It's an interview with Andriy and Nicholas from Winnipeg’s premier Eastern European folk-punk-fusion outfit, Zrada!
We talked about the band’s long history, roots in the city’s Ukrainian community, blending traditional themes with heavier western sounds, and more!
We also discussed the impact on the pandemic and the light at the end of the tunnel with a show finally on the horizon.

Arising like a phoenix (or whatever stupid analogy you want to use) from the ashes of Greek Riots comes [Screaming at Traffic](https://www.facebook.com/pg/screamingattrafficmusic), a punk band with a unique take on the style. We sat down (outside, in Wolseley) with Paul (bass) and Duncan (one of S.A.T.'s two frontmen/guitarists) to talk about their [new EP](https://screamingattrafficmusic.bandcamp.com/album/s-a-t), their place in the Winnipeg music scene, and a whole bunch of crazy tangents.
