That’s the Way the Strysles crumble
“Strysles” is a rock band from Southern Luxembourg, gathering some experienced musicians passionate about modern rock music. Around 2010, guitarist David Lemmer had the idea to start a new musical adventure after years of playing in cover bands. Together with guitarist/singer Dan Mangiulli and drummer Ben Kehl, they composed the first couple of songs. The sound is influenced by their idols like Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Audioslave, Stereophonics, Alter Bridge just to name a few. Just a little bit later, Sacha Heck, originally a keyboarder, decided to switch instruments and join the band as a bassist.
And there they were sitting together, thinking about a name for the band. It happened that someone brought some “Streisel” to the rehearsal that day, those awesome little pudding-stuffed pastries with a crumbly topping. Yeahhh there it was right in front of them. It‘s just their orthographic deficiency that led to the unusual spelling.
During the last years, Strysles has been playing some concerts in Luxembourg like the birthday concert of “Rockbox” together with “Porn-Queen”“IRINA”, “Grey Station” or yet “The Barcodes”. In November 2013 Strysles organized a big charity event for the Philippines together with “The Neverminds”, “Tuys” and “IRINA” which was a great experience.
Strysles felt the need to renew in the beginning of 2015. What about a new voice? So that Dan could concentrate more on his guitar parts? Not easy to find, but very soon, Ms Elena Drvosanova stepped into the game. Originating from Macedonia, rocker, adventurer, songwriter and humourous person, she relocated to Luxembourg in 2015 and was looking for a new band after some nice projects and rather big success in Macedonia and Paris. Equally crazy-minded, it was clear that she would be their man … uuhm … (front-)woman.
Tic Tac, Tic Tac
After weeks and months of work and with a clear goal in mind, Strysles is hitting the studio in November 2015 to finally release their first official EP on 23rd April 2016 at “Den Hollänner” in Wickrange.
