Singleton is a group out of the Ukraine that has just released its second CD Uncovered. Recorded in Kiev, Ukraine, it was mixed in London by Barny Barnicott (Kasabian, Arctic Monkeys, etc.) and mastered in New York by Greg Calbi (Bruce Springsteen, Norah Jones, etc.) In 2009 the group released its debut EP Storms, they followed that up with the release of their first album in 2010 The High Seas. Alina, from the group, was kind enough to do an interview via email about the group.
Front Range Scribbles (FRS): Who are the members of the band and how did the band form?
Alina (A): There are 5 musicians in the band: me on vocals, Jim and Nikita on guitars, Dima on bass and Vitalik on drums.
The band was formed in the end of 2004 in Kiev, Ukraine.
We were just the guys who loved the same music and wanted to play together and write cool songs.
FRS: How would you describe your music?
A: It is guitar-laden, rock music influenced by mostly British rock heroes from 60s to 2010s.
FRS: You have released two albums, has your music evolved from the first album to the second?
A: Yes, sure. We became more mature, harder, more solid.
FRS: What have you learned from the first album to the second album?
A: We started to pay more attention to the smaller details on the arrangements, sound, recording process, actually
everything. As we felt that these minor issues can really make songs sound better.
Also, on the second album we were working with a famous british producer and when you work with such people
you need to work really hard to deliver the professional material for the producer to work with.
FRS: What do you hope the listener take away from your music?
A: I believe everyone will find something for himself in our music. An answer to a question, a guide to action or will just feel the
atmosphere of the big city with neon lights and lots of happy and unhappy people trying to find their way.
FRS: What is up next for the group?
A: Currently we are working on the new material and on our second album “Uncovered” promo.
So now we are open to everything great that can happen to us! 🙂
