The group “Okean Elzy” on June 14 released a new single in the spirit of his early work. As explained by the leader of the group Sviatoslav Vakarchuk, the song “To the sky wife” was written in the winter of 2018. Music and words were written while studying Vakarchuk at Stanford University. The final text was improved after returning to Ukraine.
“The song reminded us “Okean Elzy” of the early two thousandth. We wanted to release it in the style of the first album, but “Into the sky wife” is still different, because there was a modern key, very different level of recording, I sing different than it was then. But the mood reminds me of the years when we worked on the first album, “—said Vakarchuk.
In August 2017, the group “Okean Elzy” he took a creative break for a year and suspended his concert activity. The first after a long break, the band will be held on August 24 at the NSC “Olympic” in Kiev.
