Being happy is the best.
Punčke are probably the best young rock band that came from Croatia in the last 10 years! Although they just reached another peak in their career supporting Queens of the Stone Age in Ljubljana and Zagreb in June 2014, Lucija (guitar and vocals), Ruby (drums) and Anja
(bass guitar) are continuing to push things forward.
Formed in Vinkovci, Croatia back in 2007 Punčke started as a multimembered high school collective but from 2011 they are a strong three piece band that still hasn't decided which genre they belong to. The audience and media usually describes Punčke as an alternative/indie or punk rock band but all kinds of music influences and their personal music favorites made every one of their songs different from the others.
You can hear that on band's debut album "Sunčano s povremenom naoblakom" that was released at the end of 2013 and immediately became praised by the audience as well as the critics. The album was included in each and every "Best Album of the Year" list in magazines and music portals in Croatia and region.
Untill now, Punčke count over 200 great live shows in Croatia, Serbia, Slovenia, Austria and more, playing festivals like InMusic and Terraneo and opening for Queens of the Stone Age as mentioned before. Their explosive, loud and emotional performance is well known to anyone who has been to their shows so check them out during their 2014 summer tour, from Exit festival in Novi Sad, Sziget Festival in Budapest to beautiful Park Orsula in Dubrovnik.
Their debut album "Sunčano s povremenom naoblakom" was released at the end of 2013. The album was well received by both critics and the audience and it soon became a part of every „Best album of the year“ list all around the Balkans.
