Alternative Rock with the sound of glorious retro gaming consoles – That’s Furious Feedback, a five-piece band from Vienna.
Initially being a solo project of frontman Daniel in the year 2010, Furious Feedback soon evolved into a full band in 2014, further including Alex (Drums), Mia (Bass), Ronja (Keyboard) and Paul (Lead guitar).
The songs that Daniel originally released in the first solo album named We need to breathe became their highly polished and self-produced debut album PRESS START, containing 4 additional tracks, available on all popular streaming platforms since April 26th 2019.
The style of Furious Feedback is mainly characterized by sounds of retro consoles – like the specially modified Nintendo GameBoy Color, a Commodore 64 and similar gear from that time period – who are combined with various rock influences. Big influences are bands like Machinae Supremacy, I Fight Dragons, Muse and other various artists from the Chiptune-scene. The bands sound makes a nostalgics heart beat faster and makes you dust off your childhood classics and dive into the limited, but therefore great soundtracks.
Currently, the band is working on their new album called Villains, which, contrary to the rather happy athmosphere of the first album, takes a turn into a more dense, more heavy direction. Game on!

Founder and frontman of the band. He brings the basic arrangements into the rehearsal room to polish them with the rest of the band and to get them to the bands standards.

Equipment: Bass

The longest participating member of Furious Feedback after Daniel and an ace on bass.

Together with alex she’s part of the fundamental core of the band and shines with versatility and a talent for improvisation.

Equipment: Drums

The unshakeable clockwork of the band has music in its blood since he was a child and sets the pace masterly for Furious Feedback. Together with Mia, he provides a rock-solid foundation for the songs and also knows how to provide the necessary spice through targeted emphasis and rhythm changes. He also takes care of the samples and backings that he has available on his digital drum pad and mostly keeps track of the tech and gear in the background.

Equipment: Piano, Synthesizer

Originally stemming from the field of classical music, Ronja has taken over a large part of the synthesizers and piano interludes and offers a wide range of classical piano sounds, string ensembles and synthesizers. In addition to her stage piano, Ronja uses a MIDI keyboard to operate a modified GameBoy in order to elicit the sweet retro-sounds that are typical for Furious Feedback. Favourite key? E Minor.

The main guitarist and newest member of Furious Feedback. He trumps with a high level of adaptability and a broad knowledge of music theory and audio technology and, as a magician on the guitar, helps wherever Daniel quickly reaches his limits. Together with Ronja and Daniel, he leads the complex melody fraction and always strives for a clear and well-matched sound.
