My pick (at least at the moment) has to be “indie folk rap”.
Agree - for this question it should have an intersection between traditional and current trends.
New stuff that I hear
then I remember that gypsy-rock provoking something inside of me
And again, Batushka blows my mind
And I cannot mention my friends. they only a bit popular in few cities, and it’s a personal choice, but frontman rent me a room, then motivate me to start my company and on his kitchen, at night we coded our first freelance job - lyrics also crazy
Batushka reminds me of Rammstein – that’s high praise coming from me! They call themselves, to translate into English, “dance metal”. You might remember “Du Hast”, but honestly that song isn’t even in my top 10.
I don’t even know German, and I’ve loved this band since I was 14 or so. Go figure.
I’ll be sure to listen to the others as well, once I can stop listening to Batushka…
my main wish for Batushka that they will be booked worldwide for next 2-5 years, because they can be easily caught in Russia for using church attributes
(and it’s like summoning devil at live show). googling it
I also think about another one band. But 50% of their custom is lyrics. and it hard to express why they are cool
