It is a couple of years since the indie-rock quartet Indytronics from Ukraine last featured.
Their most recent track Shark finds Indytronics allowing themselves wide space in which to investigate their material and one can’t help but be drawn to recalling the sound of Gary Numan in which the quartet are able to discard synths to deliver equally as generous landscape and a testament to their abilities.
I would like to take the opportunity to thank all musicians be you: In the New Year Ninety; Whether I have reviewed your music – or not – you make the world a better place and please keep turning your thoughts to music. From thirty to twenty one on the readers selection for the New Year Ninety 2016.
Daniel Bogdanenko (Guitar / Vocals), Vitaliy Koutsiuk (Bass), Ruslan Dobrov (Drums) and Denys Rybchenko (Guitar / Backing Vocals) from Kiev in Ukraine form the spacey-indie band Indytronics.
On hitting play you get the sense that gravity is falling away as a Indytronics deliver a heavily reverbed sound which minds of exploring the earth’s mesosphere. An ever present percussion gives the out-put the anchor, whilst guitars are able to float around the pivot, with the bass providing the connectivity to which vocals echo between the elements.
Despite the easy viscosity of the music, the ears catch a scratchy energy which gives Indytronics the ability to provide the listener with an unfolding story-line of building intensity that maintains the attention. The quartet are able to transport the audience from altitudinal loftiness to crunchy temper and inevitably it is when they hit the ‘press-on’ button I find most enjoyment.
Though having been around since 2012, it was only earlier this year that their début LP – Scintilla Wave was released and it is a fine introduction to the band.
I certainly look forward to hearing more over the coming years.
