Great lyrics accompanying a soft sound. Talented band from Ivano-Frankivs’k. Khvylyu Trymai was founded in 1996. After unquestioned success in the festival Perlyny Sezonu-98 with their song Hey-Hi! and after a heavy rotation of their video clip for this song on Ukrainian TV channel Biz TV, the whole country began to sympathize with these cheerful guys with guitars.
Before winter 2003 the band had already recorded and nearly finished the final mix of their debut album, songs from which had already been showcased throughout different performances of the band. In addition, the band had already had two video clips for the songs Hey-Hi! (DVision) and Poletym… (V.Pryduvalov).
In February 2004 the band finally came to an agreement with the company Hunter Music, which is an exclusive representative of Sony Music in Ukraine, to release their debut album. The first album had several different work names like More (The Sea), Zyma proyishla (The Winter has passed) and others, but it was released under its first name Khvylyu Trymai (Keep the Wave).
