Their mix of shoe-gaze rock with catchy melodies is true ear candy, and their natural stage presence makes us think that this young band is in for a great future in music.”
Eurosonic Noorderslag, 2015

Manon Meurt are Vojtěch Pejša (guitar, vocals), Káťa Elznicová (vocals, guitar), Jiří Bendl (drums) and Jana Karlíková (bass guitar, giggler). Sparkling songs formed by soft and transcendent vocals, hypnotic bass lines, evolving drums and reverbed guitars are a trademark of this young quartet from Czech Republic.

Manon Meurt hail from a small town Rakovník west of Prague. Inspired by the British shoegaze movement of the early 90s and bands such as My Bloody Valentine, Lush, Ride or Slowdive have clearly helped shape the band’s sound.

These quickly rising shoegaze stars have played alongside The Raveonettes, LSD and the Search for God and My Bloody Valentine. During the soundcheck for the latter, while Kevin Shields was still in the locker room, MBV’s sound engineer actually complained that Manon Meurt were playing too loud.
