tupolev are from vienna, austria. they released an ep on the german cdr/netlabel 12rec in 2005 and "memories of björn bolssen" is their first full-length album.
after starting out on folk and postrock influences, on "memories of björn bolssen", tupolev play instrumental songs influenced by classical music, experimental music and jazz, with glimples of their early pop influences popping up from time to time - sometimes difficult but persistently beautiful.
they are currently working on songs for their second album and play concerts in central europe, so far including live shows in austria, germany, italy and slovenia. tours through austria, italy and switzerland are again planned for spring, tours through germany and france for autumn 2008.
