Media Stres – Pi – Audio

It was back at the tail end of 2015 that the Croatian rock band Media Stres last featured.

Having spent time developing their live presence it is good to discover Media Stres have found time to record new material.

Previously a trio now a quartet with the addition of Arian Peharda adding a second guitar, Media Stres have been able to create a richer sound as is evidenced in their most recent track, Pi, which was released on the 14th.

From the five track release Right Or Wrong, the second, is a number tht features rumbling instrumentation and reflective vocal as Media Stres follow up on the EP – E.V.I.L. (e-Virus influenced love) Part 1. released just over a year ago.

Right Or Wrong has the air of a space-rock number, which they have compressed into a pressurised airlock as Media Stres  draw on closely marked chords and a pulsing percussion / bass combination to which the vocal adds the airy spaces.

E.V.I.L. (Part 2) is available on bandcamp.

There is a delightful swagger and bounce to the music that struts into the room with the arrival of Media Stres. A rock solid percussion forms the steel for the trio, to which the bass adds a hum of discontent, surrounded by a guitar that shifts between lead and rhythm giving the trio a wider spectrum in which to explore. The vocal which emerges from Californian indie, whilst initially sounding discordant, quickly settles in the ears and the out-put has a coherent story to tell.


The highlight of the sounds, for me, are the powerful drums that rhythmically pulse around the room capturing attention and gathering the body up to sway in time.

Somewhat appositely I was sent the most recent Media Stres release E.V.I.L. (e-Virus influenced love) Part 1. (which is available on bandcamp) as an introduction to the band and on ‘liking’ their Facebook Page found they now have 666 likes.

A couple of years into their journey Media Stres are balancing releases with live performances and it will be interesting to hear how things develop for them this year. Already Part 2 is scheduled for release in the Spring.
