Genre: Alternative / Rock
Finally this is the first entry of a Delta Machine cover version. Soothe My Soul is second single and a really cool club track. The Gift transform it into a rock version, which I really love. By the first contact they don’t want to join, because they may not „heavy“ enough. In the end I’m really happy that they choose to join DRC.
Band info: When the band was finally named „The Gift“ in 1999, we triggered a different approach on a different road. It was fortunate time for the band as we have had put an intense gigging in a place, performing unique repertoire either in Novi Sad or Belgrade: Pulp, Suede, David Bowie, Depeche Mode, Radiohead, Placebo, Blur… britt pop indeed.
In period of 2001-2005, The Gift had got an important role at National Belgrade theatre. The play we were in, was called: „Polaroids“ (Written by Mark Ravenhill). For the role the band won a special prize for „the scene design“ (actually Scene moves), by the YUSTAT Theatre organisations. It had showed a full potential of the band, reviling that it’s not only important interpretation and a good sound, but also a definition of whole performance, which regardless has brought us an energy and magic of real original artists.
Latter that phenomena we called: „I’m a collector“ (citate from David Bowie’s interview, 1977.) mentioned in our inteview. The point of this idea was to indicate a presence of original artist, in order to transcend into something which has a collective perception of our audience, actually what they would liked us to be or what we are likely to become.
Having planty gigs in many clubs of Serbia, we’re playing: David Bowie, Pulp, Suede, Joy Division, Iggy Pop, Coldplay, Placebo, Oasis, Nick Cave, Richard Ashcroft, Blur, Radiohead, the Killers, The Cure, Pixies, Muse, New Order, Depeche Mode, Peter Muphy and more. On some occasions the band is performing the tribute acts only as David Bowie or Depeche Mode tribute as the most popular in ex YU countries..
