Scala is the most unique band on the planet. An act made up of the classically trained Kolacny Brothers; Steven (piano) and Stijn (conducting) who have turned a 200 strong Belgian all-girl choir into an international phenomenon, performing imaginative reinterpretations of Radiohead, U2, Nirvana and Metallica songs (to name but a few) as well as their equally successful original compositions.
With their spectacular visual performances and uniquely beautiful arrangements of popular rock and indie songs, Scala & Kolacny Brothers have become a word of mouth phenomenon in Europe and the US. Their version of Radiohead’s ‘Creep’ was picked by David Fincher himself to feature on the trailer of hit film ‘The Social Network’ taking the band to a completely new audience. Like the film itself, the trailer has been a huge global hit more than 250m people have seen in the Cinema, on TV or online.
Thanks in part to the subsequent buzz on social media, traffic to the Scala & Kolacny Brothers‘ website went through the roof: their interpretation of ‘Creep’ is an internet phenomenon, watched in various forms around ten million times.
Scala & Kolacny Brothers have sold over 500,000 records in Europe now and performed live at Coachella and SXSW this year. This success was immediately followed by a first record release in the U.K., a sold out show at London’s Union Chapel and a triumphant performance at England’s Latitude Festival where they played the prestigious and exclusive Sunday noon slot.
