Partizan is a Romanian rock band founded in Bucharest in 2001.
The band's discography contains 3 studio albums: ”Am cu ce” (2002), ”București” (2003) and ”Timpuri Noi” (2019).
Partizan is a 100% Romanian product and represents the natural breath of the Bucharest streets. Partisans avoid everything that means satire or criticism of ordinary people. They bring situations from the real world and translate them into a science fiction one. They create a parallel universe in which we all find ourselves.
Partizan means: Adrian Pleșca ( Artan ): voice, Răzvan Moldovan ( Suedezu): voice and guitar, Adrian Agheniței: bass and Andrei Bărbulescu: drums

Alone at Parties (Romania)
Alone at Parties is about the contradictions that keep popping up time and time again. It’s about loneliness at parties, about bad jokes at funerals, about seemingly unwelcoming cities that you fall in love with on a second visit. Their sound can be described as an indie-folk blend of soft-spoken synthesizers, playful electric guitars which come together around subtle acoustic rhythms and warm and moody vocals. The band comes from Cluj-Napoca & is composed of Andrei, Casiana, Dani, Florin & Lazăr.
Now they enter a new stage in the band’s career — 2023 will see Alone at Parties playing their first full band shows and releasing a bundle of new music.
