Gravitsapa is a Ukrainian band formed in 2005. The band recorded two mini-albums: Radio Free Albemuth in 2009, which was released in 2013 by HYSM? label under the name Free Radio Taxipod, and Vulgata also released by labels HYSM? and Skrot Up in 2013.
Listeners and critics praised Gravitsapa as the pioneers of the Ukrainian math-rock stage perfoming among the most brightful experimental sounds.
The band has taken its namе after the Soviet cult film “Kin-Dza-Dza!” depicting post-apocalyptic anti-Utopia. The major theme of Gravitsapa’s work can be described in three words: mysticism, sci-fi and absurdness.
Loyalty to a one style is not an attitude to music for Gravitsapa. “A one successful experiment performed in a track to be not repeated in the other” seems to be the band’s motto. Only eternal escape from the cliché, emission of otherworldly atmosphere and attempts to create music as a tool to enter a trance.
Currently the band is heading toward neo-neo-shamanism and Shostakovich-rock.
