Daniel Zubkov, Viktoria Podroiko and Evgeny Glebov from Kiev in Ukraine form the downbeat-psychedelia out-fit Hiels.
Pipettes of sparkle lay within the out-put of Hiels which gives the morose starting points an intriguing circumlocution that spirals its way into the brain. The room darkens as the trio enter the room, casting a pall that envelopes the listener in dank claggy moss, from which alpine flowers emerge like surprising psychedelic triptychs.
The murky bass casts aside sunlight as grey tinted percussion hammers in rusty iron nails and a monotone vocal shuffles across the floor, only for guitar to stand in cater-corner of sunny disposition giving Hiels a striking alarm that brings joy to the ear as the trio are able to contort from gnarly knots to trippy elasticity.
Following on from the three track single Hardbeat of last year, Hiels are finalising their début LP with the track The Nature’s Song being the first to playground. A number that finds the trio extending their conceptual commentary of the world in which they find their stomping ground with guitar being given more expanse into psychedelia simultaneously lifting the voice in harmony. Bass and drum remain stoic nay-sayers, giving the track an inner-turmoil of considerable interest.

From the war-zone of Luhansk in Ukraine Anton Cherednychenko (Vocals / Guitar / Synth), Nikita Voloshanovsky (Drums / Synth) and Dima Walewski (Bass) still manage to release music in the form of the synth-rock out-fit Seven Waves.
There is a surprising warmth that emerges from the speakers as Seven Waves reflect of turmoil not in angst, rather in considered contemplation of the rocket blasted buildings in their surrounding perimeters. The electronic kit allows the duo to provide the audience with shimmering stacks of Cumulonimbus cloud which drift across the room drafted with inner turmoil.
An ever present percussion taps across the ears like a sentry on duty, whilst guitars hum in the background as a vocal spears to anxious upper notes and Seven Waves utilise the synths to paint the imagery of the thoughts offered.
Formed back in 2013 with the idea of extracting cohesion betwixt division Seven Waves found themselves torn asunder by the bullets flying and the members segregated to slightly more hospitable climes, before facing the reality of staying alive was the challenge and finalised their first EP.
Now set to work on a second EP for our consideration. Those of longer stay will recall from 2010 an Afghani trio – Kabul Dreams – who are still able to navigated a path of war-zone. Of less certainty is D.J. Foundation from Mosul in Iraq who is now presumed dead after a year of no contact by anyone.
