The »Myth« album represents a creative collaboration among musicians and specialists from various countries. We recorded it in Russia, visiting different studios in search of rare Soviet synthesizers, vintage tape instruments, and anything that could enhance our sound. A diverse array of musicians contributed to the recording, enriching our songs with vibrant strings and brass sections, not to mention unique instruments from all over the world, like Swedish nyckelharpa and African percussion. We even got three different choirs from Russia, USA, and Uganda. The cover artwork was designed in Brazil.

However, as events unfolded, our original plans were disrupted, making it impossible to complete the album’s production in Russia. We had to finish the album in other countries. The album was mixed in England and mastered in the United States, while we oversaw the process from Turkey and Moldova.
In our music, you won’t find a specific agenda, but you will discover something even more profound. We firmly believe that this is the time when people need metaphysical experiences. Drawing inspiration from the creative legacy of the 1960s to the 1980s, we seem to have made something both original and contemporary.
Imagine garage psychedelic vibes with a touch of stoner magic, expressive female vocals, and warm vintage sound. We mixed in various styles and added exotic instruments to craft a mesmerizing beauty.
»Myth« is all about tapping into a power that exists beyond our five senses, bridging the gap between the subconscious and logic. We’ve tried to capture that essence through our music.
