Must Watch: This very strange Russian song is fast becoming the anthem for 2018

Dubbed the "Russian Die Antwoord", this strange song by Little Big is fast becoming the anthem of 2018.

Dubbed the “Russian Die Antwoord”, this strange song by “Little Big” is fast becoming the anthem of 2018.


Little Big is a Russian rave band, founded in 2013 in St. Petersburg. The set includes Ilya Ilich Prusikin, Sergey Gokk Makarov, Sonya Tayurskaya, and Anton Boo Lissov. The first full-length album, “With Russia From Love” was released on 17 March 2014 but it wasn’t until October 2018 when the world took notice of this strange Russian group.

The team calls itself a satirical art collaboration, which relies on the music, visuals, and on the show.

The Little Big beats, mocks in each of its track and clip on various national stereotypes about Russia. All the videos are filmed by co-founder of the band Alina Pasok and the band shoots and produces all of their own music videos.

Due to the fact that the first concert took place at the opening act for Die Antwoord, the band was immediately dubbed “The Russian Die Antwoord”, and is often compared with this band. Vice also called Little Big “a Russian mental patient’s answer to Die Antwoord.”

Other critics point out that while Little Big has an identity of its own, it also exposes the listener to Russian folk songs and Russian culture.

Little Big achieved viral success upon the release of the video for “Skibidi” on October 5, 2018. The video features a dance that became popular when others tried to imitate it as part of the “Skibidi Challenge”.

The video has already garnished 49 million views, and doesn’t seem to be slowing down.
