Czech Republic and Prague especially have developed a vibrant DIY-underground scene with avant-garde approaches to creating new forms of punk and noise music. One particularly interesting outfit is v0nt, a three-piece that takes influence from dark techno, metal, harsh noise, and punk music. Though they all started with a background punk, they exchanged their drums and guitars for synths and drum machines, ending up with something very exciting and undeniably catchy. With their unique sound and intense live performances, they manage to bring the tension back into dance music. It’s encouraging to see that punk music has still a lot of different ways to go - and v0nt is definitely carving one of those paths.
