Jiný Metro is a Prague-based alternative folk duo consisting of Klára Čmejrková and Katie Alžběta Brown, occasionally joined by Alex Matějíček for many of their shows. The duo met in grammar school, where they later began singing together and have been friends ever since. Since the release of their first album in 2021, their repertoire has expanded by hours worth of catchy and witty songs about everyday life, relationships and hypothetical situations. Sung in Czech, English and French, their songs are accompanied by a wide variety of instruments such as electric guitar, bass guitar, cello, ukulele, flute, clarinet, keyboards, percussion, autoharp, and toy saxophone. Since 2022, the band has been performing with multi-instrumentalist Alex Matějíček.

2018-2019

The early years of Jiný Metro. Klára and Katie were classmates at school and wrote their first song, Vysavač, to serve as background music for an assignment. After Vysavač, the girls continued to create music together. While performing at events around Prague, they wrote most of the songs that would later appear on the Rande s revizorem album. In respect to their genre of music, the duo chose to use the Czech name Jiný Metro, meaning “alternative underground”.

2020-2021

During a small break between waves of COVID, the girls began to compile and record their songs on an album. For one of the songs, titled French Song, they created their first and only music video, which was released on YouTube in December 2020. They released the whole the album on Spotify on June 4th, 2021, and was titled Rande s revizorem, meaning “a date with the ticket inspector”.

In summer 2022, the band was joined by Alex Matějíček, a fellow composition student at the Prague Conservatory. As a trio, they performed their 100th show, and they continue to work on new music. In 2023, the band began to play its first international shows in Leipzig, Germany and Eibenthal, Romania, and is set to release an EP in early 2024.
