“Art can not evolve without the symbiosis of ideas. On our endless path to the perfect sound we intersect the best species of a musical world.”
This is the philosophy of Sasha Bartashevich and Anatoly Ylotana, otherwise known as Sex Of Insects. Formed in May 2016 at the core of their music lies a complete improvisation of guitar sounds and vocals mixed with some vibrant electronic grooves.
We caught up with the duo for a quick Q&A, ahead of their performance at The Steelyard- sharing the stage with Rone, Parra For Cuva, Nhoah, CHVRN and Ofdream.
