Four white male people are sitting in a row on a stage made of a layer of Euro pallets. Behind them you can make out a drum kit, on the left and right are speakers and amps. The band LEOPARD is looking into the camera. The man on the left of the picture has short black hair and a full black beard, he is wearing a striped shirt and jeans. He is sitting on a drum stool. Next to him directly on the pallet sits a male person with a bald head and glasses. He is wearing black jeans and a black jumper with a dark blue shirt, the collar of which is peeking out from under the jumper. The third man is also sitting directly on the pallet, has brown, chin-length, curly hair, a moustache and goatee. He wears glasses, a grey jumper, beige cloth trousers, a silver amulet on a chain around his neck and two different coloured socks. The fourth band member sits on a chair where he leans back. He has half-length brown hair and a three-day beard. He is wearing a blue and white striped jumper, blue jeans and white trainers and has his hands folded in front of his belly.

LEOPARD

LEOPARD reminds us of the times when guitar-based music was still a threat. And a promise. And for sure liberation. The four young men, who played last year in the Pop-Kultur Nachwuchs programme, joyfully strum their strings while singing against the system, all with humour and attitude. Offering simple, honest lyrics and cheerful melodies, they fight their way through the irony-infested thicket of postmodern pop music. Crackling, catchy hits spanning post-punk and indie rock with German lyrics. The release concert for their latest EP took place on a Berlin rooftop opposite the prison in Moabit – to the delight of the occupants, to the chagrin of the guards and the police – taking guitar music as threat and as liberation quite literally.
