The Black Room Short Info

The Black Room is a four-piece rock band formed in the summer of 2014 in Rijeka, Croatia. Their debut album „In This Town Lies a City“ was released in March 2016 and was well received by both critics and audience making them one of the prominent bands emerging on the new Rijeka rock scene.

Extensive touring soon followed leading them to clubs and festivals throughout Croatia and the whole region, with a sold out show in Rijeka's cult club „Palach“ and slots at some of the most prestigious and biggest festivals like the INmusic festival, Indirekt festival and many more.

In mid 2017. they opened for band Wovenhand in Rijeka and are currently working on a new Ep to be released in the summer of 2017. The first single from the Ep titled ‘’Ready To Go’’ was released in June. They are currently confirmed as one of the bands performing on Waves festival, one of the biggest showcase festivals in Europe.

The group consists of Jakov Katalinić (vocal, guitar), Leo Ventin (vocal, guitar), Miljen Sirotić (bass) and Ivan Ritoša (drums). The band's sound is reminiscent of and rooted in garage rock with influences from neopsychedelia and noise pop bands of late 80's and 90's. Lyrics are inspired by personal stories from the city, with its protagonists living against a backdrop of rock, poetry and nightlife. Rejecting the standard narrative values, the lyrics also deal with themes of social status, isolation, exploration and achieving personal freedom.
