One day in spring this year, Hubert Weinheimer of the Viennese band Das trojanische Pferd told us in utter excitement about a band he had discovered, an Austrian band that was strangely enough better known in Belgium than in Austria, although they had already released an album including compelling pop songs like „Fashion“ or „Cinnamon“. In May, Ginga played a memorable and much acclaimed show at the Popfest in Vienna and since then can count on a steadily growing fanbase and jubilant press reviews, tagging the band as „the next big thing“ from Austria. We meet Alex, Klemens, Emanuel and Matthias in late August during their photo shoot for the Austrian pop-culture magazine The Gap (just in case you wonder about the white canvas) to film them perform the last two songs of their re-recorded and re-released debut album „They Should Have Told Us“ in the beautiful Augarten park. Despite the laid-back park setting the four guys easily get across the energy, intensity and great pop appeal of their songs; indeed so much that a group of excited kids follows them for a while after the end of the session, hoping for more songs to come.
