Kedr Livanskiy’s new track was recently mentioned again by Pitchfork. For non-Russian listeners this project by Yana Kedrina seemed to appear out of nowhere, but in fact she has been well-known in Russia for a while.
“Razrushitelniy Krug” (“Destructive Cycle”) is an opening track of Kedr Livanskiy’s debut EP, “January Sun”. The track is about “self-reflection becoming self-destructive in a vicious cycle.”
She goes on to explain that it follows the Winter of other EP tracks and is “not all doom and gloom; April is almost tropical in its celebration of the arrival of spring. It’s for exploring the Russian countryside after the sun has unlocked the trees, debris and dilapidated buildings frozen in time.”
