Russian band Pinkshinyultrablast, will release their third LP Miserable Miracles, on May 4th digitally and on vinyl via Club AC30 (UK) and Shelflife (USA). The band have also announced an extensive UK tour to coincide this and the 10 year anniversary of their very first show.
With vocalist Lyubov recently moving to LA, the band have been exploring new ways of composing and collaborating. Partnered with a line-up refinement, the new material sees Pinkshinyultrablast go down a more electronic path while experimenting with new sounds and genres (including inspiration from Japanese pop such as Chiemi Manabe and Yellow Magic Orchestra).
In February 2008 Pinkshinyultrablast played their first ever show at the Money Honey Club in Saint Petersburg and after spending the following years crafting their sound they were finally able to bring their unique project to the UK supporting Moon Duo at Village Underground and performing a session with Lauren Lavern at BBC6 Music.
On ‘Miserable Miracles’ Lyubov’s delicate vocals soar above haunting ambience and ethereal embellishments complimented by driving motoric beats. Singles ‘In The Hanging Gardens’ and ‘Find Your Saint’ perfectly showcase the band’s new, more electronic direction while retaining their signature quirkiness with layers of experimentation.
Pinkshinyultrablast are Lyubov – vocals, Rustam – synths and electronics and Roman – guitars.
