"SANTA BABY", A NEW FREE SONG AND VIDEO
Enjoy! This song came about very spontaneously: Tom and I were in the studio playing around, we were playing Kinks' Tired Of Waiting and were doing it instrumentally, more upbeat and faster and suddenly I started singing Santa Baby against it, next thing we knew we had a recording of it and here it is. Turn it up loud and dance to it all the way to Christmas and beyond!
The video was made in NYC, Paul and myself went to all these fancy shops and while pretending to shop we were filming, it felt like we were two little kids stealing candy! It was exciting!

NEW VIDEO & FREE DOWNLOAD FOR "FIRST WE TAKE MANHATTAN" ONLINE NOW!
Kids, so here it is. This was recorded in some hotel a few days ago in the middle of nowhere while we're touring through America. Inspired by a political early morning coffee conversation and suddenly strongly identifying with Leonard Cohen's poetry. While mixing the song and listening to it a bunch the idea of the video came to my head, a simple video utilizing everything we had right there and then: hotel room, beds, flash light, door way, making Persephone's Bees flag out of a piece of paper and drum sticks. This was very spontaneous, unexpected (the song and the video) but done with love and care and the desire to fight the evil even more now than ever! Click here to watch the video and download the song.
Enjoy and spread the love! Angelina

"Angelina Moysov has a delivery that demands attention... Well crafted rock shaken with a cutting pop edge and played by experience, not dress up." – SF Examiner - click to read more.
"Sultry gypsies with a pinch of punk" – Frank Moore
"Trying to confine [Persephone's Bees] to a specific genre is a lost cause. They are more like an elephant-sized beehive stuffed with Russ Meyers’ Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s Double Fantasy, the poetry of Osip Mandelstam, and most importantly, life experience." – Adam Joseph - The Monterey County Weekly

PERSEPHONE'S BEES TWIST ONE UP WITH SHOWTIME'S ACCLAIMED SERIES - "WEEDS"
Fans of the Showtime series "Weeds" know that a different musician records the theme song, "Little Boxes" by Malvina Reynolds, for every episode. Persephone's Bees add their own twist to the song on Season 3 Episode 12 - entitled "The Dark Time."
Listen to the P's Bees version of the theme here.
"P's Bees music ... is not only great, it's instantly likable."
– THE ONION
"P's Bees music - spit-shined, danceable Euro-pop reminiscent of a funkier Cardigans or a straighter Komeda - is not only great, it's instantly likable. Thanks to the obvious chemistry between sexy Russian singer/keyboardist Angelina Moysov and virtuoso guitar player Tom Ayres, more over, so are the live shows." writes the Onion.
