“Jate” is definitely not the most representable song of the post-punk sound Nina Bulatovix usually provides but it’s definitely one of the highlights of their 2014 album of the same name.
It works best as the magical end of the album that brings amazing sounds mostly made only by drums and bass and of course vocals which provide lyrics reflecting the society of today and tomorrow. “Jate” for instance means “flocks” and the question of the song is: “What kind of flocks did we raise?”
Nina Bulatovix actually started as a rebellious act against the reckless practices of the local administrations regarding the city of Maribor as the European Capital of Culture in 2012 and their plans for renovating the Pekarna Cultural Centre. The act evolved into a serious band which is nowadays best consumed live.
The beautiful video shot at the botanical garden of Ljubljana was directed by Katarina Rešek – Kukla, one of the most prominent young music video directors in Slovenia at the moment, who’s also a leader of a band named Napravi mi dete.
