"For us, music is no longer a means to reach popularity and be successful. For us, music is a therapy, a painkiller, a morphine fix.
Perhaps, it’s the most honest way – being free of any business, any subculture or music scene, any expectations or any people.
Simply do what you should do and observe the results.
Of course, it may sound like some kind of doublethinking, but still…
We don’t consider ourselves creators. We are just transmitters translating signals coming from the universe that we invented through our songs. We are just an instrument." - The Grus

Lyrics — Traditional
Music — Traditional / The Grus
The Grus is an experimental/downtempo band from a remote Russian village with the population of 30 people. It seems rather hard to pinpoint the sound of the band due to a large number of influences it incorporates, like early gospel/blues singers, the 70's west Berlin music, modern trip-hop and experimental electronic music.
