You can look to the future with hope. Interview with Neon Lights

St. Petersburg electronic duo Neon Lights was created by two music critics Yevgeny Lazarenko and Max Hagen, in response to the many cries of offended musicians “first try, then criticize.”

Neon Lights is a vibrant new-wave dance project that sounds equally good both on the festival stage and in the club space, and even from the disc of a beginner DJ in a bar on Dumskaya Street.

In anticipation of the band’s performance on May 10, BritishWave.ru talked to the musicians in the new A2 club’s Sputnik Hall, asking them about festivals, the future of the music scene in Russia, and learned the formula for a successful band.

Are you worried about the future?
Max Hagen: I worry, even like that. Yesterday I went to the store and not just worried, I was terribly paired when I got a cash receipt for some garbage. Today, he became even more tired when our keyboard player, who returned from a forced link, began to push ideas on how to get to Moscow. I don’t know what Continue reading

10 frontmen who showed themselves in solo work

Any musical collective, good or not, has its own leader – it is the founder, vocalist, songwriter, ideological inspirer and a great charismatic, in the end (underline what is necessary). In short, the frontman is a person without whom there would be no group.

But there are guys among them who have proven that they are capable of musical exploits and beyond collective creativity. BritishWave.ru selected 10 frontmen who also showed great performance in solo roles.

Not surprisingly, it was the magnificent frontman of the reunited Blur, Damon Albarn, who opened our selection. We know Damon also from third-party projects like Gorillaz and The Good, The Bad and The Continue reading

Paul Weller: In Paul We Trust

Sunset The Jam during the commercial zenith, the total debacle of The Style Council, returning to the scene as a nostalgic rocker with recent albums as charmingly chaotic as the baskets from the flea market: Paul Weller has been doing what he wants for 40 years. Looking back you can understand that you can trust him. Although this is sometimes difficult.

My ever-changing mood
The last precedent was 8 years ago: Paul Weller just recorded a live album, “Catch-Flame!” First new songs, then the songs loved by the fans, solo hits and, finally, the powerful classics of the past: The Style Council songs “Shout To The Top”, “Long Hot Summer” and The Jam’s tracks “That’s Entertainment” and “Town Called Malice” . The 2007 Weller is the guarantor of an inspiring, furiously masculine rock show. His group dissolves in long instrumental passages. Fanaticism, showing not narcissism, but self-forgetfulness. The concert is very lengthy and at that time almost 50-year-old musician was losing energy by the end of the show. He could continue to do this forever: Paul Weller in an endless victory circle. Like Dylan and Young. Continue reading
