Stergin Short Info

“Like most of the great modern music, Austrian Vinzenz Stergin‘s compositions defy genre brackets, combining elements of electronics, blues, classical and rock music. Think whimsical pop in the vein of Anna Meredith. Stergin’s live set included a drummer and was easily the most fun performance of MENT 2017.”
God Is In The TV

“This is a record that you just couldn’t have heard five years ago. It’s completely in the now, in the moment trying to push the boundaries of what’s possible and what can be done.“
TOM ROBINSON, BBC6 Music

"A bewildering cavalcade of noise, with cutting edge electronics sitting alongside rather more vintage fare."
CLASH

“Strikingly unique; an offbeat departure from the day that hints at all manner of things to come.”
GOLDFLAKEPAINT

“Things I love: weirdos, pop, and weirdos who make pop. Given that Stergin was kind of an easy sell. Blues, rock, Afropop—the Austrian’s tunes are the kitchen sink of cross-genre pollination. They’re also ridiculously fun.”
Under The Radar Magazine

Creating is Vinzenz Stergin’s passion. For this multi-talented musician, the act of making music is its own reward. Vinzenz and versatile drummer Adam Betts (known for his work with electronic maverick Squarepusher & Three Trapped Tigers) are Naim Records’ latest signing, Stergin – a band who combine blues, rock, electronics and modern composition in a way that defies musical boundaries and gleefully breaks rules.

Inspired by psychedelia, “’60s and ’70s weird music”, Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention, he shared a house with producer/musician John Calvert (Ghostpoet), who put him onto electronic music (as well as co-producing the EP tracks). Nowadays, a love of contemporary acts like Jon Hopkins bleeds through Stergin’s music.

“… his use of field recordings, that’s something I try to do a lot, use found sounds and then treat them,” Vinzenz says. On YouTube, Stergin’s solo Monday Evening Bathroom Sessions are films of him performing in his bathroom, making up fun, inventive songs based on newspaper articles that have appeared the same day.

“I’m a work in progress and I love it,” says Vinzenz.
