BISP students Kilian, Noam, Andrey and Leonid recently represented their school under their band name K.N.A.L and won the Silver Award in the 2023 Online FOBISIA Battle of the Bands (BOTB) Competition. The BOTB this year was divided into Live and Online sections, featuring Lower (KS3) and Upper (KS4-5) Secondary categories. The Online BOTB, which took place throughout February 2023, included 35 bands from 21 member schools.

Well done K.N.A.L on your brilliant performance and for making BISP proud!

Below are some of the comments that K.N.A.L received from the judges:

“Great energy at certain moments in the song, some good contrast, all played well together, fabulous drumming! Good to see the vocalist move around the stage, I enjoyed this performance.”

“Cool performance. Good dynamics. Great energy. Well done singer for performing, drummer timing was tight. Transitions could be better. Tuning voice at times. But well done.”

“Really interesting presentation – loved the theatrical elements! Really great – top marks here!”

“A confident performance with lots to admire. The balance sometimes makes it tricky to hear the clarity of the vocal, but I really enjoy so many parts of this performance – the enthusiasm, lighting, and how much the drummer loves that cymbal! Well done.”
