There is something happening in Russia..
Besides the New Russian Wave there are plenty of artists, who are working on the borderline of the mainstream and underground, floating between radio format and the niche experimental sound. And so do Blankenberge – a shoegaze/dream pop band from Saint Petersburg. The band creates dream-weaving and warm reverb-drenched, drone raging songs that swell into soaring ethereal harmonies with vocals on the border of shoegazing, post-rock and dream-pop.
Blankenberge will be accompanied on tour by their fellows from Moscow Life on Venus, whose music represents a perfect blend of surreal soundscapes and soft, subtle vocal lines.
