"Balaklava Blues is a musical meditation of hope against the backdrop of Ukraine's chaos...
an earnest and engaging reflection on post traumatic stress and the attempts we make to move forward."

"It’s a set of stark contradictions to spark your mind and move your feet; creators Mark and Marichka Marczyk
sing seemingly carefree melodies to poppy techno beats worthy of PC Music, as startling visuals of missiles being loaded
and machine guns being fired are projected behind them. Opposites attract in this set as jarring subtitles like, “this is not your place,
you can only stay here temporarily” are over-layed on top of colourful Soviet cartoons as techno beats build to a crescendo."
