Five years ago, a brand new band with a provocative name of Bernays Propaganda appeared in Skopje, Macedonia. Five years later, Bernays Propaganda have released two great full-length records, Happiness Machines (2009) and My Personal Holiday (2010), did a bunch of European tours and hundreds of shows all over Europe, and consequently gained good recognition and reputation on the European independent music scene. Bernays Propaganda grew in people's hearts with danceable high-energy post-punk, clear socio-political ideas, honest and uncompromising attitude towards music and especially restless touring.
For their fifth anniversary, Bernays Propaganda (in collaboration with Napravi Zaedno and Moonlee Records) have prepared a pleasant surprise and nice gift for all their present and future fans. The Igraj Slobodno! EP is a collection of Bernays Propaganda song remixes and covers, done by the likes of Mark Heaney (Gang of Four), Zea (the singer of The EX), Bei the Fish ft. Ida Lollobrigida, Sethstat, Anomalia Nativa, Fresh (ex-Suns, Bernays Propaganda), Duke B. and Mindless Violence. Igraj Slobodno! EP is a genre-wise pretty diverse compilation, which shows Bernays Propaganda's work in a totally new perspective. Seems that their music can easily transform and convey the message of these Macedonian activists to different audiences, which opens a bunch of new possibilities in the future. Igraj Slobodno! EP is exactly what the name says (Play Freely!) - a manifesto of openness and freedom in music. Igraj Slobodno! EP is destroying the stereotypes regarding rebellious music and proves that important ideas and messages can be effectively conveyed through music regardless of genre. Igraj Slobodno! EP is a download-only release and download is free of charge. Download and play – freely!
