Ukrainian songs?

Hey! I was hoping to find a Ukrainian band that would suit my taste. Can anyone help? I like t.a.t.u, Mor ve otesi, Lena Katina, Evanescence, Ravenscry, Red, U2 - basically sort of alternative, I guess. Can anyone suggest anything?

I also like Evanescence and U2.

Here is my shortlist of Ukrainian band and some their best songs:

Плач Єремії - "Вона", "Коли до губ твоїх", "Я піду в далекі гори"

Друга ріка - "Три хвилини", "Так мало тут тебе", "Скажи"

Тартак - "Понад Хмарами (feat Катя Chilly)", "Інді я", "Я не знаю"

Lama - "З джерела", "Мені так треба", "Пробач", "Тримай"

Океан Ельзи - "Я так хочу", "Відпусти", "Зелені очі", "Кішка", "Сьогодні"


I didn't seem to prefer тартак. Hmmm. I'll listen t the playlist, though. Thanks!


And if you like some electronic music, I can suggest " Онука" https://vk.com/onuka https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9nQL7SKvKhE

By the way there are few really funny audio books from Kuzma Skryabin "Я, побєда і Берлін", "Я, паштєт і армія"


I shall get to it! Thanks! :)

Il est bien. Merci! (My French is terrible. I'm not quite sure if you say "Il est bien" to convey that you like something or that you think it is good. if you could help me in that matter (too) that would be wonderful :D



Lena Katina

Well, t.at.u had disbanded and I prefer Lena Katina over Julia Volkova - now. I used to like Julia.... but.... um, not now
