Rycerzyki is a sophisti-pop band formed in 2013 in Kraków, Poland. Rycerzyki’s first two albums: the frivolous, carefree flowing debut Rycerzyki which is a collection of unpretentious, teenage and slightly crazy in spirit pop gems, and Kalarnali, turning into more psychedelic, dreamy, prog-pop realms – stories from a desolate winter land, were received with enthusiasm by fans and critics alike. Melodious, rich in sound and literary, intricately arranged songs, freely combining the atmosphere of the Polish 80s with avant and sophisti, progrock with Stereolab departure, disco or Krautrock, emerge a specific and unique character of the music of Rycerzyki, which does not try to fit into any particular trend by force. The band has performed at festivals such as OFF Festival in Katowice, Monkey Week in Seville, Spain, Spring Break in Poznań, among others. In 2019, the Krakow-based lineup was selected by the European showcase network INES as one of the 100 interesting young bands from Europe (INES Talent 2019). The Knights have played club concerts in Berlin and Prague, among others. They have performed as support alongside Canadian band TOPS, Gaba Kulka, Pustki or Mikromusic. Rycerzyki’s third album titled. Zniknij na zawsze was released on August 27, 2021 by Thin Man Records. The new release is a result of playing with retro electronic sounds, touching upon both the analogue classics of the genre and the charming plastic-tank aesthetics of Windows 95 and the first experiments with midi and Casio instruments. Complex, multi-layered and varied compositions have a common denominator in the form of distinctive vocal lines brought definitely to the fore.
