There is more than one band called "Sensor".
1.Sensor is a Russian band.
Sensor started as a group in 2005, when Dimitri Kozlov (guitar, synthesizers, back-vocal), Ilya Pavlov (vocal, keyboards) and Andrey Smayev (drums, programming) decided to try themselves on the stage. The idea was to gather the best musical trends of the last 30 years in a single musical canvas. Several old-fashioned analogue synthesizers, drums, and a PC in small premises at the car park – such was unpretentious environment in which the group started to carry out their ambitious plans.
Soon after a bass-guitarist Alexey Bogatkov had joined the group, the quarter finally decided upon its musical concept. Pulsing rhythm-section, aloof vocal, volatile guitars, up-to date computer technologies, alongside with old analogue synthesizers of the past century, – all that became the immediate constituents of the debut album. Passionate admirers of the British music, the musicians did not hesitate to choose English lyrics as wording to their music. An accidental Internet acquaintance with an American poet Charlie Mason resulted in their further successful cooperation. Ten musical compositions recorded by “Sensor” within a year, was the outcome of prolonged studio sessions held through the Internet in distant parts of the globe.
Recorded in 2008, LP 'Naked’ sold poorly and year later the band split.
In 2009 Dimitri Kozlov briefly formed The Tapeaters with vocalist/songwriter Vadim Pukhov.
