"Summer of Haze" is named after a US porn actress born in the early '70s. Desire and lust are, from the outset, standing face to face. Happiness has a difficult time freeing itself from decadence, dark criminality, and other indicators of "slippage." After all, the actress in question scribes a sad trajectory with her own career, having long since become a professional wrestler.
This solo artist likes to hide his face from the public with a Tambov "bandit's" bandanna. A similarly confrontational stance is taken towards modern society, albeit with a dash of irony. In a recent video interview, Summer of Haze explained his fondness for the "weed-wave" scene in Tambov and beyond - as a way of escaping modernity's failings. He speaks of a related "shame" at popular music in Russia, since anything resembling decent aesthetic standards has been sacrificed to cash. Beauty has been crudely debased by both avarice and fiscal "ugliness."
