Eurosonic Noorderslag 2022 conference and showcases will once more take place online. 6 Austrian acts were chosen as one of the most relevant upcoming acts to showcase for the Europe's live industry gathering. Their representation is looking forward to networking with you, and all acts are open for interview requests. Indie-hip hop group Sharktank might already be familiar to you after their successful showcasing at Reeperbahn Festival 2021, as well as the Anchor-nominated alt popper Florence Arman. The psychedelic cosmofunk that Taskeshi's Cashew represents is hard to forget once you've heard it. Sofie's name has spread after her collaboration beat Abeja with +15M Spotify streams to date. Friedberg from the FIFA soundtrack brings rock to the roster, and Aramboa takes care of showcasing Austria's electronica scene.

Florence Arman (AT/UK) Alt pop
Florence Arman is an established singer-songwriter, who has worked with artists like Rhys Lewis, The Kooks, Barns Courtney, G-Flip, Bakermat, filous and Harry Hudson.

Friedberg (AT/UK) Alt rock, pop
With her escapist blend of frenetic post punk, alt-rock and alluring pop-infused songwriting, Friedberg’s sound is primed for a night out. Born out of a vision to create a totally new sound and a pulsating one-of-a-kind live show, Friedberg has over 10 million streams, global radio success, press support across Europe, syncs including FIFA, Netflix, BBC and much more! At Eurosonic, they will be premiering new music at their 2022 show. Debut album out in late 2022.

Sharktank (AT) Indie, hip hop
Hip hop meets pop, indie joins rap: Katrin, Mile & Marco have found their characteristic sound between playful feel-good beats that meet conscious rap lines and melodic vocals. Their debut single Washed Up already hit a nerve and was streamed over 2 million times on Spotify by now. It must be talent, perfect chemistry or both that allowed Sharktank to finish and release their debut album Get It Done successfully in only one year in summer 2021.

Takeshi's Cashew (AT) Psychedelic cosmofunk
Go to your record shelf and pick out that quirky (and unforgettable!) folklore vinyl you once found on a flea market. And now imagine that sound being complemented by vintage synths, flutes, twangy surf guitars, a hell lot of space echo... and electronic downtempo beats! Takeshi's Cashew (Laut&Luise, Berlin) are a newly formed psych-funk group that explore the boundaries of club culture, world music & 70's psychedelia. New album out late 2022.
