Moscow-Youth-Cult---Iris

Moscow Youth Cult

Iris

Opening with the first track from the band’s forthcoming album ‘Happiness Machines’, which will see a release early next year, the EP is a finely crafted manifesto of dark pop, analogue aesthetics and dystopian glitch-dreams.

‘Iris’ itself is a Technicolor foray into the world of teen troubles and witches’ covens. Inspired by Dario Argento’s adult fairytale Suspiria [1977]: swirling, defective synthedelica writhes amidst pounding rhythms and penetrating choruses.

The song is accompanied by a beautifully realised animation from emerging talent Jake Hutchinson.

‘Survivasm’ deals with the dénouement tradition in slasherand gialli films: through repetition and subtle analogueprocessing, the song builds to a frenzied climax before severing the coils of mortality and drifting away into the blackness of the ever.

MYC’s love of obscure & cult horror films gets a further nod with their interpretation of Fabio Frizzi’s main title theme for Lucio Fulci’s infamous Zombi 2 [aka Zombie Flesh Eaters,[1979].

Brighton-based label mate Enjoyed gives the title track an old school dance rework while new Pink Mist signing, producer LA2019, provides a fragmented tropical twist on ‘Iris’.

Moscow Youth Cult’s second EP furthers the duo’s ideology of grainy, processed electronica and anthemic songwriting combined with a celebrated pop aesthetic.

 

East Midlands electronic duo Moscow Youth Cult return with their second EP – ‘Iris’ – on LoAF recordings on the 14th November 2011.

i-donline say: “Playing their material full blast to select and intimate crowds, MYC are establishing a whole new genre of visually led, experimental itch, glitch reverbs and disturbs.
