history

Joint appearances and collaborations began in 2016, initially under the name Kompost 3 feat. Mira Lu Kovacs . With the release of the debut album And To In A ( Seayou Records ), she renamed the band to 5K HD in 2017 . [1] According to Kovacs, the band name is an allusion to the contrast between a “cold product name”, as is the case with smartphones or HD televisions , and the actually “emotional music”. [2] First appearances with the joint program 5K HD had at the Popfest Wien and at the Jazzfestival Saalfelden , [3] [4] whereupon the official tour start inWUK and a tour through Austria, Germany and Switzerland followed. [5]

The album enjoyed extremely positive reviews in the music press [6] [7] , but could not place itself in the Austrian charts . In 2018, the band was nominated at the Amadeus Austrian Music Awards in the Jazz / World / Blues category and for the FM4 Award . And To In A was also one of the nominated albums for the recording studio award Best Sound . [9]

In September 2019, the second album High Performer was released, [10] with which the band also went on tour through Austria and Germany and played concerts in Belgium, Luxembourg, Hungary and the United Kingdom. As part of the Eurosonic Noorderslag festival in the Netherlands, they won the Music Moves Europe Talent Award in 2020 . [11] From VTMÖ was high performers as the Austrian contribution to select the Impala European Independent Album of the Year nominated 2020th [12]
