STATE URGE - "White Rock Experience"
State Urge is a band hailing from Gdynia, consisting of four musicians whose shared passion for creating unique music that is hard to classify. They're performing white rock – an original genre. On one side it has roots deep in a classic rock sound, on the other hand it's unpretensional, fresh and most importantly emotionally honest. In 2011 they self-released their demo – "Underground Heart" EP. Enthusiastic opinions about the release allowed the band to be aired on Polish Radio Channel 3 thanks to kindness and by personal choice of redactor Piotr Kaczkowski. Interesting fact is, that the album consisted of almost only instrumental improvisations, with vocals and additional effects added later on. In 2012 the band released another EP, "What Comes Next?". The main point of this release was to find out the answer to the question stated in it's title. What comes next? The group was pleasantly surprised with positive reviews, they served as motivation and driving force to dedicating even more work to creating music. During that time the band succesfully attended many festivals and competitions (winning the FAMA festival in Tricity region and getting honours in several regional competitions) and were aired on popular Polish radio stations (Radio Gdansk, Radio PiK, Radio Alfa, Radio MORS, Radio SAR, Radio MEGATON and others). They also shared the stage during their concerts with known bands such as Cochise, Dianoya, Votum and others.
