Blast Unit Moscow a rock band from – well you guessed it Moscow in Russia is Nash (Vocals / Guitar), Misha (Lead Guitar / Vocals), Dima (Bass / Vocals), Seva (Keyboards / Synth) and Vlado (Drums / Vocals).
How many times have you heard the platitude that music transcends international boundaries? Perhaps someone could explain to me why Blast Unit Moscow do not feature in the UK / USA charts repeatedly and gain continual mainstream radio play? The answer is they are based in Moscow, not the UK or USA. A regular ‘must have’ feature as a support act to well established bands heading out to Russia, this is an injustice all by itself.
You will have gathered from the introduction that Blast Unit Moscow have something of a radio friendly sound so you may be pondering why I am asking you to spend a moment with the band. Whilst it is a tad gentle on the ears, these are far from wallpaper tracks. Combining ’60s Brit Blues with a ’70s new wave refocus the quintent manage to deliver music which is at once familiar yet don’t appear to be badly penned parodies as they add a zest of energy and top notch composition to deliver an ambience that is exactly what is needed for a ‘friends round, because that is what you do with friends’ – evening.
Despite my particularly unhelpful response to an initial introduction, my thanks to Edd (their Manager) for following up and I do hope Blast Unit Moscow finds themselves gaining the far higher profile and success they deserve in 2014, when of course I will once again be moaning to updates that as they are now on a Major Label I am not sure why they are bothering me with their emails, but hey, such is life, these guys deserve the break to a much larger distribution channel.
