Cheese People - Cheese People

genre - disco, electronic, punk
release date - 2009

The Cheese People are a female-fronted four-piece based in the city of Samara (small by Russian standards) on the banks of the Volga. They first started to jam in 2003, and after a few years of playing in local basements they found themselves in the position of Russia's most powerful and popular disco punk band. Their debut self-titled CD is a no-budget and self-produced recording, which however manages to sound more powerful and groovy than most Russian mainstream major-label pop. Due to its winning combination of catchy melodies, absurd lyrics, intricate sample work and unusual meowing vocal lines, this band can become an international breakthrough for Russian music.
Some music critics have already compared the Cheese People music with Cansei de Ser Sexy, Datarock or New Young Pony Club. However, the band themselves say that they are more influenced by the likes of Prodigy and Gloria Gaynor, as it was hard to keep abreast of the modern music in Samara using slow dial-up connection.
