ARTIST: Igor Volk
LABEL: Fools Paradise
Igor Volk returns with new single 'Labyrinth' - a follow up to his critically acclaimed 'Voice' debut...
'Labyrinth' is a heavier, more psychedelic affair, experimenting with possibilities of electric guitar sound over a driving krautrock rhythm. The song is a look into an entangled love story through the imagery of the ancient world.
Igor Volk is an artist-musician from former USSR who started performing under his own name in London, in 2009. Having previously been involved in a variety of outfits, namely New Young Pony Club, he started writing original ideas, which soon began to take shape when Nick Phillips (The New Sins) came on board as producer. They are currently working on the debut album.
Musically the project is a journey across a diverse map of influences, from electronica and post-punk (Japan, Talk Talk) to rock (ELP, King Crimson, Roxy Music) and jazz (Pat Metheny, Bill Frisell). An attentive listener could also hear a share of native folklore and classical music mixed in on a more subtle level, ex. phrasing - a combination born from his exposure to a variety of genres during childhood and the time spent studying music. The lyrics are often emotionally introspective and touch upon the themes of love, manipulation, identity and repetition as ingredients of daily life.
The first single 'Voice' came out on the 18th of June 2012 and received encouraging reviews in the UK media. The video for 'Voice' was later nominated for Best UK Pop Music Video 2012.
'Labyrinth' will be released on the 20th of May, 2013...
