The Case releases first-ever fully recorded concert

Romanian alternative rock band The Case continues a whirlwind year with its first-ever fully live recorded concert, featuring electrifying live renditions spanning their prolific tracks, including the latest singles “After You”, “Throne”, and “Fever”. Recorded during their show at Nemesis Art Club in Timisoara, the concert was nothing less than spectacular, leaving a lasting impression and offering an exciting, energetic, and unforgettable experience.

“It was a great concert. We really enjoyed it because it was in a small to medium-sized venue (for Timișoara) so we could feel the audience very close to us so it was easy to create the vibe and the energy we always love at a concert,”

the band says.

The Case’s live performance was a memorable, yet intimate experience of alternative rock, grunge, and garage. A lot of time and effort was put into their show, as the artists saw this as an opportunity to document and sing their latest singles. There are also a lot of moving tracks, featuring the talents of the four members, Alfred and Cristian Paros, Mihai Bele, and Adrian Istodorescu.

“Each of us has its favorite when it comes to performing a song live. A general rule is that newer songs tend to be performed with more energy because we favor them more than the old ones. If we had to pick a favorite, it would be “Run.”

It’s no secret that The Case deals with emotion with every track they’ve released, and this live performance perfectly encapsulates what the project is all about – a fight with your inner self, an expression of beauty, and an infatuation with the world so deep it hurts. The band’s lyricism is evidently born from deeply personal experiences, making it immediately accessible and effortlessly easy to connect with. In fact, The Case explains that:

“’After you’ is about the struggle that takes place when trying to resuscitate a broken relationship, about trying to reconnect and to find common ground. It also raises the question if that is the right way to go about it or it might just be better to move on and go on separate ways.

‘Fever’ is temporarily set on an evening, at a dinner, when the breakup message is communicated. Although that was supposed to be just a formality it had an unexpected impact. The song focuses on the visual and sentimental scenario that takes place there.

‘Throne’ is about the regret of living a chaotic life with no long-term plans, about the moment of acknowledgment and about the fear that it might be too late to go back.”

Simply put, it is difficult to ignore when these talented musicians take the stage. Be sure to stay tuned as the band will announce more live shows in the upcoming weeks.
