From Deli Magazine, “With roots ranging from Russia to Portland’s suburbs, Chervona is what happens when you blend Soviet Bloc drinking songs with American punk and throw in an accordion. Front man Andreyshka Pitersky sings his hearty droll in both Russian and English, which leads to a varied set that includes a mix of vaudevillian choruses, brass-punk versions of traditional Russian folk songs and some of the best covers on the market (their version of Boney M.’s “Ra Ra Rasputin” is particularly great). What stands out the most about the band is Chervona’s lack of reliance on flimsy kitsch. They are adamant about being seen not as another band that uses its Eastern European heritage as a gimmick. Rather, they set out to make the best possible music they know how, regardless of their background.
