Katya Gapochka’s eponymous band has always claimed to be “intellectual”: both sound and lyrics are designed to make you think and contemplate rather than hum and tap along. Their main philosophy, “genre matters not — quality does”, finds its reflection in the all-new electroacoustic sound successfully added to contemporary funk/indie rock with a cherry of lead singer’s deeply moving voice on top. “Nezvychaini”, meaning “The Extraordinary”, is a great example.
