About: Singleton

Singleton: alternative\brit-pop\indie rock band from Kyiv, Ukraine played in E106 of the ArenaCast

One of the main qualities of this band is how accurately they can pass their feelings and emotions to the listener.
When you listen to their songs you empathise, get lost in your memories, feel nostalgic or just smile. You just can't tear yourself away from the wonderful songs of these talented young musicians.
Catchy, bright, distinctive and easy listening indie rock.
You can download Singleton debut album called "The High Seas" for free from their Official site

1. How do you see yourself in 5 years? What is your main goal as a band?
In 5 years we see ourselves having recorded several more great albums, performed at lots of venues and festivals, travelled all over the globe and still have lots of new ideas, plans and goals.

2. Can you name some peculiarities that define the music scene in your town/country?
The music scene in Ukraine is in the development now. More and more cool and talented bands appear and it is really great.
Of course, we still do not have the music industry working but I see some positive changes in this field. But the most important thing is that the audience is ready to listen to the nice music and visit the gigs of the cool local bands.

3. What do you think of episode 106? Which of the other featured songs do you like the most?
The episode is just great! Fritz rocks!
And among the featured songs most of all we liked the acoustic sounds of Kiki Turner and Joe Jury and the cool band from Oslo - Rebel Android!

4. Is there a story behind your song "Get Out Of My Mind"?
There is no some particular story behind it - this song is about a feeling when you want to forget someone you love, when you are tired of the complicated relationship and just want to leave all that behind. This song just describes the feeling all of us once had and most probably will have again.

5. Please tell us about your video “Get Out Of My Mind”. Who was working on it? Who has created the idea and the concept?
The idea of the video came rather spontaneously. Once we visited a very old, deserted but incredibly beautiful building in Kiev, which used to be some baron's residence, but in the soviet times it was transformed into a dormitory. The drunk security guy let us in and when we saw that building from inside we decided that it would be a really great place to shoot a video at.The interior was crazy - old beautiful fireplaces, stained-glass windows, winding staircases mixed with horrible flowered wallpapers and furniture of the soviet times.

So, we talked to our friend Tanya Murugova, showed her that building and she agreed to become a director of that video. She found the cameramen, all the needed equipment and for 1 whole day we were shooting in this strange house. We like this video very much. There is no some specific concept or idea - we just wanted to express the right atmosphere. And I think we succeeded.
