Serebro Slomana Broke

Fresh from the delicious delights of “Chocolate”, our favourite Russian girl group is back with “Slomana” or “Broke”. The single sees Serebro return to the more melancholic sounds of “Otpusti Menya”, with Olga Seryabkina — the sole survivor from the band’s Eurovision 2007 line-up — gobbling up the bulk of the limelight.

Serebro’s last remaining original band member, Olga Seryabkina

As the title suggests, “Slomana” is heartbreak central. The ladies’ mournful vocals ride an unhurried EDM beat that never speeds up. They’re broken, singing of silent nights and lonely dawns. They want to repeat everything but worry it’s too late. And while there are three people in the group, Olga is undoubtedly the star. She carries the song, with Polina Favorskaya and Katya Kischuk merely acting as harmonious support. It’s not quite a Nicole Scherzinger and The Pussycat Dolls scenario, but one suspects brand Serebro would collapse should Olga ever leave.

All of the above applies to the music video. Olga is flanked by the other two, as they form a ghostly trio atop a desolate roof. Meanwhile, the song’s message is delivered through the eyes of a young couple, with their love represented by a video game style life-bar. Obstacles chip away at the relationship, causing the virtual life-hearts to eventually disappear, taking the love affair with them. Just like every Serebro video, the imagery is often weirdly abstract — we’ve got bloody noses, giant light bulbs and pink teddy bears. Although, they seem to have put a cap on the more salacious sides of their personalities. The usual writhing bodies and naughty flourishes are noticeably absent.

Would you please give me the name of the model? I’m a director and I’m so eager to have her in my upcoming short film which I’m going to shoot in Moscow, Russia.

Mhm, the only best group cast was the original one. That time they slayed with good sound and better figured personalities. Now it barely touches, personally, I don’t know what’s up with lyrics but the pop-group image is the first thing to care about…

Exactly. We had the info about Aminata’s participation and I am happy for her to pass it since The Voice Russia is a good choice.
But the show hasn’t been aired yet, it’s not shown live until televoters are enabled vote. Nobody must have known that Aminata have passed the blind auditions by now since the 1st air is expected on Friday=)) It will not be live.

@Cosima One has to pass 2 auditions in order to be selected for the show and even that does not guarantee that one will actually be invited to the show. Aminata went to auditions a couple of months ago and was lucky to pass to the next stage. Some of the participants of Season 4 were selected back in 2012 before the first edition however had not been invited to the show for 3 years because of the long queue. In the last season 13,000 people were invited to auditions, about 100 of them passed to the Blind Auditions stage.… Read more »

Aminata (Latvia 2015) passed the blind auditions in The Voice Russia. Dima Bilan and Polina Gagarina turned their chairs, she has chosen to be in Polina’s team.

I am dying for these girls to make a Eurovision return! Some of their recent songs would make great shows on the stage and could be potential winners!

@PADRAIG MULDOON Are you planning an article about New Wave Juniour 2016 edition? Sergey Lazarev, Dima Bilan, Filipp Kirkorov, Anastasia Petrik and other Eurovision stars took part in the last edition.
