Peremotka: Reflecting On The Past in Their Own Way
Written by David Paicu.
Embracing their bygone days and experiences, Peremotka is a post-punk Russian band looking to create a sound to reflectively dissect their nation's history.
Brimming with a hope born from the freedom of a post-Soviet state, Peremotka have established a sound that delineates itself from the sounds of post-Soviet bands such as Molchat Doma by using the past as an optimistic juxtaposition to the future. Drawing on numerous inspirations, they tackle the pleasure associated with nostalgia in their unique way.
Radio Monash sat down with Peremotka to get a sense of their M.O, where they come from, and where they draw their art from.
"Our songs have no specific political connotations, but in them, we express the concern of the young generation of our country: what to do next? what to strive for? when the happy time comes?"
