<BE YOURSELF SO HARD IT HURTS>
Capitano is the type of band that does not have a type.
What started as a mysterious masquerade in 2016, mixing punk attitude and drag theater with sprinkles of rock, indie & pop, has yet evolved into an extraordinary, highly unlikely pop act.
Their musical DNA consists of all those strands of electronica, hip hop, indie and alternative music that either make legs shake or leave hearts trembling.
Their love-hate-relationship with genres and stereotypes has led Capitano through various stages of creative personas. Seeking for pure, unadulterated individuality, Capitano are taking off one mask at a time.
Although always sticking out as the weird ones in the German music industry, Capitano managed to tour Europe, UK, US and Canada regardless, scored three live music video productions by Apple Music, created a shitstorm on German national television, performed alongside big shots from Hip Hop, Rock to Visual Kei and – for a brief time – even toured with a wrestling circus.
Their live performances are chemical: Intense, colorful and highly unstable. Taking pride in their flaws and finding joy in sharing their fearlessness, Capitano seem to gather likeminded people across genres, genders, races and beliefs, whose disapproval for a typecast society led them right into the iridescent bubble of energy that is Capitano.
At the moment, John, Fuzz & Dyve are sporadically on tour in Europe, UK and the U.S., while producing new singles with Grammy-winning producer Jeff Bova (Michael Jackson, Katy Perry) to be released in 2019.
This June, Capitano will perform at Summerfest (Milwaukee, U.S.), the world’s biggest music festival, alongside magnitudes like Bon Iver, Snoop Dogg and Billie Eillish.
