Default Re: What Are You Listening To? V2

First post in maybe like 5-10 years. Feels kinda weird.

I've always loved music, and I've been lucky to find a community of music lovers online and become close friends with them, and we're always sharing new discoveries.

During a discussion about Joy Division, one friend told me to check out a Russian post-punk band called Кино (Kino) and I ended up watching a biopic from 2018 called Лето (Summer) which was a fun modern film about the short life of their frontman Viktor Tsoi. Turns out he was born to a Soviet-Korean father, which is fascinating to me and my friend, because we're both children of Korean immigrants.

What's even more fascinating is that the band rose to fame during the fall of the Soviet Union. The lyrics speak volumes. The sound isn't mindblowing, but so far some songs have hit hard, especially this track from arguably their most notable album.

Artist: Кино (Cinema / "Kino")
Album:
Группа Крови (Blood Type / "Gruppa Krovi")
Song:
Спокойная ночь (Calm Night / "Spokoynaya Noch")

Lyrics (Translation):



Rooftops are trembling under the pressure of days
Heavenly shepherd herding the clouds
City shoots into the night with buckshot of lights
But night is stronger, her might is huge

To those who are going to sleep
Have a peaceful rest
The night is calm

To those who are going to sleep
Have a peaceful rest
The night is calm

I've been waiting for this time
And now this time has come
Those who were silent aren't silent anymore
Those who have nothing to wait saddling up
They wouldn't be caught, already wouldn't be caught

And to those who are going to sleep
Have a peaceful rest
The night is calm

To those who are going to sleep
Have a peaceful rest
The night is calm

Neighbors come, they hearing clicking hooves
They can't fall asleep, it disturbs their dreams
Those who have nothing to wait are hitting the road
Those ones who saved
Those ones who saved...




TL;DR - soviet doomer music
