The Underground Youth - Sadovaya Deluxe
'Sadovaya” was entirely written in St. Petersburg, it takes its name from the street where Craig Dyer was living with Olya Dyer at that time. Most tracks are love songs inspired by Russian novelists and poets Craig was being introduced to, such as Lermontov, Dostoyevsky and Pushkin.
The music was highly influenced by Soviet era Post-Punk bands like Kino and by Russian cinema. Craig said: “the sound of the album has a raw quality that I was never able to recreate. There’s a genuine naivety to the recordings that makes it my most visceral, personal record”.
