A delightful Croatian band : nipplepeople

By Will Oliver, February 23rd 2010 — with 7 comments Band To Watch MP3

I got many promo emails that just bore me. Most of the stuff I get bores me. I got a “Walking On A Dream” remix yesterday morning and though to myself, great, another “Walking On A Dream” remix. I really didn’t want to bother, but I try to give everything at least a few minutes of listening time. Surprisingly, I really enjoyed the remix done by a mysterious band from Croatia called nipplepeople.

I emailed them back asking about them, and they were very shy about sharing their own original songs because the songs are in Croatian. They assumed it wouldn’t be interesting to American audiences. Well most close minded people would probably completely disregard the band right there. I however sensed something special about these guys. I went to their myspace and gave the 2 songs on their a listen. The songs are titled “Sutra” and “Broj”. I was completely blown away with how delightful “Sutra” was. There is nothing better than being caught completely off guard to find a treasure. That is exactly what happened yesterday when nipplepeople emailed me.

4 minutes of blissful electronic/dance music that is breathtakingly fresh. Sure you may not understand what they are saying but it doesn’t blur their ability to craft a beautiful melody through ethereal vocals and clean beats. There is just a really warm airy nature to her vocals that I can’t get enough of. The first 50 seconds of the song are pretty unbelievable. This is electronic music done right! “Broj” is not far behind it. It is a more restrained song, but still maintains a high level of quality. These guys are not amatuers to the game by any means, they sound like they have been doing this for years.

This may be one of the coolest finds of 2010, I am completely eating nipplepeople up!

Check out their myspace. They also have a blog which they say is more English friendly! Songs are posted for download below:

You said you don’t understand a thing because it’s croatian, and you just like the tune. It’s interesting because my friends and i thought it was a nice song until we found the lyrics on the internet – then we really fell in love with this song. So here it is, my english is not perfect, and it’s always difficult to translate songs, especially if it’s like poetry – and this is pretty close, beautiful. I’m just sorry you’re not a native speaker – my translation isn’t even closely beautiful as the song in croatian. I hope someone would do… Read more »


I love this song.

If you like this song check out Das Wegas – Svijet u meni, and other Croatian performers.


I am in love with this song – thank you for promoting them


I just discovered them as well cause a friend from Montenegro emailed me the link. Very good stuff. I also gave it a try with the translation Enjoy Another hands dont have your touch Even though everything you tell me i already know well I am tapping in the dark, in the haze Everything else is in the silence Your voice plays my name the best I look for others and you as well I am hoping, i really am Yet we always get the wrong ones At the end of the day I am still here You, there, alone… Read more »
