Biography

"We don't play technical music, we're interested in feelings, that we express with the help of sounds.....We're a band defined as a band playing original variation of psycho-cold wave that is mixture of a melodic, psychodelic, cold sounds soaking with melancholy. Our lyrics express feelings about lost, alienation and about trying to save this what’s still living in us. Live events are our strong side, that's why we're trying to play them as more often as possible.”
