Wind Along The Coast – ‘Don’t Look Back / Another Life’

wind-along-the-coat-don't-look-back

Wind Along The Coast return with ‘Don’t Look Back / Another Life’; two progressive rockers with a catchy twee edge (download here). ‘Don’t Look Back’ is an upbeat noise popper whereas the b-side is a woozy epic, running almost eight minutes. The Russian trio has a handful of EPs under their belt, and since forming in 2013 have played shows alongside their native shoegazers Aerofall.

Life On Venus – ‘Distant Lights’

life-on-venus-distant-lights

The ultra-talented Life On Venus have crafted a brilliant two track demo called ‘Distant Lights’ featuring ‘Kingdom Of The Day’ and ‘There Will Be Blood’. The four piece tracked it at Moscow University and it sounds amazing. Russia continues to dish up superb dream pop – it must be the weather!

Pinkshinyultrablast – ‘Grandfeathered’

pinkshinyultrablast-grandfeathered

‘Grandfeathered’, the latest album from Pinkshinyultrablast is now officially in our hands (thanks to Club AC30). The Russian quintet follow up ‘Everything Else Matters’ with a pummeling collection of densely layered dream pop, wall of sound shoegaze and post rock crescendos. The ethereal onslaught pushes to the brink! The ambitious compositions are full of right angles and unexpected break-downs that keep it from getting bogged down in its own mass. ‘Grandfeathered’ delivers the same fanfare that made Pinkshiny’s debut so memorable, only this time round it’s a harder and heavier beast!

Saint-Petersburg’s Pinkshinyultrablast give us their latest LP ‘Grandfeathered’ on February 26 via Club AC30! It’s a swift follow-up to last year’s stellar debut album, and may even top that effort. I’ve just had a first listen to the record and it’s full of massive tunes; epic, bold and very LOUD. You may have heard Pinkshiny’s single ‘The Cherry Pit’ before… but now you can see it…

Pinkshinyultrablast – ‘The Cherry Pit’

pinkshinyultrablast-the cherry pit

Pinkshinyultrablast deliver their epic new single ‘The Cherry Pit’ which contrasts crushing walls of sound with ethereal dream pop. The Russian quintet are sounding as epic and explosive as ever. The ‘Cherry Pit’ follows the lead single ‘Kiddy Pool Dreams’, both taken from their sophomore album ‘Grandfeathered’ (out via Club AC30 on February 26). The new album is expected to be far more diverse and experimental than their debut. Singer Lyubov noted that “hardcore, metal and afrobeat” were influences. I’m not sure what’s around the corner for the Pinkshiny’s but I imagine it’ll be an exciting record either way.

Pinkshinyultrablast – ‘Kiddy Pool Dreams’

We knew it was coming but had no idea it would sound like this! Pinkshinyultrablast have posted their latest single ‘Kiddy Pool Dreams’ (available October 2 via Club AC30). The Saint-Petersburg five piece have come out swinging with a unique combination of dream pop and math rock, frenetic and totally unpredictable. Lyubov’s dreamy vocals take centre stage before being blasted into the background by angular guitars and an ambitious arrangement that spans six minutes. Pinkshinyultrablast aren’t afraid to shoot for the stars, and that’s why we love ’em! It’ll be interesting to see how this intensity plays out over their next full length. Pick up the frosted vinyl here.
