Russian darkwave community unites to raise money for the International Red Cross

The ‘Russian Dark Community‘ on Facebook has united to raise money for the International Red Cross. Note that the word ‘International’ is a very important detail in this charity. On the compilation you will find 77 bands, half of them signed to Insane Records and ScentAir Records.

The charity itself has been set up as a politics-free initiative, again a very important detail, as tensions are increasingly augmenting worldwide. The ScentAir Records founder said this a few weeks ago, which explains things a bit better: “I have always said and will continue to say that music and politics are not compatible.”

All money donated will go to the International Red Cross.

A very daring project in the current time where words are as dangerous as actions. Let’s hope that in the not so far away future we can all work together again for a positive future.



Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.

The donations are safely powered by Paypal.
