I Soviets were born in 2008 on the Adriatic coast of Pesaro and are formed by Andrea Giometti (vocals and bass), Alessandro Costantini (guitar) and Alessandro Ferri (drums). They began to gain notoriety in 2009 with a handful of self-produced singles and a lengthy tour, which led to the release of the works "Summer, Jesus" e "Nice" (so far only released in digital version) and then the first studio album "Fairiesreleased on 11 November 2013 on the American label Felte.

Post-punk could be an easy adjective to attribute to the genre of the SovietsBut the band also tries to channel itself into horizons such as coldwave and art-punk, escaping the strictest definitions to create a sound that is both fresh and sophisticated.
