Revontulet was formed in 2008, when the future core of the band, Alexandra Revontulet (songwriting, vocals) and Sergey Zorg (drums), found each other via the Internet. The first line-up was completed by Yury Leshchishen (guitar) and Alexey Kudryashov (bass). But after few months of rehearsing left the band due to personal reasons. During the next two years the line-up changed many times, until finally Maxim Orlov (bass) and Dmitriy Sakharchuk (guitar), who used to play with Zorg in other bands, joined Revontulet in 2010.
Revontulet played many concerts in Moscow region during 2010 and 2011 and entered the studio in June 2012 to record their debut album.
By the end of April 2013 Revontulet split ways with Maxim and Dmitriy, but continued working on the album. The violin, viola, cello, flute, choir and vocal parts, recorded at Arcus Records, were finished in July. After that the album was mixed by Alexandra and Sergey, and the final touches were applied by mastering performed by Hiili Hiilesmaa (Yellow House Studio, Finland).
After a year and a half of hard work Revontulet released their debut album “Hear Me” on the 26th of January 2014.
