Skryabin (Ukrainian: Скрябін, also transliterated as Scriabin or Skriabin) is a band from western Ukraine founded in 1989. Andriy "Kuzma" Kuzmenko (Ukrainian: Андрій Кузьменко) was the band's lead singer until his death in 2015.[1]

During its existence Skryabin has gone from electronic dark wave to alternative/pop rock. Typically heritage of the band is divided into "the old Skryabin" and "the new Skryabin". The border between these two runs in 2000-2003.

One of the group's 2005 songs, Lyudy Yak Korabli (Ukrainian: Люди Як Кораблі), spent a record 39 continuous weeks (as of the end of 2007) on FDR Radiocenter's Top 40, which began tracking Ukrainian radioplay in May 2002. In February 2006 Stari Fotohrafiyi (Ukrainian: Старі Фотографії) debuted at #1 on the chart and Padai (Ukrainian: Падай) similarly entered in the top slot three months later.[2]

The group was named "Best Pop Band" in 2006 at the "ShowBiz Awards” held in Kyiv's National Opera House.[3]
