Gudrun von Laxenburg

From a jamming session at a Friend’s party to a major label deal
and perFormances at some oF europe’s largest electronic music
Festivals in the space oF seven years with no release history
whatsoever: word oF mouth, unhurried hype, natural development:
gudrun von laxenburg’s story is a rare Find in modern music… and
it’s as real as their beats.
Friends since their teens, July, Christoph and Daniel: A jazz-trained drummer,
a classically trained violinist and hard rock guitarist respectively,
there was never any question that the Viennese trio wouldn’t enjoy a life
in music… Although they didn’t think it would be done with such a happy
accident.
“It all started out as a joke. We never sat down and said ‘right let’s make a
serious hard-hitting band’ Even our name is a joke: we just took the street
names we lived on and made an aristocratic name out of them. The joke is a big
part of our live shows. We’re not cool kids all dressed in black or covered
in bling, we’re there in costume, making noises and having a good time with
the audience.” – Daniel
Their debut show, performed for a film director friend’s movie launch, formed
everything you need to know about Gudrun von Laxenburg: their roots and spirit
are 100 percent live… A full steam genre-defying fusion surcharged with
raw drum power and synths and a sound that sits somewhere between Daft Punk,
Digitalism, Justice, The Prodigy and the Chemical Brothers. For their debut
performance, in true punk spirit, they collected a bunch of samples and just
jammed out. No clicktrack, no backing tracks: rave done in the most rock ‘n’
roll way possible… And delivered in pristine overalls that have since been
developed into the space-age LED tailored suits you seen on stage today.
