Sinoptik Discussed Shows Coming Up As Well As Music!

Progressive rockers SINOPTIK have an array of album's out, with all new content under way for the next album release. A lot of shows have been planned with a lot more in the works as well. The band discussed of these shows, more in the works and music coming up soon.

1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

Hello, and thank you very much for your interest in our band!

The band comes from the largest industrial center of Ukraine - Donetsk. Which is historically known as the land of hardworking people, and its also the land of the Shakhtar football team, many famous rock musicians and, unfortunately, the place of war for the last 8 years.

In 2015, we made a decision to leave our homeland, and went on an endless tour around the world. Over the years we have recorded 4 albums and 1 EP.

We played about 500 concerts in Europe, starting from the Sea of ​​Azov to across the Atlantic Ocean, shot 10 video works on our own, and now we are closely involved in charity and fundraising for internal refugees  and children from boarding schools.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

Sinoptik translates as a weather forecaster.

I needed an authentic name… now I have it! :) I try to predict some world events, but as a real weather forecaster I often make mistakes too. So we're all kind of sinoptiks in a way.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

Я могу порекомендовать Jinjer, дахабраха , Онука и Омана это то, что вот прямо сейчас на уме. 

Но выживают, тол ко те, кто объединяется и вопреки войне и всеобщему горю делают добрые дела и находят время турить и помогать друг другу. Я бы написал так. Что бы порокерски. Это хоть резонанс вызовет. 

I can recommend Jinjer, DakhaBrakha, Onuka and Omana, that’s what on my mind right now. 

Our band is originally from Donetsk, as i said before, but we relocated to Kyiv when the war started in our city almost 8 years ago. 

The music scene in Ukraine is going through a lot of painful processes right now, partially due to war, and also due to internal misunderstandings among local artists. And i’d say that only those musicians will survive, who unite right now, find time to tour and help our country, and support each other.

4. How would you describe your style?

Hard rock with elements of psychedelic and progressive rock.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

We experiment with every album. Since I have the abilities and skills to produce and record everything myself, each album is original in sound, form and content. Therefore, I’d advise you to always listen from the 1st album in turn. Usually everyone finds something of their own and favorite. This music is for all people. I wouldn't call it niche.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

Yes, we have a lot of drafts for the new album, which are divided into songs before February 24 and after. If we release the vinyl, there would be a very interesting contrast.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

We are planning a lot of concerts. We are very motivated and we do have a lot to say to the world. I'm on tour at the moment and I'm feeling some very strong energies. Which means one needs to continue. Especially when one gets great feedback from the crowd!

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

Many successful concerts around the world, which will be an integral part of charity and help to Ukrainian families of internal refugees. And then after the war ends, we will return to the global issues of humanity on this planet.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

Everywhere! Only the lazy won’t find info about us! :) Our music is sold on all platforms and we are present in all networks. We have a small team, but if someone wants to contact us, we’ll be quickly in touch.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

I would like the listener to be able to visualize what he hears, when listening to our music. Nowadays there is a lot of rock music that is listened to in the background. And people remember it as “oh, I want to work and I need this stoner band, because they don’t strain my attention while I work”. It's not about our music. Our music and lyrics require attention. Hopefully the listener will be rewarded. And visualizing the music, he or she will choose what to remember. Thanks!
