutely placed them among the amplifiers.

After numerous club gigs, compilation, and radio appearances, Anton Vezuv’s first LP Into The Sea came out in 2014. The band has stayed active and is working with music producer Peter Jakab on a new EP slated for a Spring 2016 release. Keeping in step with the intrinsic sadness of Into The Sea, the as of now untitled offering finds the band tighter than ever musically, even adding some horns to the mix. Istvan, fueled on Mark Kozelek, Justin Vernon (Bon Iver), and Hungarian wine, is clearly maturing as a songwriter and has a seemingly clear vision of where the band and the music is heading." - Scott Zuppardo (Sad Songs Keep The Devil Away, US)

"Into the Sea is not a fluffy album full of inconsequential songs but more one where emotional considerations and song construction are given equal weight and that is enough to bring forth comparisons with the renowned skills of la Morrissey in that arena." - BluesBunny Reviews (UK)

"Leader Istvan Gyulai sings in English, and is pointedly credited for the band’s “sad songs.” I’d suggest the words wistful and melancholy instead: wonderfully textured songs in classic tradition with a rainy-day vibe." - Bill Kopp, Musoscribe (US)
