Separation, loneliness, fear, and silence. The painful relationship between a man and a woman. These are the main themes in the songs of the musical duo Kieslowski. This band, which performs so-called “urban folk,” consists of the musician known as DKP (previously of Bez Peří and Houpací Koně) and pianist Marie Kieslowski. These two exceptional musicians perform with the intimacy and rawness of acoustic guitar, piano, and the contrast between two distinctive and harmonious voices.
Kieslowski, whose delicate songs took the Czech musical scene by storm, has released several albums with Indies Scope: Mezi lopatky (2014), Na nože (2012), Tiché lásky (2011), Tanečnice (digital version, 2012), and Na lože (remix, 2013). The band’s music has been well received outside the Czech Republic as well (Waves Vienna, Austria, 2013; Urkult, Sweden, 2016; Frazy, Poland, 2016). The band’s most recent album, Mezi lopatky (produced by Jan P. Muchow) earned rave reviews and was nominated for the 2014 Apollo Award.
