Siberian electronic prodigy, duo Zimne, came back with their brand new album, breaking a two year silence. If you guys followed our discovery compilation series you might have already know them by their stunning trip-hop track “Sto Let” on Uvarious Artists VOL.4.
These guys is a perfect example of a DIY band. Natasha Shilova‘s refined vocal lines, conceptual and sophisticated artwork and skilled sound production by Anton Kremarenko, makes this duo stand out in trip-hop / downtempo genre diversity.
New album is titled “Saharnaya Golova” (Sugar Head), there are four guest vocalists / musicians on a record.
A split track with The Owl was presented last year, the rest are new: a quite experimental work “Adele” with Ptitsami, ambient pop song “Trip” with Andrey Khrapov and chillwave-ish track “More” with Hale De Mars.
Anton Kremarenko not only makes great music production, but is an author of all the lyrics on the album. I wish you guys could understand Russian, because words in these songs are absolutely poetic and elegant as if it was written by a woman.
“Our main literary influences come from the Silver Age of Russian poetry. We mean people such as Marina Tsvetaeva, Vladimir Mayakovsky, and [later, kindred spirits] like Bella Akhmadulina.”
I do suggest you guys to go and buy this album for as little as $1,70 or more and support musicians to keep’em creating some more masterpieces in the future.
Album mark is 8/10, favourite track is “Nimb”.
