Intelligency – August

The story of one "summer evening song about young madness" that took 22nd place on the Shazam!

Intelligency: about the group, and the main hit August (22nd line of the world Shazam chart)!

Not so long ago, the Belarusian group Intelligency, which is actively gaining popularity, presented the English version of their hit "August"! A month ago, the team posted a video for the Russian-language version online, which has already gained more than five million views! The track is one of the most popular to date on TikTok. Also, the Russian "August" took the 22nd place in the world Shazam chart, which was a big breakthrough for the little-known group!

A little about the band: Intelligency - who are they?

These guys are among those lucky ones that literally no one heard of yesterday, and today their tracks settle in the playlists of millions of listeners far beyond the borders of their homeland ...

Intelligency released their first digital album “Feel the …” in 2014! True, they had to wait a very long time for popular love and recognition ...

The group gained popularity due to its unique sound style... As the leader of Intelligency admitted, the musical idol of the guys has always been and will be Vladimir Mulyavin, a Soviet and Belarusian musician, head of the legendary Pesnyary ensemble.

Gradually, the guys began to be invited to interviews and small local performances in clubs. However, outdoor performances became the basis for their own army of fans! Starting as street musicians, Intelligency attracted more and more attention from Minsk residents. Little by little, the audience in the musicians' social networks grew, and now the whole republic has learned about them!

During this period, the group recorded the second album "DoLoven", which brought them to a new level of sound.

As a result, as it usually happens in musical circles, only one song changed everything ... The rhythmic composition "August" managed to "shoot" and glorify the guys not only throughout the network, but also far beyond the borders of their homeland!

 The history of the hit is fabulously simple: Intelligency released this track back in the middle of last year. YouTube, TikTok - in a word, the Chinese social network has spread it at the speed of sound around the world!

As a result, “August” entered the top 10 of the world Shazam chart, and Warner Music Russia signed a cherished (for the second half) contract with Intelligency! Here is such a happy ending.

And now about the new clip August!

Actually, this video was the first fruit of their fruitful collaboration!

As for the song itself, it was released as part of the third studio album "RENOVATIO". As you might guess, "August" became the lead track of the disc!

It would be a mistake to say that the musicians became popular only in the CIS: in the world top, the track successfully reached the mark of 50, which in itself is already an excellent result for a relatively little-known Russian-speaking band!

Despite the fact that many see the extremely negative mood of the hero in the text of "August", the guys from Intelligency themselves position their creation as "a composition of a summer evening about young madness."

One way or another, this track definitely deserves attention! Its light rhythmic sound really evokes thoughts of a summer evening, which is already pleasant in itself!

Curious fact:

At the beginning of their career, Intelligency often "abused" the English language when writing their songs, which is why they constantly received a negative assessment of critics ... Once the musicians decided to explain themselves, saying that they saw no reason to tie art to any certain language. Many of them supported this!

Why all this? It is quite possible that when listening to "August" for the first time, it will be difficult for you to understand that the composition is sung in Russian!
