Continuing to develop their profile in the Russian rock scene, regularly supporting international touring bands as well as headlining their own tour schedule, Mirrorland can’t help but raise their profile more broadly internationally.

Winter Kingdom, from the forthcoming album, serves a decent representation of their music as an introduction with its powerful melodies and highly impressive delivery.

Moscillate – Trippy Dance – Audio

Moscillate is a Russian triptronica project.

The most recent LP to surface, Back to the Escapism, which came out earlier this month is a bewitching; Roughly twenty three minutes of transfixing electronica and vocal that transports the synapses in to underutilised patterns of brain activity in which the audience can sense their mind remapping.

My pick of the eight on the album (available on bandcamp) being the closer – Trippy Dance.

VEiiLA – Mantra – Audio

The Russian gothic-spire duo VEiiLA released the LP Dive on the 7th.

The haunting beauty of the vocal of Vif Nütefills, akin to a Brocken spectre, captivates the attention whilst two synths wrap silky webs around the listener as the electro-drums manipulated by Bes Eiredt fasten the listener in wet leather which dries around the wrists, leaving the audience writhing in tightly bound ecstasy.

The six track album (available on bandcamp) is best heard in a echoing dimly lit dungeon with candles dripping across the torso.

The third song is the six and just over a third minutes – Mantra and my pick of the release.

Dark Voice Of Angelique

Most recently released was the eleven track LP Null And Void (available on bandcamp) and is of equally harrowing soundscape.

The combinations of voice, percussive animate and inanimate objects robed in oppressive electronica cloak the room in a menacing darkness.

The fourth song is the less than three minutes of Contra.

It has been approaching a year since the Russian dreamwave outfit Наадя (Naadia) last featured.

The newest track – Облака (Clouds) – is borne through the room in contrasts of the flexing muscles of bulging bass-loops and the fragile feathering synth through which the vocal hovers like a bird flighting in and out of focus through sunlight and occlusions of broken stratus.
