Last Resort Maxi Single
What happens when a Russian rocker takes up with an American folk singer? You get a sexy duo called K. Discover why Rolling Stone magazine excitedly calls it a gothic-country act. Fusing hard rock riffs, dark electronica undertones, pop rhythms, and multi-layered vocal harmonies, K is a fresh, enigmatic new sound that makes a radical departure from other Euro music acts, and stands apart from the myriad of clone, grunge-like groups that dominate American commercial radio. Famed Russian rock star Alex Gorshenev of supergroup Kukryniksy teamed up in 2009 with Texas native, singer - songwriter Stephanie Starr to conceive an album that harnesses all the seething chemistry between the two musicians. Listeners who had a sneak preview of the maxi single are applauding Gorshenev's easy transition and flawless performance with Starr, who lends her sultry, airy vocals to Gorshenev's trademark dark sensuality. More than just music, Gorshenev and Starr enjoyed the politically-charged excitement of their cross-borders union; carefully working aspects of what Studio Novi Records exec Alex Shakhirev calls "the Anglo-Russo psychodance" into their lyrics. "Here you have the intense, simmering Russian man and the ethereal, melancholy, American woman creating art together. They create a palpable chemistry in the music, while representing their own national context. Artistically, it doesn't get any better than that. Dostoevsky would've been jealous.
