Bad News From Cosmos - Pearl for Guttiere

We are pleased to announce the release of “Pearl for Guttiere” by Ukrainien band Bad News from Cosmos on Evawyna.

This 7 tracks album conducts its narrative line trough radically different textures, alterning folk songs, drone experiments, pop melodies and haunting synths.

Bad News from Cosmos is a Ukrainian band (Andrii Hrachov and Iryna Bodnar), active since 2010. The duo is mostly focused on creating songs and freeform improvisations narrating of love and death.

“We are devotees of mathematical polyphonies, sequences and improvisations based on pure feeling and dark romantic world vision. We fuel our passion for composing by the inspiration we get from vibrant and harsh sound textures, as well as from the flexibility of the music piece form. We search our style in the area where classical composition form and vitalizing freedom of avant-approach are intercrossed. An eternal experiment is the way we’ve chosen to lead us to what we call a musical perfection.”
