«вагоновожатые» (vagonovozhatye, tram drivers) is the experienced team of tram depot workers who accidentally found a mic and a sampler forgotten by someone of the passengers in the cabin. They already had a guitar and drums. Since then they’re almost never seen in the repair bay. Members: Anton Slepakov (voice), Valentyn Paniuta (electronics, guitar), Stanislav Ivashenko (drums). Now they release their debut album.
Anton Slepakov: «Recording is a meticulous process and the hardest part of working with energy-intensive music is a search for the golden mean between electronic and live sound. These songs reveal our new sense of reality. It’s determined this way since January, 2014». The band will play album release show at Sentrum, Kyiv, on the 7th of November.
