Progress in the dense forest. BI-2 feat John Grant — Whiskey.
welcome you! Today we will delve into an interesting joint work of the group B-2 and John Grant.
From the very beginning of the work, the impression of cold and tension is created, which are amplified by screams from the depths.
Then Shura Bi-2 begins to sing in a constrained tone : “My God is harsh, my fate is difficult, and my prison is my hut. But even in my dense forest, progress came along a crooked path.” this tells Me about the inner strength and resistance to the “cold and wet forest” of relations in rural Russia, since many simply worked hard to survive, without the ability to just live.
The chorus of the song, which Leva and Shura sing together, already tells us about this: “Let me go cool, my soul is asking for a miracle now. What in Irkutsk, what in Norilsk what Russian does not drink whiskey.” And in the last sentence there is a statement and irony that the soul is waiting for a miracle and in those conditions, only whiskey can bring it. That is a sweet escape from reality.
The following verse is also quite interesting: “The face is angry and the temper is rude, love keeps a triple sheepskin coat. But the snow melts and tears fur accordion company Yamaha.” This tells me the following: a person is so cold from what is happening, but he keeps his love and humanity from the “cold” in a triple sheepskin coat and literally an even greater miracle than whiskey for him is an “overseas” musical instrument that literally wakes up the inner child and his love “tears the armor” and warms everything around.
Well, the result of the song is that everyone needs a miracle, but, unfortunately, for many it is only available through whiskey. By and large, as Chekhov wrote about it : “…We don’t know what we have. The population eats only wild cherry. No meat or fish… They searched the village all evening to see if anyone would sell the chicken, but they didn’t find it… But there is vodka!” Perhaps this is a consequence of the fact that souls are tired of the monotony of survival in the real world and want to get a miracle in the world of illusions.
