“German Turbopolka” is how this spectacular, Austrian septet describes themselves and after giving them a listen, we’re not sure there’s a better label for their unique sound. The music is fast and catchy and could be considered, ska, punk or anything in between. You see, turbopolka doesn’t fit into just one category, it’s open-minded passion is mingled with various musical styles from all around the globe, defying all traditional classifiers. This multi-national spirit is brilliantly showcased on their third full length, Kosmopoliturbo which was just released on August 8th via Napalm Records, with the band introducing the LP with the following quote: “In a world where globalism wipes away any and all boundaries, RUSSKAJA supplies a suitable soundtrack. Upbeat powerful songs swing between countries, languages and cultures.” Today we’re proud to premiere the debut music video for “Alive” from their brand new album. Give it a view or two below!
