Created in 2010 in Lausanne, Switzerland, Maïak is composed of four musicians influenced by wide dynamics of post-rock soundscapes and fearless to experiment sudden shifts of atmospheres.
The group was named after Maïak, a nuclear plant in the Soviet Union, where one of the worst nuclear disasters of all times took place and despite its dramatic consequences, stayed hidden for decades.
Filled with the symbolic weight of a catastrophe that arose as the punishment of man’s guilty arrogance in an outburst remained silent, Maïak delivers a dark and powerful instrumental rock that evolves between tenuous melancholy and chaotic blast.
