The Blaze to headline Metronome Prague 2024

The Blaze will headline Metronome Prague 2024

Festival organisers have introduced a new identity and announced that together they will go BEYOND THE BOUNDARIES OF MUSIC. Who else to embark on this journey with than THE BLAZE? The French duo entered the world of music from the realms of film and photography, evident not only in their highly narrative music videos, for which they have garnered numerous awards, but also in their performances. During their sets, they blend musical production with their cinematic artistry.

The French music duo, THE BLAZE, consists of cousins Guillaume Alric and Jonathan Alric. They reveal their artistic selves through a combination of electronic music, audiovisual elements, and emotive lyrics. Before delving into music, both were involved in the world of cinematography and photography. They believe these two worlds (music and picture) are inseparable. Their creations thus form atmospheric and evocative soundscapes, and during live performances, they blend their musical production with the art of film.

With music videos garnering hundreds of millions of views on YouTube, THE BLAZE has earned numerous awards. Their first single Virile and subsequent EP Territory (2017), quickly gained recognition from both audiences and critics. Their debut album, Dancehall (2018), propelled them onto major global stages. In their second album, Jungle released in March last year, they reflect on their experiences from touring various world metropolises. The album provides a glimpse into the inner workings of the ubiquitous concrete jungle, where intimate stories and emotions are hidden.

Witnessing THE BLAZE live is, therefore, an audio-visual experience that draws the audience into emotive stories told through music and powerful visual projections.

Even the performances of Icelandic musician DAÐI FREYR are not just about the music. In June, he will showcase his iconic choreographies that have made him one of the most distinctive participants in recent editions of the Eurovision Song Contest. So, start practicing the viral dance to the hit “Think About Things” as soon as possible, so we can all kick it off together in June.
