Research on the band’s history

In order to get a better understanding of RATB’s background, I started reading interviews featuring Robin (lead vocalist and frontman) and other band members. In short, I found out that:

  • Arhanghel’sk is an album about leaving home and about the start of a war;
  • Robin is inspired and fascinated by reservoirs and dams because of a lake/reservoir close to his hometown;
  • Their songs and a previous video are partly inspired by the hills and woods in Harghita county, Romania;
  • Their biggest lyrical inspiration is symbolistic Romanian interwar poet George Bacovia.

I will base further research for my video on these findings.
