"Pinknruby, a duo comprising Slovenian Mihaela Repina and Brit Paul Bradbury, began working together in
1998, intending to write dance music with strong melodies. The ensuing garage, drum´n´bass
and chill-out tracks generated some interest. Early in 2002, Pinknruby decided to try something entirely
different. Carrying folk guitar backgrounds, Repina and Bradbury opted to return to simple acoustic
melodies. Their preceding tenure in dance music, however, led to acoustic songs with a dance approach,
which led to the use of loops, etc. Their music, warm, acoustic, and performed using guitars and vocals by
both members, combines folk with elements from the Mediterranean and eastern Europe. The duo released its
debut album, "Vast Astonishment" in October, 2003, on the French label Prikosnovenie. A second album,
´Garden´, followed in 2005. Last summer, the act performed 25 shows in the UK, including at the
Glastonbury Festival and London¢s Big Green Gathering. When performing, the musical pair likes to
dress colorfully in accordance with the occassion, which adds to the appeal of their shows.
Pinknruby´s lyrics, in Slovenian, usually present short stories or philosophical comments."
