Интервью музыкальному порталу Breathingthecore

On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Folk/Goth Metal artist, Vesssna, from Russia. Check out the interview and follow the band on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

Where did you get the idea for the band name you planned it or came out just like that?

The word «Vesna» (Весна) means «Spring» in Russian. I just visually like the way this word looks like with three S’s. This is my nickname, although, in Russia, it is not so rare among gothic girls. This is mainly my solo project, and I wanted its name to be associated with me. And, even though we sometimes play not very joyful music, its energy is still bright. And this name also has a lot of light and sun.

Why did you want to play this genre?

Because Gothic music assumes beautiful melodies, many instruments, and contains elements of classical music. And I started writing dark and rather tragic texts from childhood, although I didn’t know about such a concept as «Gothic» at that time.

«Почти Святая»

Наш очередной «долгострой» благополучно завершен!
С момента первого съёмочного дня прошло уже больше года, было много факторов, мешающих нам, но наконец-то работа над видео сделана!
Больше года — с момента первого дня съёмок, и ровно 10 лет с момента создания самой идеи песни. От мелодии припева и общего смыслового образа до написания всей музыки и текста, до студийной записи и альбома с одноименным названием, а потом и до создания профессионального видео.
Счастье — это видеть результат своих трудов.
