Emerging from the backwaters of the industrial parks, art schools and knitting factories of the East Midlands, Moscow Youth Cult draw their inspiration from the riches of electronica and the grainy, insalubrious aesthetic of obscure Sci-Fi and Horror videos of the last 30 years.
Drawing comparisons with the likes of Telefon Tel Aviv, Fuck Buttons and Boards of Canada, Moscow Youth Cult’s live shows use re-edited clips from choice B-movies, beamed from a magic retro television, to evoke both fear and euphoria amid sweaty, analogue workouts and pounding, digital ecstasy.
Girls of Boredom - which featured as song of the day on The Line of Best Fit - mixes effervescent chip tunes and dark, driving dub-step rhythms with an incisive vocal warbling. Sakura Sakura wows with upbeat ecstatic synthscapes and jittery arrangements while La Casa’s dreamy rhythmic dystopia breaks into euphoric sighs and atonal flows.
