Hailing from Barnaul in Siberia, Thorn1 is Evgeny Zheyda. Source recordings of acoustic guitars are manipulated into epic walls & pencil taps on a desk become amazing drums, all recorded on a handheld voice recorder instead of with microphones, a trick learned in youth when no better equipment was available. The music mixes lo-fi-pop & post rock & dub for his own take on drone pop. While post rock & experimental hip hop & folk scenes are healthy in the Russian music underground, blending them together puts Thorn1 in both its own unique category & a no man’s land without other bands to play shows with nor a musical scene with the same aesthetic within a thousand miles.
Music, lyrics, vocals, performing, design, mixing and all stuff by Evgeny Zheyda.
