Mosquito Stage – 13.07.2019
The eight-piece from Zagreb won over Croatian reviewers and audiences. Their self-titled debut was mentioned numerous times as one of the best Croatian releases in recent years, taking the group to local festivals such as INmusic, SuperUho, Tam Tam, Tabor Film Festival, Velvet and others. Their specific audio-visual expression eludes genre definitions, similarly seeking out inspiration. In this way, Porto Morto is a sort of mini big band of various influences. This spring the band released it’s second album titled “Portofon” (March, 2019). Porto Morto are Roko Crnić (vocals, bass guitar), Hrvoje Klemenčić (keyboards, vocals), Matija Brajković (guitar), Matej Perić (drums), Marijan Uroić (percussion), Antun Aleksa (trombone, vocals), Juraj Borić (trumpet, vocals) and Marin Živković (saxophone).
“In the alternative sector, the best album was released by Zagreb-based art rock band Porto Morto, whose self-titled debut is the biggest domestic surprise of the past season.” ILKO ČULIĆ, 24SATA EXPRESS
