Der Nino Aus Wien

It was about time for us to do a series of exclusively Austrian bands, so the invitation to film sessions for Vienna’s Popfest came more than handy. Since about 2005 Austria’s pop music scene is thriving again, with lots of new bands, labels and events that keep inspiring each other. Yet there is not one scene, instead the approaches towards making music are refreshingly diverse. Der Nino Aus Wien would definitely score high on a ranking of Austria’s most exiting songwriters. With incomparable nonchalance he tells truly Viennese, yet definitely not stereotypical stories in sometimes highly poetic, sometimes very straightforward words. His performance of “Langsam Schwimm Ich Durch Den Fluss” led us down to the sewers below Karlsplatz, where the Hollywood movie The Third Man was shot.
