Disappeared Completely
Indie pop

Ukrainian electronic indie-pop trio that will turn your life into a real-time movie. The cinematic music of Disappeared Completely blends soothing acoustics with smooth electronic synths and organic duo-vocals. It’s like The XX married Massive Attack with Radiohead mood. More than a million streams won’t lie, so join the club.

The Unsleeping
Bedroom punk

Five twenty-something guys started rocking in the middle of nowhere and made their way to top festivals, including one of the major European stages, Sziget. Self-identified ‘bedroom punk’, The Unsleeping organically combine the destructive rock of IDLES with the tender indie melodies of The Neighbourhood. Prepare to sing along to every song & feel the full range of emotions, accompanied by Stanislavsky system-based dramatic performances, nicely reminiscent of Joy Division.

Zbaraski
R&B, dream pop

Zbaraski is a musician and sound producer from Lviv, who was born in the city and grew up in the mountains. He creates a sound unexpected for the Eastern European scene, and one which can be singled out for how well-produced it is. His debut EP Bo Ya Tak Khochu (‘Because I Want It Like That’) was released in 2019 to public acclaim, and established Zbaraski on Ukrainian scene as a promising new wave artist. In a nutshell, Zbaraski’s ‘bedroom pop’ music combines old R&B, soul, and hip-hop, with a base of Ukrainian lyrics sung in silky falsetto.

Alyona Alyona 
Rap

It all began when Alyona Alyona released the first companion video to her song “Рибки” (Fishes) last October, which went viral on YouTube and has meanwhile collected over a million views.
