Starting to develop as a guitarist and singer back in 2012, Ilya Novokhatskiy, has brought together a cast of like minded musicians to support him on his quest to bring Russian indie rock music to the world stage with Apache Rose. And with over 10,000 followers on Facebook and over a quarter of a million YouTube views of their last single it seems to be working so far!
Their latest attempt to do so includes the new single Blind Spot, which is a ‘tribute’ to reckless taxi drivers worldwide and with an overarching theme of being careful not to put yourself into situations you can’t control – well we can relate to both of these!
Packed with energy and a knowing sense of humour, Apache Rose capture the inventive magnificence of the 90s Alternative music scene and the urgency and fury of today. They somewhat ironically combine sounds from the British Invasion of the Sixties and the Alternative guitar bands of the Nineties. But certainly are the Russian musical offensive we can all be joyful about!
