Iowa Super Soccer
Iowa Super Soccer has formed in 2004, Mysłowice. Our music is inspired by american’s alternative stage, so you can call our sound as sadcore, indie-pop.
After a great success of two EP’s which received favorable reviews we started to work on our first longplay.
First album – Lullabies to keep your eyes closed has called one of the best polish debuts of 2008. Songs such as The River or Cold have shown in the biggest alternative radio stations in Poland.
ISS presented to the audience 12 warm and melodious songs on the second album – Stories Without Happy Ending and again – we received positive opinions from the media and listeners.
We performed on the main polish festivals such as OFF Festival, Opener, Globaltica, Ars Cameralis, Woodstock. ISS was also awarded in spanish Pop Eye Festival, winning in category called European Revelation of 2008-2009 and playing in Cáceres, Spain. Iowa Super Soccer was also touring in China, Ukraine, Germany and Czech Republic.
