Sung in English, their electro flavoured three minute garage-come-broadway-hit songs cover various phenomena of culture, pop and politics. Promotional tours to the USA, Great Britain, Finland, Italy, Poland and the Netherlands have been greeted with zealous reactions and a steady growth of their following on the underground network. 'From LoFi to Disco!'....not only perfectly describes the building blocks of Woog Riots' musical world, but also supplies the name of their own Independent label, launched in 2013 with an album of the same title. Executed with much drive and energy, Battisti and Herbert's new venture has already attracted other artists such as "Umherschweifende Produzenten" (aka Knarf Rellöm) and "The Spaghetti Wings" to release material with them. Art, Pop, Pop about Art… in February 2013 Woog Riots wrote a song as an invitation to the Art exhibition “Powerpoint” by Michael Riedel, which took place in the rooms of New York Top Galerist David Zwirner. The New York press described the song as "up-beat, euro-pop dance tune which sounds like a kid’s band version of Kraftwerk”.
Here's a link to the song: www.davidzwirner.com/exhibition/michael-riedel-ny/ In 2014 Woog Riots recorded “The Story of Pop”, which they released as a Download-Single accompanying Karl Bruckmaier’s book of the same title. Press Quotes “Early Modern Lovers meets the soundtrack for a Volkswagon commercial.” Revolver USA Distribution, San Francisco (USA) “Fun, German/Italian, guy-gal electro-pop duo who betray a fondness for Kraftwerk in the odd robotic vocal. Add Squeeze-esque pop hooks – as in track 'Backstage Lemonade' – to that mix and you'll find yourself bopping along.” Time Out, London (UK) "...an up-beat, euro-pop dance tune that sounds like a kid’s band version of Kraftwerk with a girl singer. Very fun!" www.worleygig.com (USA) Italian-German boy-girl act Woog Riots have built up a sizable following around Europe with their own brand of 'twee-rave' and 'riotpop' successfully combining the sound of The Wedding Present and Television Personalities with their unique observations. John Peel would almost certainly have approved.
