Alternative / Ironic / Post-Punk / RUSSIA
A youthful duet from Novosibirsk BUERAK (БУЕРАК) is often named as Syberian post-punk or Russian new-wave. These are only labels though, the duo’s minimalistic music is sincere, ironic, and revealing a somewhat cynical outlook on everyday life. Drawing influence from the most iconic Russian musicians and past events, BUERAK constructs a nostalgic sound about the dread of modern existence.
It took only a few concerts for the word about BUERAK to get around and their audience is ever expanding. Dolorous, melodic guitars and painfully intimate lyrics are bound to attract both rebellious youths and dwellers in the past. BUERAK sings in their native language, but their mood is universally understood.
