Void Void Contribute "World of Trouble"
Russian quartet Void Void have contributed one more track to our "Water Connects Us" Haiti relief album. "World of Trouble" has an obvious resonance with our theme concerning the poorest parts of the planet being hit hardest by "natural" disasters, particularly since there is more and more evidence emerging that at least some such disasters are in fact "man made".
The band were formed in St. Petersburg, Russia in 2004. Their goal is to express the concept of "the void" using both music and lyrics. They are most likely to be labelled as exponents of the post-rock genre. However there are in fact elements of classic rock, hard, ambient, ethereal and doom in their work. The band has an unusual line up for a rock group: drums, bass and keyboards. Its unique sound largely created around a very special distorted bass, and the almost total absence of guitars of any kind.
