Surganova and the Orchestra – “Zavtra” (“Tomorrow”) (Premiere of the Album, 2021) 

 

The track list of the album “Zavtra” (“Tomorrow”) by “Surganova and the Orchestra” band consists of ten songs: “Shila Osen” (“Autumn was sewing”), “Trukachi” (“Stuntmen”), “Kolchuga” (“Chain mail”), “Krovotok” (“Blood flow”), “Kurator” (“Curator”), “Fluger” (“Weathervane”), “Zavtra” (“Tomorrow”), “Katapulta” (“Catapult”), “Flanel’ (“Flannel”), “Pazly” (“Puzzles”). The title song and “Trukachi” (“Stuntmen”) are featuring Nastya Polevaya, a famous rock-singer. Nastya was by chance at the studio at the time of the recording, and it was “Zavtra” (“Tomorrow”) that became the song that made the strongest impression on her.

“It’s like the birth of a long-awaited child, a very pleasant event and joy that we want to share,” the musicians said at the presentation. – We were doing it from our hearts and with great pleasure. Therefore, we are waiting for impressions from a variety of people!

By the way, the story of the album creation is rather unusual. The work began two years ago, and the most of it occurred in the difficult pandemic times, when the artists faced the concerts cancellations and closing of everything.  The second part of the album was recorded literary “on vacation” at a country resort near Saint Petersburg in a kind of cottage-studio. It turned out to be a creative experiment – the songs of the disc are very different stylistically and in spirit, these are the improvisations of all the musicians of the band.

“I don’t play music – I’m  playing with  music, I’m experimenting,” – the artist commented it in one of her interviews.

Some texts of the double CD were written by Svetlana herself, the other tracks are based on the lyrics of Saint Petersburg poets. Initially the singer wanted to title the album after another significant song “Pazly” (“Puzzles”).

“Our whole life is woven from various fragments that eventually come together in one puzzle,” Surganova believes.

Finally,  the name was changed to a more life-affirming “All will be tomorrow.”

 

Fan reaction: “Expectedly cool”

According to Svetlana Surganova, she tries not to read reviews about her music on the Internet, as she “gets depressed” if she sees any negative. The Orchestra’s musicians monitor the fans’ reactions. Then it is passed in dosed to the front woman of the band. However, the rockers have nothing to worry about. The new album was warmly received by fans.  Surganova’s Instagram has only positive comments.

“The album is amazing! An unprecedented case for me when I liked  EVERYTHING indeed! All compositions hit the top mark! Thanks”.

“With each track my eyes were getting  wider and wider, my jaw was rolling down the steps. And the heart is beating so loudly as if soon there will be a ritual fire. How, how .. How is it even possible that I kinda liked EVERYTHING! Indeed it was not without magic, I feel it in every note of the album.”

“My admirations for you, Svetlana! You are so versatile and talented! And the new album is a proof of that. It turned out very powerful and invigorating! And there are even traces of some hooliganism in Surganova style. Cool! Bravo to you and your entire team.”

“Expectedly cool. And yet I was not ready. I was not ready to get so hooked, the more you listen, the deeper and deeper you penetrate. So many, too many emotions, I try to endure. Goosebumps mutants attacks are especially strong during “Krovotok” (“Blood Flow”) and “Zavtra” (“Tomorrow”). Everything is cool, no exceptions. “
