The Hostel follows the idea of 60's psychodelic music, NY downtown avantguard music, industrial music and different ethnic traditions. Texts are written in a visionary and surrealistic style. Sometimes they look like an ancient poem, sometimes like a symbolistic poetry.
Well, The Hostel is surely a peace of postmodernity.
However, as a russian group (The Hostel lives in Moscow), The Hostel consider the disunity, the fragmentation of everything in the art and in the world at all as a big tradegy and perfoms some kind of a rush to the Whole, to the integrity, to the deepest roots of being. You see that philosophy is their cup of tea..
The Hostel was founded in 2004 in a russian city Oryol despite the fact of Moscow's their native city. Nowadays the group is quite famous in Russia and considered as a distinguishing musical phenomena by the most influencial journalists.
