Danceble post-punk activists Bernays Propaganda are one of the region's currently most successful and internationally recognized music acts from Macedonia. They released 4 full-lengths on Moonlee Records (Happiness Machines, 2009; My Personal Holiday, 2010; Zabraneta Planeta, 2013; Politika, 2016), toured Europe many times (more then 100 concerts all over Europe in 2013 alone) and even toured US for six weeks in spring 2014.

2015 opened new chapter in band’s history: after line-up changes Bernays Propaganda is reincarnating with new sound, new challenges and new vision. The result is their new album »Politika« (released March 2016) which flirts with electronic new-wave, taking away some of the guitars’ sharp edges, while the pace is dictated by a drum machine. The new material recalls the sound of New Order and other new-wave artists from the early 80s, as well as the sounds of German indietronic in the vein of The Notwist, a band that underwent a similar sound transformation with their album “Neon Golden”.

Dance, clap, sing and celebrate civil disobedience, human rights and freedom! Bernays Propaganda are inviting us to a politically engaged dance!
