The Polish cult group Ksiezyc has enjoyed quite a comeback, following their show at Unsound Krakow 2014, their first in two decades. Their first self-titled album "Ksiezyc" (1996) considered one of the 20 most influential alternative music records of the 1990s. It was pressed on vinyl in 2013 in an edition of 500 by the UK's Penultimate Press and has attracted great interest abroad. Ksiezyc released a new album in 2015 called "Rabbit Eclipse," expanding their unique ethereal sound based in Slavic folklore, psychedelia, minimalism and avant-garde theater.

In 2014 and 2015, the group took part in a remarkable project for Requiem Records--a 4-disc box set with historical recordings of "Miniatures" by the Polish pioneer of electronic and electro-acoustic music, the composer and sound engineer Eugeniusz Rudnik. Apart from older tracks, the album contains new compositions by various artists who freely interpreted Rudnik's music. In 2016, Ksiezyc was invited to collaborate with the Polish Radio Theater to record music for William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, a radio drama by Darek Blaszczyk.
