Neverlove band: history, vocalist Yaroslav Stepanov, tracks and clips
You may have already seen YouTube video (which, by the way, is far from one), which leads to curious speculations: does SHAMAN really have a younger brother? How is it possible, given the overwhelming popularity of the artist! After all, it would seem, about his life and family - including childhood - know absolutely everything! Even Shaman's relatives talked to journalists, sharing details of what Yaroslav was in his youth... And no brother was ever mentioned.
So is it true? Or is it just a good PR move? We propose to get to the bottom of this question together, as well as to get acquainted with the Neverlove - a group that, according to critics, successfully occupied the niche that the rest of Russia was shy of occupying.
A joke that was believed
So where did it all start? On the YouTube channel. of Neverlove A short video (Shorts) appeared, which instantly grabbed the public's attention: it says that Shaman allegedly has a younger brother - also a Yaroslav (how ironic). So why doesn't anyone know about him? It's simple: the creators of the video claim that SHAMAN is embarrassed of his brother, who performs rough heavy metal, leads a rebellious lifestyle and sings songs with foul language. The video gained a huge number of views, more than 10 thousand likes and almost 1.5 thousand comments! Strangely enough, some people "took the bait" and believed the story. So, under the video you can find comments like:
"Well, it's not without a family, ....., as they say."
"And why are they both Jaroslavs?"
"Now that's a revelation... I didn't know!"
But most of the commenters figured out the creators of the video - realized that there is no brother really exists, and that it is very good and in its own way comical PR stunt. Given Shaman's popularity, it's not surprising that some are trying to hook the public using his big name. Thus, users began to "play along" with the creators of the viral video. Here are just a few comments that show that the public's humor is in good order:
"Thank you Kipelov for such beautiful sons!"
"Personally, I like Jaroslav better than his brother Jaroslav..."
"Well you finally confessed in public, I thought you were going to keep it a secret from now on..."
So who is it about? Who is this Yaroslav, who earlier pulled a similar prank - only then pretending to be his son? Valeria Kipelova? Let's get to know the YouTube hero and we...
"The linguist-translator who could."
The hero of today's article Yaroslav Stepanov. Alas, very little is known about this man - only the crumbs that he told about himself. None of his fans even knows how old he is! But if we judge by his stories, no less than 25. It is known that Yaroslav linguist-translator by education: graduated from university, taught English, but also knows German well.
Then there was a variety of jobs: Yaroslav managed to work in a call center, in a brokerage company, and tried his hand at trading... But music was his main passion.
In parallel to his work Yaroslav was engaged in the development of his own band - Neverlove. There were times he was late or took days off, but he is still grateful that his superiors respected his interests and didn't fire him.
"One of my bosses was a musician himself! That's why he tolerated it, even supported it..."
"While some are shying away, others are breaking in."
This has resulted in Neverlove having tens of thousands of fans today. The band's story begins in 2019. Social networks, in particular TikTok, gave the band's development a powerful impetus: first, one video, then the second, then the third... Over the next few years, the band released a number of albums with quite colorful titles: "Pulled," "The Lovemetal You Deserve," "Rock and Roll Will Forgive Me Anything." (and that's the best part). However, the content was no less spectacular....
Neverlove is one of the most ambiguous and bright bands on the domestic scene: it is powerful, almost explosive metal, inspired by foreign icons and notes of some madness and spontaneity. The band sings songs racyThey are the first of a number of bands that have delighted some people and shocked others. Despite such ambiguity, it should be noted that the guys sound really cool! We can't say for sure, but according to many people, they sound really cool. Måneskin cover was way cooler than the original:
Experienced critics have also been able to evaluate the young team: in the opinion of Alexei MazhayevThe band Neverlove has successfully occupied the niche that the others in Russia have been shy of occupying for many years.
