ABOUT US

It is an indie pop band created by singer, songwriter and producer Joško Klarić. The first official single “Perfect sky” was released in late 2017 in collaboration with the singer and songwriter from Mostar Anja Rikalo. The song won several renowned Croatian top charts and brought them to the first major festivals and independent performances.

After the “Perfect Sky”, “Nothing At All” was the second official single which announced their debut album “Recovery” released on November 15th 2018 for Los Angeles Agency.

BIOGRAPHY

The name Ischariotzcky comes from the Croatian pronunciation of the surname of the biblical figure Judas Iscariot, which is in Croatia pronounced Iškariotski. The name is there to constantly remind us of betrayal, or to ask ourselves whether there is a person we love and have never betrayed somehow?

After the band Pešes, in 2015 Joško Klarić begins to concentrate more on music production and to create music in his home studio Konoba in Brela. Ischariotzcky started as an incognito electropop solo project whose sound was initially more electronic, although the acoustic elements were omnipresent. At this stage, songs “Gauge” and “Food” were released. 

Over time, the number of songs had increased and within Konoba Sessions began preparations for live performances, together with Jure Brekalo on drums, Jakov Puharić on guitar, Petra Klarić on vocals and Petra Šošić on keyboards. A turning point has been made with the invitation to Demofest in Banja Luka in 2017 and Ischariotzcky started to function as a band officially. The classic band approach complemented by synths, samplings, effected vocals, vocal harmonies, percussions and the brass section, which brings “big bend” approach to performance in moments, created a slightly different picture that defined the first part of the Ischariotzcky cycle. The combination of contemporary and traditional and masterly flirting with genres became a resume of their sound that was first heard live at the Šakan Festival where they debuted in a large composition, after the band has been broaden with Ivan Srzić on a bass guitar, Adam Gvozdenović on the trumpet, Tea Bašković on trombone and Borna Augustinovic on percussion. Something later, today’s band composition was concluded with Stipan Popovic on guitar and Daniel Curić on the trumpet.

The first video single “Perfect sky” which was created in collaboration with the Mostar singer and songwriter Anja Rikalo, was released at the end of 2017. The song was recorded in the Groove studio in Mostar, arrangement was finished at Joško’s home studio Konoba in Brela and the final mix and master was made by Neven Marinac at the Morris studio in Zagreb. The spot for the song was recorded by the BONK studio in Orion observatory and atelier of Vice Glibota in Makarska, while Joško is signing the direction and montage. After the single has been released, the band held its first solo concert in the crowded Arte Hall in Makarska, where they presented upcoming album named “Recovery”.

Thanks to the success of the single “Perfect sky”, in 2018 followed an active period with numerous performances of which it is important to highlight the first presentation to the Mostar audience in Croatian national theatre in Mostar, performances at Zagreb Beer Fest and Mostar Summer Fest and, thanks to the INmusic breakthrough competition, winning the main stage of the INmusic festival where they performed alongside world-famous performers such as Queens of the Stone Age, Nick Cave, Alice in Chains, St. Vincent et al.

Their second single “Nothing at All”, which was mostly recorded at home studio Konoba and then completed in Morris Studio, was released in September 2018, while Neven Marinac was again credited for the mix and master and BONK crew for video.

On November 15th 2018 Ischariotzcky released their debut album “Recovery” for the Los Angeles Agency which is available in web shops worldwide. Album contains 11 songs where most of them were made in tavern of Joško’s old dalmatian house in Brela, while parts of acoustics instruments were overdubbed in Morris studio. Album was mixed by Neven Marinac who, together with Joško, signs the album production. The album got very good critique and was declared as one of the best Croatian albums in 2018. 

Ischariotzcky concluded the year with performance on Positive concert in big hall of Dom sportova in Zagreb and with solo concert in Makarska. For the beginning of 2019 they are planing new music video and album promotion in Tvornica kulture in Zagreb.
