We’re coming close to four years since Pussy Riot performed ‘Punk Prayer – Mother of God, Chase Putin Away!’ on the altar of a Moscow cathedral; their ongoing defiance leading to them being arrested, gaoled and eventually freed thanks to the intervention of human rights groups and international media.

Not to be deterred in any way, the Russian feminist punk-rock collective have premiered their latest release ‘Chaika’. Named after Russia’s current Prosecutor General Yuri Chaika, who has been at the centre of quite the scandal lately after being accused of corruption and having direct ties to the Russian Mob.

In an interview with Pussy Riot’s Nadya Tolokonnikova, she explains what they hope the video, a highly stylised visual rich with symbolism, will achieve.

“Pussy Riot demands an immediate investigation into Prosecutor General Chaika and his family, as well as an investigation into all the top officials in his office. We hope that the video will help to convince people that we cannot live in a country where its top law enforcement official is the brightest symbol of corruption and murder. Pussy Riot hopes that people around the world will help us voice our outrage and turn Russia into a country where people like Chaika can no longer exist.”

The song itself wavers from their usual punk vibe, with Tolokonnikova’s words taking spotlight over unobtrusive instrumentation. The bare bones track also allows for the accompanying video to take attention; giving the viewer the opportunity to spot the use of symbolism such as the golden loaf of bread to represent the concealment of corruption, the use of the two-headed seagull (Chaika roughly translates to ‘seagull’) and the depiction of gluttony to show “the core values of the Russian governmental mafia.”

While there’s no knowing what Pussy Riot are planning to do next, for now we’re just happy they’re back.
