About

Our Story

Hello! We are The Crack! A Ukraine-based international music band playing positive music for over a decade.

We present you one of our most lyrical compositions «Like Summer You Do», which was recorded in our home studio.

We need your support in order to record this composition at a professional level, release it on CD, as well as make a very bright, very summery and very colourful music video. This video will talk about summer, about the joy of creativity, about how important it is to fill every moment with bright colours. And about the fact that everyone is able to paint the world with the power of their imagination.

We live in Ukraine, our country is going through difficult times, but we believe that creativity and inspiration should not depend on external circumstances.

No social problems, no politics, just music and summer!

With this project we want to make an impression of all the colours of summer to everyone in the whole world.

This is a non-commercial project, audio and video will be freely accessible.

The single will be released on CD with a unique design and a  full detailed  booklet with pics.

To endorse this project we need 2 months after collecting the necessary funding.

We need £3000 to complete our project

We will  spend these funds as follows:

£500 – recording, mixing, mastering the single

£500 – cover and booklet design, printing discs and making exclusive t-shirts

£500 – Sending rewards to our donators

£1500 – Shooting, editing, directing and design of the video (including props)

About the Band

The CRACK have been playing positive rock since 2003.

 The Peculiarity of the band  began using operatic-inspiration  in vocal  styles with a twist in rock arrangements. The band has two fields of activity:

- Creation of  cover versions of classic rock artists: The Who, Paul McCartney, Bryan Ferry, Sparks, T-Rex, Queen, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Frederick Chopin, Sex Pistols and others. The band chooses to play “lesser known” compositions that are often much more interesting than those that are being played time and again by most  cover bands.

- Writing our own songs: The band has a recognizably cheerful sound and a very unusual, light and jolly style that they decided  to portray as   "Crack Rock".

Recordings:

A demo CD with 4 cover songs (2003)

2004 A presentation disk of own compositions (2003 )

Our cover on Sex Pistols "Anarchy in Ukraine" and "Liar" were published in the tribute « Nevermind the  Bollocks here is Sex Pistols»

One song was published on the album «Females on fire»

Various compositions of the band have been on many occasions  published in  collections of various festivals in Ukraine.
