It started with me visiting home, then my father dying, then me just wanting to stay and see ALL family and friends, kind of realizing that we humans never have much time for very close people, we always find something more important to do. So, I decided to change that. Some new songs are now written in Russian, and below a photo of a house concert for friends at my mom's place. I shall return and soon!:) - Angelina

RELIX MAGAZINE WRITE UP ON P'S BEES
ON NEWSTANDS NOW.
The April/May 2012 issue of Relix magazine has a live concert write up on Persephone's Bees:
"As soon as Russian beauty Angelina Moysov appeared, she had the crowd under her Eurasian spell... 'City of Love' had everybody on their feet dancing like maniacs ... and Ayres' exhilarating guitar riffing could have been plucked from the Mahavishnu Orchestra.
There isn't one genre that can sum this group up. The 90-minute set, mostly made up of tunes from Notes From The Underwold and their forthcominng album New In Berlin, seamlessly glowed from glam to punk to nuevo disco to crunchy, psychedelic rock"
The EP is a limited edition and contains 5 songs. The first 4 songs (Sex, New In Berlin, East / West, and I Like You) are from the forthcoming "New In Berlin" album. The closing track, "At Your Door" is a previously unreleased song recorded for "Notes From The Underworld".
Proceeds from the sales of this EP and our digital singles will fund our self-released vinyl version of "New In Berlin".
