The Russian indie-dance project of Mitya Burmistrov – MITYA released the EP Monument on the 12th.
Treading lightly – as though navigating bare-feet through broken glass – MITYA doesn’t attempt to be what it isn’t. The easy stepping sounds are flighty on the ears, though intriguingly derived.
Having spent some time travelling through various Turkic regions across the Russian Federation on returning to Kazan the collection of traditions and music laid upon the mind and from this travelogue – Monument (available on bandcamp) is a reinterpretation of those memories – set to distinctly 2010s’ techniques and synthetics.
Omen Over The Sky is the first of the five tracks.
In something of a full circle, when first introduced Southway were based in England, then moved to South Korea and now – their final gig in South Korea has been scheduled for the 16th of December before returning once again to England.
From their forthcoming, as yet untitled LP – Human Touch.
