April 24,

Concert @
BüzE – Bürgerzentrum Ehrenfeld

Coolness is like style or elegance: you can't learn these things. Sure, you can study them, imitate them and hope that no one notices that you are only simulating them. But in the end it's like this: either you have it or you don't. And the Viennese singer Verified has it.

Verified doesn't like to categorise itself in a genre. If only because, in her opinion, every beat comes from a different genre. But if you had to settle, she would describe her sound as "cloud pop". There are borrowings from spherical rap, mixed with the delicacy of lo-fi and the catchy toplines of pop. It's all wrapped up and perfected in and by the aforementioned unpretentious coolness of an artist who approaches the creation of her art without ulterior motives and whose voice ties a bow around each of her works like a delicate silk ribbon.

Her choice of themes is similar. It's a lot about love, but not classic boy-girl stories. It's about feelings, but not just the superficial ones, the real ones. It's about life, but not necessarily just the flashy adventures, but also the pastel banalities that can be just as exciting and important. In short, it's about natural authenticity and not poses. Verified proves with their music and not least with their attitude that really good, German-language pop music still comes from Austria in 2021. And is female.

Verifiziert's concert is part of the funding project "c/o pop 2022 musichubgermany " and is supported by the Initiative Musik gemeinnützige Projektgesellschaft GmbH with project funds from the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media.
