Traveling At the Speed of Music: Motorama – Dispersed Energy / Heavy Wave (post-punk, Russia)


51691fa7417346bda442985a3471

Motorama, described by some of their compatriots as “the best Russian band”, is a post-punk quintet hailing from Rostov-on-Don, South of Russia. The band is one of the very few acts that give a tiny glimpse into the unknown realm of Russian alternative scene.

With 2 albums, few self-released EP’s and 2 brilliant singles already in their bag, the band is preparing to put out their third album, entitled Poverty, this month. Motorama’s gloomy output, heavily under the influence of Joy Division’s records,  marries Interpol’s motorik basslines with vampiric delivery in flawless English by the band’s singer, Vladislav Parshin. Their songs carry a heavy load of melancholic beauty and melodies strong enough to make feel the need to hum along.

The first tracks from the new album, Dispersed Energy and Heavy Wave, that the band have premiered online, do not signal a sharp turn in Motorama’s musical direction. Which is not necessarily a bad thing.

The preorders for Poverty (CD/LP/Cass/digital) begin 12.01.15 from band’s webstore http://talitres.bigcartel.com/artist/motorama .
