The first song Angelina Moysov wrote is about a little girl standing at a window watching the moon cry tears of blood. The moon is saddened by the way humans treat one another. Moysov was 13 when she penned the song, living in her hometown of Pyatigorsk, Russia, under a perpetually pale sky.
The porcelain-skinned Russkyâs prose continued to blossom from there. When accomplished guitarist Tom Ayres got a taste â shortly after Moysov moved to the States â Persephoneâs Bees took flight.
Trying to confine the Oakland-based quartet to a specific genre is a lost cause. Persephoneâs is more like an elephant-sized beehive stuffed with Russ Meyersâ Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, John Lennon and Yoko Onoâs Double Fantasy, the poetry of Osip Mandelstam (âPersephoneâs Beesâ is a phrase from one of his works) and most importantly, life experience.
Moysov finds muses in everything she experiences and at some point, it overflows into her songwriting.
âI can never force myself to write a song,â Moysov says. âI need inspiration; I have to read, watch my favorite movies, look at art and the people around me. When someone asks me what kind of music we play I always say, âItâs everything,â or âItâs music.ââ
One book that inspired a new song was The Master and Margarita (also the title of the song and Mick Jaggerâs inspiration for âSympathy for the Devilâ) by Russian writer Mikhail Bulgakov.
Persephoneâs released their first album City of Love in 2002, but the world took notice in 2005 after they signed to Columbia Records and released their second album, Notes from the Underworld. Some of the songs from the album have been featured in commercials, video games and even on The Sopranos.
âHome,â the tune featured on the Jersey mobster series, is the last song on the L.P. and a perfect match for a series about misunderstood criminals. Ayresâ guitar begins with a placid wah, like soft footsteps in a forest, before it builds into the bat-out-of-hell chorus: âWhen I left you, when I left him, when I left her, I left myself.â
Moysovâs explanation of the songâs lyrics: âItâs hard leaving the people you love, but itâs very liberating â like a little leaf that fell from a tree. Youâre all alone.â
The first song on the album, âWay to your Heart,â is a mesh of gypsy-prog-psychedelia thatâs like a conversation between Ayres and Moysov. Ayres brings crunchily distorted Thin Lizzy riffs, and Moysov answers with playful jabs on the keys and taunting vocals. âIn the morning when I wake up, I think about how I can get you tonight.â
âWay to Your Heartâ is proof that Moysov and Ayres are both strong forces â and without one, the group just wouldnât work.
Persephoneâs Bees continues to prevail even after leaving Columbia Records: Its third, yet-to-be titled album was recently completed. Without the lavish, big studio production, Ayres and Moysov were tasked with the intricate process, but Moysov says she cannot be happier with the outcome.
â[The album] is a lot more philosophical,â she says. âItâs more of the way I see Persephoneâs Bees in my mind.â
