Barton Fink draws influences from various musical backgrounds and puts it together in a new, crazy and electrifying way. It's members are a mixture of cool jazz cats, aggressive punks and motown soul-brothers. The songs are sometimes soulful like Gnarls Barkley, aggressive like Justice, rock like Radiohead or snap and pop like Outkast.
At the control center are the brothers - Vagan and Charly Aden. Both were born in Russia and lived there for a decade. Growing up in the midst of british and american rock (Oasis and Lenny Kravitz), hip-hop (Big Punisher) and electronic music (Prodigy), the Aden brothers were making music from a very early age. Vagan (age 14) and Charly (age 10) had a gangster rap duo called The Aden Brothus.
Barton Fink was formed with a mission to destroy musical cliches and create something new and outrageous. The live shows are cathartic and intimidating. It's not a night to bring your first date to. It's in your face and the boys never play it safe by being loud, mean and most of all - very imaginitive and groovy.
The first album "Gear" was recorded at the Troublemakers studio with Cristobal Tapia de Veer in the control room (Beast, Plaster, One Ton...). The album features a remix of one of the songs by Marc Bell with Malicious rapping on one verse. It is now being hyped and promoted for March 2011.
Here I come and I'm shaking
Since I'm in all of this mess I've been making
For a moment, I thought I had it
But then I lost it and she let me have it
I've been asked about a million times and
I dont know it, I cant show it to you people
Since I'm crippled too
Girls take me home
When I'm feelin low
Boys never show
What they really know
And love oh no no...
It only goes to show
That I dont really know ooooh, nothing.
Stop me, look at me, I'm free
Be like me, be like me, don't be like me - you'll never be free
She had a bad day, hmmm, a bad day
But I wont follow you down, so I'm getting out!
*speaking in tounges*
Why cant I forget
The things that we said
The things that we said, they fuck with my head
If I never see
You ever again
It will be soon enough
