Strachy Na Lachy

The formation was established in 2001 by Grabaż and Kozak, previous founders of Pidżama Porno. The first line-up was completed by bassist Lo and guitarist Mariusz Nalepa. In 2003, the group signed a record contract with an independent record company SP Records. Kuzyn - drums and Anem - keyboards joined the group. In December of the same year, their debut album ‘Strachy Na Lachy’ was released.
In the spring of 2017, Tom Horn leaves the group; he was the producer of all albums of the band to that date, playing also on keyboard. Łukasz Sokołowski becomes the new keyboardist of the group.
The public had to wait almost 4 years for new songs of Grabaż. On 29 September 2017, the sixth studio album ‘Przechodzień o wschodzie’ was released. Music from this album refers to the first release of the group. Nice melodies, lots of dance rhythms and acoustic sounds make up to the term ‘stoppop’, which the band uses to describe music from ‘Przechodzień’. In the case of this record, Strachy, for the first time in their career, entrusted work on the final shape to someone from outside. Activator & Smok at Studio AS One recorded keyboard parts and were responsible for mixing and final sound of the record. ‘Your butterflies’ was the album’s first single. In
Third Program of Polish Radio, it was made the ‘song of the day’ and got to main chart of hits. The second single, which appeared on September 11, 2017, is the song titled ‘Co się z nami stało’.
