Passenger of the Month im Juli 2014: theAngelcy
theAngelcy was founded in the hot summer of 2011 in Israel and quickly became well known in the local scene. The band, independently managed, gained considerable popularity and achieved quite a lot in its different fields of activity: Radio 3 major hits in Israel “Dreamer”, “The Call” and recently “My Baby Boy” were featured on the most important playlist in Israel (Galgalatz). “Dreamer” was taken directly from the band’s demo, “Begginers’ Love” (2011), while the next two were released as singles from the band’s debut album, “Exit Inside” (2014).
