We’re delighted to be bringing back Pinkshinyultrablast – one of the highlights of this year’s Sounds From The Other City!
Hot on the heels of their acclaimed album Everything Else Matters, Pinkshinyultrablast, a five-piece band from Saint Petersburg in Russia, are set to release a new single Kiddy Pool Dreams on 2 October via Club AC30.
The band take their name from an Astrobrite album, an act who were, according to the band, instrumental in how they ‘researched spaces between ambient, heavy guitar and pop music’. The spaces are what stand out: the production creates a dream-like affair, while space to breathe and reflect on the beauty of the music is accommodated. There is sparseness to the album that in turn gives spaciousness, even expansiveness.
Kiddie Pool Dreams is indicative of a forthcoming album full of even more melodic gems and shimmering shoegaze – euphoric with spectral guitars, its sharp edged pop has a radiant charm.
Pinkshinyultrablast are Igor (bass), Lyubov (vocals), Sergey (drums), Rustam (synths and electronics) and Roman (guitars).
‘A quiet riot of ethereal vocals and lustrous guitars. Pinkshinyultrablast a valid insight into young modern Russia via the early-90s Thames Valley’ – the Guardian
Tour support comes from Fever Dream. Feted for the urgency and unrest of their live presence, the London three-piece have now committed their dark and brittle post-punk-shoegaze noise to tape in the form of debut album, Moyamoya. Comprised of guitarist/vocalist Adey Fleet, bassist Sarah Lippett, and drummer Cat Loye, Fever Dream make music which stalks the unsettled territory between My Bloody Valentine and PiL; suffused with melody and discordance, unhinged and brutally stapled-down.
Opening the show are Sheffield electronic collective Blossomer.
