Indie Rock/alternativ/shoe gaze/dream pop


Kai Prehm (vocals & guitar),

Paul Wurm (vocals, guitar & synthesizer),

Christian Schmidt (vocals, bass guitar & guitar),

Stefan Lederer (drums & synthesizer)


The casual, sometimes harsh guitar riffs of Kai,

full of physical exertion on the stage and his distinctive voice,

Stefan‘s rousing , impulsive beats,

often thumping but melodic licks from Christian‘s bass guitar

and the eclectic sound of Paul‘s guitar , mixed with distorted fast riffs,

the combination makes the unmistakable sound of Painted Beehive .


In July 2013 the Four-Piece started jamming and experimenting for the first time.

Soon Kai came up with some lyrics and song ideas, the band members elaborated together.

They published their first self-titled EP, before they played the first concert in April 2014.


In 2015, they performed at different locations, clubs or festivals

(” Sunny Days ” Graz / Austria or Slovenia , Open Air Festival, Styrian Sounds Festival).


The band already supported acts like : I´m from Barcelona, Mile me Deaf ….

They won the ” On Stage Band Competition 2015″  in Gleisdorf.

Painted Beehive can also be booked as main act and have built up a local fan base .


Their latest EP, ” Mango Tango ” has been released in December 2015.

In January 2016 their single ” Monkey Town ” from the EP entered the “Radio Sound Portal Charts”.

and in February 2016 has already reached the TOP 10.
