On the sand
"On the Sand" is a new music project of the Directorate of the International Platonov Arts Festival, which unites modern Russian bands and is aimed primarily at the young audience. On the third day of the open-air event, Voronezh residents will meet indie pop groups.
"One of the most interesting rock performers of the moment," – this is what Afisha Daily wrote about the Moscow band "Vtoroy etazh porazhaet" last year after the release of the album "Dvortsy". Combining psychedelic post-rock with dream pop, intricate rhythms and ethnic elements on the new disc, the musicians convey through their songs that state of reflection, when even in the darkest times hope for light does not disappear.
Synth-pop romance combined with texts in the Tatar language is the distinctive feature of the Kazan band "OMMAGE". The interweaving of modern poetry and nostalgic sound unexpectedly takes the listener several decades back into the atmosphere of disco and British indie pop. "This is how The Weeknd would sound if he ate echpochmaks and drank ayran," the blog "Rodnoy Zvuk" reviews the band's new record.
"Sozvezdie Otrezok" is a project in which members of the "Hadn Dadn" band – Varya Kraminova and Nikita Chernat, author and vocalist Anton Dvortsevoy and sound producer Iskander Yerimbetov met. Distinctive alternative pop by "Sozvezdie Otrezok" is a wide range of dance music with massive synths, guitar in unexpected manifestations and flirting with tradition and psychedelia. The brightest hallmark of the band is lively costume numbers with the overflowing energy of a rock concert, sexy disco and bewitching mystery.
