Braii is an alternative music band formed in 2017 in Kyiv, Ukraine playing in post punk and indie rock genres with fresh tones of Eastern European song tradition.
The band’s frontwoman Oksana Bryzgalova while being out of stage and studio talks about her work exclusively in the categories of destiny, not allowing any other future course of events except music.
Braii’s worldview was partially influenced by the post-punk movement, started by Joy Division and the whole Manchester wave. Cure and other leaders of alternative rock, as well as the pioneers of the experimental scene - The Velvet Underground and the American singer and poetess Patti Smith with numerous followers of their musical and poetic radicalism, such as PJ Harvey, Mazzy Star, and others also took part in musical formation of Braii.

Ep 'city of nothing'
A hard working young band has highly productive career results for a short period of time: in 2018 Braii released their debut EP “City of Nothing” on vinyl.
Crude, dense sound, low sensual voice, emotional and honest lyrics completely capture the attention of the listener. Stylistic references, citations and inspirations do not sound epigonistic, but on the contrary they make the record whole, well-adjusted, nostalgic and relevant at the same time.
““This is the quintessence of my life of the last seven years, absorbed by musical experiments, a symbiosis of my inner world and a reaction to what is happening outside””
— Oksana Bryzgalova, frontwoman of Braii band.
