Share new single & accompanying video “Discoteque”
From the upcoming album ‘Monument’ out November 13th on Sacred Bones
Belarusian trio Molchat Doma share the anthemic new single “Discoteque,” an up-tempo song taken from their forthcoming album ‘Monument’, which will be released on November 13th via Sacred Bones.
The band describe the track as “just a light dance composition, which was created in order to make the listener move to the beat of the music. A kind of answer to ‘Just Can’t Get Enough’ by Depeche Mode…Ideal for both mood elevation and unbridled fun.”
Nevertheless, the song deftly captures those moments of respite and escapism found through music and dance. The single comes with a beautifully shot video directed by Alexey Terehoff that finds the Belarusian trio performing inside the Memorial Museum-Studio of Z. Azgur in Minsk to an audience of the museum’s imposing statues and shelves of busts, ironically illuminated by a disco ball.
Director Alexey Terehoff aimed to capture the group’s essence with the video, dubbing the song “Totalitarian disco,” and adding: “Real post-punk fades into the corny, harmless modern capitalist world. The group ‘MOLCHAT DOMA’ is from Minsk. This is the city that embalmed and revived all the idols from the era of the Soviet dictatorship. There are no politics in the video, only the STYLE, a mixture of pure, concentrated neo-totalitarian aesthetics and acidic post-punk.”
This hellish disco beat takes immediate focus to this boisterous yet charming new composition from Molchat Doma. This band brings big disco beats and momentum and collides this with harsher elements they convey and the end result is fierce and addictive.
