"I See The Storm Is Coming" (taken from: "I Disappear")

Sometimes the work of a record label has an interesting side effect: It defies borders, and cultures, especially with an international artist line-up like ours. Dependent works with bands from the US, Sweden, Germany, UK, Canada, Belgium, Norway, France, South Africa and other countries. With Ginger Snap5 now, we have arrived at a new place on the map: Ukraine. Ginger Snap5 (inspired by the underground horror movie "Ginger Snaps") is a duo from Odessa and Kiyv, Ukraine, and their forthcoming album "Against The Days" has blown us away. Surprisingly, working with Roman Soroka and Alex Pavluk was very easy and inspired us thanks to the friendly communication we had with these two men who live in what we only know as an invaded country. This collaboration has completely warped any preconceptions we might have had about Ukraine and its people - and so does the highly modern and well-produced album that is "Against The Days."

Some will know Ginger Snap5 by a multitude of REALLY good third-party artist remixes including Pride And Fall, Solitary Experiments and Clicks, but few may know that these guys already released an album on the small Russian Label skyQode. The succeeding "Against The Days" now shows a matured band that is still committed to a hybrid of dense, upbeat EBM with glitchy Future Pop, all topped off by Roman Sorokas unique vocals.

The title "Against The Days" expresses everyday struggle of lives torn between stress, pressure and, above all, war and the invasion of the protagonists' home country: "While we finish this record, it is 2017, and in the heart of Europe we have the invaded peninsula of Crimea and the Donbass region where millions of our citizens live. Every day we read terrible news about our soldiers who die in combats, but at the same time, it dictates us to feel courage and resolve. We must fight and win this battle - both on the inside and outside. This is what "Against The Days" is about", explains spokesperson Alex Pavluk. With this background, Ginger Snap5 have delivered a highly unique and thrilling record that sets new impulses and defies borders. The lyric quote "I see a storm is coming" (from "I Disappear") is true in more than one way.
