Laika Virgin (EE)
A most welcome visitor from a country the music scene of which is not known very well: Estonia. The band is has a reputation of being as igniting as Red Hot Chili Peppers. Its successful campaign in the radio and television airwaves (their first video was #1 of the Estonian charts for 18 weeks) brought Laika Virgin to a specific position and the “Estonian Grammy” was quite expectable for the debut album.
Laika Virgin was originally a music studio project of accompaniment for various singers. It is now a typical rock-music quartet with a fixed lineup. They are now working on a new album which, unlike the first record that was in Estonian, will be in English. This shows nothing else than the band feels it wants to make impact beyond the borders of their home country.
