Downers & Milk (A)
Das Duo Michael Varga und Maxím Eczyk steht für ausdrucksstarke Texte, getragen von dunklem Bariton mit Einblicken auf die menschlichen Untiefen und gewürzt mit dunkelgrauer musikalischer Melancholie abseits von Mainstream-Feel-Good-Pop. Mittlerweile ist das Duo auf ein bis zu 7-köpfiges Kollektiv gewachsen.
