The members of IWKC continue to produce what the Russian press terms "thoughtful, instrumental rock" that takes its inspiration from realms more abiding than any fleeting human effort. In short, nature itself becomes a vital influence here, offering patterns of endurance - come what may. "The dynamism of IWKC's compositions passes through all stages of natural growth. They move from some shivering expectation of warmth to the swelling of buds, the wavering flourish of tender blooms, and even the weight of ripening fruit." The worlds of botany and biology offer a symbolism of harmony and diligence, which - against the backdrop of IWKC's ailing Moscow suburbs - must seem impressive indeed.
For those who live among the smokestacks of abandoned factories on a capital's outskirts, there's nothing funny about such heady romance.
