“Beesadaptic”: The Cyber-Grundge Band
The band’s name originates as a combination of audio and video images – a phrase overheard on a biology lesson, and episode of the “X-Files” featuring attack of genetically-engineered bees, the picture of a honeycomb on the cover of “A Taste Of Honey” album by The Beatles.
The band’s music style is called the “cyber-grundge” by the band members: a combination of cyberpunk and grunge; the letter D in the “grundge” is not a typo, it symbolizes an ironical reminiscence to the author of the term – Dizzy, the frontman of the band.
The essential features of Beesadaptic musical style are unexpected and instant mood changes and deep sound density of semi-electronic compositions, the “airy” content and 3D-images put together with detached performance manner carry the listener up to a new perception level.
The positive space energy of Beesadaptic live shows, the power of the guitar drive, the wall of white sharp-pointed sound flying almost at the light speed provoke physical excitement. Forgotten childish smiles of delight can often be noticed on the listeners’ faces as a reaction to the touch of something magic.
