08 — The PoleVoda-i-ryba (Fish and Water) was founded in the city of Krasnodar (The South of Russia). In 2013 band removed into the city of Saint-Petersburg.
In 2011 Voda-i-Ryba recorded two EPs – Warsaw and Better Times. In august`2014 the band recorded EP America.
Music of band is mix of dark indie and avant rock with gloomy guitar and taut female vocal. In heart of Voda_i_ryba are lyrics poems of Russian poet Ivan Beletsky, translated into English.
The first band’s album – Raw Material – was recorded in 2015 in Krasnodar and St. Petersburg. Through these eight tracks the musicians tried to go deep into the essenсe of such concepts as labour, aging, restlessness, victory and defeat.
The dominant musical role is given to dirty guitar sound, saturated raw synth parts and vocal forcing through the musical canvas.
As well as in the previous release – EP America – the form and matter of the songs were strongly influenced by the works of classical American artists – William Faulkner, Herman Melville, Grant Wood, Edward Hopper.
A bit of South Russian steppe gothic and metaphysical travels across the Hýpanis and Tanais rivers, separating the habitable part of world from the rest of the earth. The dark music of the yellow boars, the crack of horizon and the short roof.
