With a heart firmly attached to their sleeves, their songcraft delves into the emotional intricacy of personal relationships, asking questions about power and desire. The result of this mixture is a collection of three self-produced records and a handful of singles that cover a range of moods and a complex emotional realm while maintaining a groove and musicality. Soft rock infused pop hits flow easily, surrounded by their signature moody ballads.Picture your fiercest-self taking your more introverted-self on a loving pep-talk-fueled shopping spree. Imagine the feeling of driving down the highway listening to Springsteen with a car full of friends; pair that with the comfort of lying in bed next to a bag of M&M peanuts watching Twin Peaks. Welcome to SORRY GIRLS.BETTER PERSON evokes '80s movie soundtrack nostalgia that speaks in international volumes. Adam Byczkowski’s romantic home recordings, produced in the DIY spirit, have bolstered his career, putting him alongside the caliber of those like Jessica Pratt and Amen Dunes. Mixing his native tongue of Polish with fluid instrumentals on “Zakochany Czlowiek,” smoothing and slowing down ballads like, “I Wake Up Tired,” only begin to describe the nuances of his work. There’s no doubt he’ll become loved across the globe. Thus, we welcome him with open arms to the Bottle stage to make us all...better people.
