We’ve been following Nottingham based raw ElectroPop outfit Moscow Youth Cult for a while now and their new EP ‘Iris’ gives as a tantalising view of what to expect from their début album.
The title track (first seen accompanying it’s video) is a strange, but beautiful, head-on collision between gritty Indie-Pop and chainsaw Minimal Synth, with a dancefloor beat. As catchy as it is abrasive this is garage ElectroPop at it’s finest. The rest of the EP takes MYC down a more experimental, atmospheric road, having got the catchy Pop tune out of the way the guys are free to explore their electronic soundscapes which ranges from the eerie, to the frantic, to the majestic. Two reMixes of ‘Iris’ are also packed in the EP including the Sci-Fi Pop-Funk of the ‘LA2019’ reMix (which, surprisingly, doesn’t sounds like Vangelis).
