Post punk/coldwave Russian singing band Super Besse was formed in 2013 in Minsk, Belarus.
The band’s first appearance outside their homeland took place at Estonian showcase festival Tallinn Music Week in 2014 and was followed by rave feedback describing Super Besse as „stunning” and „powerful”. Their next live shows around the Baltic states soon led them to reputation of a strong live band and secured a record deal with Latvian independent label I Love You Records.
Super Besse’s debut album 63610*, released in May 2015, was presented at Europavox Festival in Clermont-Ferrand, France, including a performance at Super Besse resort from where the band’s name comes from.
Since 2014 the band has done dozens of gigs in the Baltics, Scandinavia, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland and other European countries, taking by storm audiences everywhere.
During the last year Super Besse worked on their second studio album La Nuit*, released on 13th of October 2017.
„The album is about night adventures. We tried to describe the feelings and beauty of some moments at that deepest time, surrounded by gloom with a bit of melancholy,” band members outline the mood of their new record.
All nine songs on the album are written and produced by Super Besse and mastered by Paul Gold at Salt Mastering, New York.
“The main thing about Super Besse is that it is nonsense and that we don’t follow the mainstream – we love France, we sing in Russian and play gigs in Europe with a powerful punk spirit at our shows and coldwave synth sounds in our songs. We try to mix it all,” the band’s singer, guitarist and lyricist Maksim once said in an interview.
