Yakutsk is one of the coldest cities on Earth. It’s producing some of Russia’s hottest punk rock

Very interesting article. I never knew there was such a big punk scene in Yakutia! haha

Makes sense though. As the article mentions, the great isolation for them up there, in Far North, to the point that some, who never been outside their region, see the rest of Russia as a foreign country; the struggles with their own distinct identity, as an ethnic minority; coupled with healthy alcohol consumption lol It all comes together to produced that kind of music ;)
