Flat Fifty is the Apartment n. 50 from Bulgakov novel “The Master and Margarita”. In the novel this is the place where the devil resides while he is visiting Moscow. It’s a kind of bizarre zone where everything can happen, and many strange creatures meet… and that is also the musical meaning!
The band starts in 2014 and through usual line up changes, live activity never stopped.
Influences are so many, from pop to metal, from progressive to garage… many strange creatures meet!
Today Flat Fifty play a peculiar crossover between Franz Ferdinand, The Hives and The Kinks, garage in the roots with a muddle of influences, a formula someone labeled... UltraPoP
To get an idea of Flat Fifty's music in 2018 here is DiscoKills, Flat Fifty’s tribute to ‘70s and ‘80s. An optical and glamorous shoe on a bloody mirrorball represents the capture of pop, glamour, electronic, funky disco, transposing them – reworked and personalized – in these years of artistic decay.
This metaphor tells how Flat Fifty try to get hold of this ancient power.
