Better Lost Than Stupid
Martin Buttrich, Davide Squillace and Matthias Tanzmann had often played together as solo artists, but it was an incendiary back-to-back session between the three at 2010’s Electric Zoo in New York that served as the catalyst for the formation of Better Lost Than Stupid.
After reconvening in the studio, the trio spent months honing and refining their unique high-energy sound, before announcing themselves to the world with the release of their debut single Alto in October 2017. Further releases followed, before the group embarked on a slew of high-profile festival shows (including one-off appearances at Tomorrowland, Exit Festival, Sonus, South West Four, and Creamfields) before closing off this initial run of gigs by headlining an extensive European tour.
With rumours of further live dates, and the prospect of more new music hanging tantalizingly in the air, 2018 is set to be a busy year for Better Lost Than Stupid; and, if they’ve proven anything so far, it’s that we should never expect anything less than the unexpected.
