Prāta Vētra – internationally known as Brainstorm, is currently commercially the most successful Latvian pop-rock band, will perform in London on Friday 30 October 2015!
Back in 2000, Latvian band Brainstorm (in Latvian Prāta Vētra) took Eurovision by storm, achieving third place in Stockholm with My Star.
Story of BrainStorm is a story of best friends, who grow up together, went to the same school, shared the same dreams and together fulfilled them. Those guys come from a unique generation. Born in Latvia then part of giant Soviet Union they experienced the Soviet upbringing, the battle for a freedom and were part of the first generation to embrace new possibilities the freedom brought. Such experience of two radical systems has leavened their musical influences. As singer of BrainStorm Renars Kaupers admits: “The truly first influences of BrainStorm were Russian cartoons and Soviet Latvian popscene in 80-s. Regarding those cartoons – I still love those songs and listen to them at times. They have some kind of unique happiness and sadness at the same time that is hard to explain. And that is exactly how I see most of our songs. Only when we were some 14 – 15 years old we started to learn what happens on the other side of the moon.
