Indie namesakes comment on Boris Yeltsin death

Singer of band says he's been busy

US band Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin have spoken following the death of former Russian leader Boris Yeltsin.

The former Russian president died from heart failure on Monday (April 23), while today (April 25) has been declared a day of national mourning in Russia.

Someone Still Loves You… singer Philip Dickey said: “I feel really awkward. This is the busiest my phone and email have ever been in my life.”

He explained that the band have had the name for a while, despite it seeming like a timely attention-seeking move.

He told Radar: “We had this national release in October. I don’t blame people if they suspect that this is just us wanting attention…If we tried to change it we might come up with something worse.”
