BOKKA is one of the most amazing phenomena on the Polish scene, not only because... nobody knows who they are. Masked faces are just an introduction to the extraordinary story about BOKKA - a story about a band that did not need names and surnames to create - unique not only on the scale of the domestic market - identity.
They appeared almost out of nowhere due to the premiere single Town Of Strangers presented in 2013, which then became part of their debut debut album, and made some noise among domestic and foreign journalists. BOKKA became a bright spot on the map of rising Polish bands. The first album of the masked formation was well-received at home and abroad - just mention a flattering review from Pitchfork, one of the most important opinion-making music portals in the world. An original approach to both their own image and to the creation of music, which is best evidenced by the use of extraordinary, often random instruments, quickly became the hallmark of BOKKA, a group whose potential was immediately noticed beyond the borders of the homeland. After the sold-out concert tour and gigs at the biggest Polish festivals, the band performed on the stages of the most important events in Europe, including The Great Escape, Colors of Ostrava, Reeperbahn or Eurosonic, and then in clubs in Brussels, Prague or Budapest.
In 2015, BOKKA presented its second album. The album Don’t Kiss And Tell repeated the success of its predecessor - the album received a nomination in the category “Album of the Year electronics and an alternative” in the Fryderyki competition, one of the most important awards of the Polish music industry. The band played concerts with new material both in Poland and abroad. Consistently sticking to an anonymous, mysterious image, BOKKA has become one of the most popular bands of the Polish alternative scene.
Life On Planet B, the third album in the band's collection, was released on April 20th, 2018 via [PIAS] Recordings Poland and Eastern Europe.
