Kao jedan od najuspješnijih bendova ovog podneblja, nakon 25 godina
postojanja, 8 albuma, 40 spotova te 60 milijuna njihovih pregleda na
YouTubeu, uz 120000 pratitelja na društvenim mrežama i gotovo 1000 live
nastupa, vrijeme je da ovako dugovječnu bendovsku karijeru Elemental
proslavi koncertom u Puli.
Podsjetimo, svoju punoljetnost 2016. godine Elemental je u Domu sportova
obilježio dotad najvećim samostalnim nastupom kada je okupio 4500 ljudi,
svoju je 20. godinu proslavio objavljivanjem biografije „Sve, samo ne
romantika!“, koju je napisao Marko Podrug, i prvog kompilacijskog albuma
„XOXO“, a za 25. godišnjicu ponovno planiraju podignuti letvicu. Otkad su
1998. započeli kao uigrana trojka, Elemental je prerastao u punokrvni
sedmeročlani bend s eklektičnim live nastupima. Posljednji studijski album
„Ilica“ objavljen je isključivo digitalno, a bend najavljuje i nove pjesme uskoro.
Elemental redovito nastupa na glazbenim festivalima širom regije te je
koncertno jedan od traženijih bendova, a slavljeničkim koncertom još jednom će dokazati kako pjesme poput „Goli i bosi“, „Prokleta
ljubav“, „Bolji si“, „Malena“, „Zašto te imam“, „Iz dana u dan“ ili, primjerice,
„Tako lijepa“ nisu olako nagrađene glazbenim statuama te će obljetničkim
nastupom otvoriti novo koncertno ljeto.
Jonathan is a band of five close friends from Rijeka, Croatia whose paths crossed in 2011. With instant chemistry and ease of making a whole new sound together, these five experienced musicians have ever since been on a mission to tear down geographic and linguistic borders.
The band’s name reflects this idea of unity, Jonathan being a metaphorical single person with a blend of character traits and whimsies from each. Not keen to confine to a single genre, they are quick to point out their past in alternative and punk rock scene, preferring to define themselves against other indie bands of today with a raw sound, primal energy and sarcastic lyrics delivered with genuine feeling. Their music is maybe best described as dark-lens optimism. There is an honest undertone of pain and angst in almost all of the tracks, which allows for a punky vibe, and a surge of energy and hope which leaves you blindsided.
Jonathan officially appeared on Croatian scene in November 2013 with a single “Maggie” which was an instant hit. Accolades from music professionals and audience were only confirmed upon release of their debut album “Bliss” in May the following year, listed as one of the top albums back home and the whole region.
The beginning of their career was marked with a full concert calendar taking them to the clubs and festivals region-wide, with sold out concerts in hometown Rijeka, as well as Zagreb where the band opened for the iconic Editors. Jonathan soon became one of the bands emerging on the regional music scene, being high in quality and most noticeable.
Following the success of the debut album, the year 2015 sees Jonathan publishing an EP “Getting closer is keeping us apart” and nomination for the best new act at Porin, Croatian discography awards soon followed. On top of that, indie giants Editors themselves invited Jonathan to be their opening act on a part of their European tour.
Without any notice of stopping, the band continues to create new music and formats with a conceptual double album “To Love or To Hold”, published in two parts and both gaining immediate success amongst the public, as well as the critics in 2017 and 2018 marking them one of the year’s best editions.
Often being compared to the big sharks of indie rock world, such as Franz Ferdinand, Editors, Interpol, Placebo or The Strokes, Jonathan built their own reputation as a full rock concert machine. Sold out concerts in best and biggest clubs in the whole Croatia, such as the legendary rock club Palach, or Zagreb’s best club Tvornica kulture, performances on the most important festivals in the whole region such as Exit Festival, INmusic, Flow Festival Ljubljana, showcases Eurosonic in Groningen, Waves Vienna and Bratislava, a mini European tour with Editors as their supporting, or opening for indie rock giants The Killers on Exit Festival, really show that Jonathan fits into this stellar constellation.
In March 2019. the bend went on their first one month USA tour, consisting of 15 concerts wich included shows on SXSW festival in Austin, TX and Colossus festival in NYC
