Manon Meurt from Rakovník got together in 2011. In addition to singer and guitarist Kateřina Elznicová, the members now include Kryštof Korčák (guitar), Jiří Bendl (drums) and David Tichý (keyboard), who introduced new possibilities and alternatives to their current gripping sound without the presence of a bass player. In addition to the concerts, the four of them made themselves better known with the release of an initially self-recorded nameless six-track EP in 2014. It took the next four years to make a regular album, and Jan P. Muchow became its mentor and producer. MMXVIII in some way represents a new step forward, a new chapter in the group’s working together with the unmistakable Kateřina. It has brought mature music and found the exact balance between the fragile and quiet (almost) intimate passages and dynamic dives into noisy passages.
For their big debut MMXVIII, Manon Meurt earned the nomination for the Apollo Czech Music Critics Award 2018 and they also appeared among the nominees in the Alternative and Electronic Category at the Anděl Music Awards 2018.
