Șuie Paparude is a Romanian music band. They are recognized as having a distinct sound and style, comparable with very few other local bands.
Newborn autumn of ’93, Suie Paparude was originally a five-piece alternative rock band that split one year later. The remains were the two Ms: Mihai Campineanu and Mihai Dobre – the band’s everlasting core. The two performed an innovative industrial electronic style, being joined between 2002 and 2008 by a third member – Junkyard.
Genuine proof of them being “the most successful EE band of the genre” cleverly combining break-beat or electro with uniquely melodic vocals, are their popular tracks, that musically speak for themselves: Pentru inimi (For the souls), A fost odata (Once upon a time) – over 200.000 hits on Youtube in less than 6 months, Cu zambetul pe buze (A smile on the lips)
Șuie Paparude’s list of opening acts is both long and prestigious: Propellerheads, Moby, Ganja Kru the legendary Depeche Mode (2006), Exploited, Adam Freeland, Goldfrap, Stereo MC’S and N.O.H.A.
