NEW SINGLE – ‘RAVESTAR SUPREME’
OUT 30th MARCH ON CLUB AC30
7” / DIGITAL
· “A quiet riot of ethereal vocals and lustrous guitars. Pinkshinyultrablast a valid insight into young modern Russia via the early-90s Thames Valley.” Guardian
“Beautifully toned and unconventionally fast, a gutsy effort that makes a big impression” NME
“A complex but sumptuous confluence of mathy basslines and waves of melodic ecstasy.” Q
“Excessively impressive, unexpectedly fast-paced shoegaze.” Drowned In Sound
Hot on the heels of their acclaimed album ‘Everything Else Matters’, Pinkshinyultrablast, release a a new single ‘Ravestar Supreme’ on the 30th of March on Club AC30.
Hailing from a city more synonymous with the State Conservatory rather than a gang of shoegaze addicts, they’ve been compared to Lush. But this is no mere throwback tribute – due to their sharp, icy electronics and ability to subvert the genre, bringing something new to the table. They possess not only the spirit of late 80s/early 90s British bands like Ride, but also machine-made sounds of the same era from Sabres Of Paradise or Global Communication, not to mention wider vibrations like Cluster, Popul Vuh, Terry Riley and Philip Glass.
‘Ravestar Supreme’ continues in the tradition of Pinkshinyultrablast’s gift for radiant harmony, buoyed by piercing guitars and jets of synth. Elegiac, evoking widescreen visions of scenery passing by on long trips, with a penchant for melodic gems and shimmering minor keys – Pinkshinyultrablast once again show their high form on ‘Ravestar Supreme’. Their debut album ‘Everything Else Matters’ is out now on Club AC30. Welcome to your new favourite Russian band.
Pinkshinyultrablast are Igor – bass, Lyubov – vocals, Sergey – drums, Rustam – synths and electronics and Roman – guitars.
