Getting To Know... Blizz Club

Having already spent the past year turning out a wealth of riveting releases, German outfit Blizz Club are back at it once again with their vibrant new single 'THE DARK.'

Capturing more of that raw and driven indie-rock aesthetic they are known for, 'THE DARK.' makes for a brilliantly bold and explosive listen. Filled with rich and euphoric textures, a soaring atmosphere, and mesmerising vocals layered throughout, they continue their rise as one of the more exciting names doing the rounds right now.

So with the new single available to stream now, we sat down with lead singer Stoly to find out more about his origins and what has been inspiring him most lately.


What was the first instrument you fell in love with?

I started out with the obligatory piano lessons my parents organised for me but the first time I held a bass guitar in my hands, I fell in love with it.

What kind of music did you love when you were younger?

Mostly I liked Punk-Rock like the sex pistols and nirvana. Also oldschool heavy metal and classic rock.

What was the first album you remember owning?

The first album I bought with my money was “Dookie” by Green Day. Before that, my father gave me “Best of Boston” as a gift.

What is the one song you wished you could have written yourself?

I probably could have given you a hundred examples a few months ago but lately I’m pretty cool with the stuff I wrote until now. Nonetheless I think that “Perfect Day” by Lou Reed is one of the greatest songs ever written.

Do you have any habits or rituals you go through when trying to write new music?

Yes I have, first I need to clear my mind; I don’t meditate that often, but I can’t have any other songs in mind, although I’d love to rip some off. But my songs mostly come from the heart. Basically a scream, a tear or a laughter with a melody added in later.

Who are your favourite artists you have found yourself listening to at the moment?

Turnstile, Bad Nerves, and the Beatles are always on. But I am also getting comfortable in the world of artists like Rosalia, Peso Pluma or more traditional Latin music.

If you could open a show for anyone in the world, who would it be?

Definitely the Arctic Monkeys. I think I can speak for the whole band here. We’ve always been very inspired by their music and follow their artistic evolution with admiration.

What do you find is the most rewarding part about being a musician?

Self-expression, always. Putting yourself into art and letting people be a part of it.

And what is the most frustrating part?

All the distractions. We’re here to make music and go wild on stage but sometimes you get distracted by potential shortcuts to success or thinking that everybody needs to like what you do.

And what is the best piece of advice you have received as a musician?

"Speak your truth, be authentic, all the rest will come as a side product."
