Drajnarjuva vampa or Drajnar Boys are the brothers Tomaž and Jernej Hostnik, a pianist and accordionist (both music school graduates) who have taken their rich musical knowledge to new heights with an unparalleled chanson-esque, Tom Waits-like approach to their self-penned songs.
Tomaž’s blunt lyrics, sung in dialect, brim with gallows humor, sharp social commentary, obscure folk imagery, hoarse vocals and melodic ingenuity, and reveal masterful storytelling abilities, which earned them first prize at the International Singer-songwriting Festival in Ruše, Slovenia in 2016. Their forthcoming second album promises to deliver even more eccentric rawness than its predecessor. (Katarina Juvančič)
Drajnarjuva vampa sta brata Tomaž in Jernej Hostnik, akademsko izobražena pianist in harmonikaš, ki sta svoje
bogato glasbeno znanje požlahtila s šansonskim, »waitsovskim« pristopom k ustvarjanju avtorske glasbe. Iz
Tomaževih narečnih besedil brijejo obešenjaški humor, ostra družbena kritika, obskurna ljudska metaforika, hreščeči vokali in melodične domislice, ki razkrivajo mojstrskega pripovedovalca zgodb. To so opazili tudi na mednarodnem festival Kantest, kjer sta brata leta 2016 prejela prvo nagrado. Njun prihajajoči album, drugi po vrsti, obljublja še več surove ekscentričnosti kot njegov predhodnik. (Katarina Juvančič)
