Asrai's roots lay in the 1980's. Several of its members played
in various punk and new-wave bands. At that time their music
already had a melancholic dark side. Asrai was formed in 1988

tape","So clear that you couldn't tell where the water ended
and the air began", "Love is a Lie","Live in a package"). Finally
