About the band
Komety are one of Poland's most significant alternative bands of the 21st century. They arose on the ashes of the trio Partia, when their leader Lesław (guitar, vocal, music and lyrics) decided to call Komety into being.

Since then, the group have produced six studio albums and one live album. The 2003 release of their début mini-album “Komety” was a major event which helped popularise the rockabilly style in Poland.

Both in Partia and Komety, Lesław has frequently sung about city heroes, outsiders, nocturnal vagabonds and his own loneliness – usually in a most expressive manner. “Via Ardiente”, regarded by many fans as the saddest Komety album, included such evergreens as "Bezsenne noce" (“Sleepless Nights”) and “To samo miejsce ("The Same Place”). The outstanding “Akcja V1” included the song “Spotkajmy sie pod koniec sierpnia" ("Let's Meet at the end of August”), one of the most stunning Polish works inspired by The Smiths. And in 2011 the album “Luminal” included the anti-corporate “Karolina” and the heart-rending ballad “Mogłem byc tob±" ("I Could Have Been You”) with its Motown inspired sound.

Their 2014 release “Paso Fino” reflects more optimism and allusions to nature and appears to be the group's most mature and thoughtful proposal to date.
The single "Bal nadzei" (“Ball of Hope”), promoting the album, is virtually an anthem devoted to those seeking love despite the vicissitudes of fate. The live "Bal nadziei" album, released in 2016, confirms the group's consistantly high level of performance.
The Kometys' creative output, reflecting the rich sounds of decades past, has won over fans not only in Poland but in other countries as well. Komety have performed in many countries including Mexico, where an English-language version of “The Story of Komety”, containing the group's biggest hits, appeared in 2008.
Many selections have appeared in compilations released in such countries as the USA, France, Finland, Germany, Japan and Russia.
In spite of several line-up changes over the years, Lesław's poetically ambivalent voice and lyrics, often set in a Warsaw landscape, have remained the group's epicentre and defining hallmark. His inimitable style ranks him among the leading authors of his generation.
