Képzelt Város

Képzelt Város is a Post Rock band from Budapest; Hungary.

Barta Gyöngyi: cello
Oláh Gergely: vocals, keyboard
Győrffy Máté: guitar
Miskolczi Márton: guitar
Kocsis Szilveszter: bass
Gál Dániel: drums

The band was formed by four architect students in 2005.
There were several changes in the lineup such as an expansion to six members. Their music differs from the usual by the dominant role of the keyboard and the cello besides the vocals sung in Hungarian which highlight them in the post-rock scene.

2008's Csend Utca EP represented a direction more likely towards popular alternative rock.

The turning point was the White Noise single in 2009, their first step on a new path that is being followed since then with continuously growing success.

Their debut album entitled Mit Nekem released in November 2009 with support won on the PANKKK tendering organized by the Hungarian Ministry of National Resources. Studio recording and mastering took place at Altrecords and Bakery studios.

During and after the recording several gigs were held in Hungary and in Austria.
In 2010 the band played in Vienna twice accompanying the Austrian Our Ceasing Voice and the French Bye Horus. In Hungary they played with Russian Circles, or Anneke van Giersbergen from Netherlands, Jeniferever from Sweden, Zeni Geva from Japan, Constants from the US, Heirs from Australia, Our Ceasing Voice, Bye Horus and to list some Hungarians: Turbo, marionette ID and pozvakowski.

Their new album entitled Hélium was released on the 10th of April, 2012.

All music is free to download from their website.
