Tsvetochnyui 15 is a high pop-art concept, and one of the most creative and original acts we’ve had the pleasure to feature since we started the site 4 years ago. We were delighted to catch up with main man Vladislaw Serezdinow. One thing, Vlad says “And very soon begin promoting our debut album “Friends Team”….

SWIT Sounds Abound #3

Gerry’s bonged off to Barcelona for the weekend to that Primavera Sound thing and I’ve been left here sniffing my own roses. Frankly, it’s how I like it, nobody saying “put the wine away”, “put the whiskey away”, “put the crack away”, put the….you get the picture. So I can honestly say I’ve been trying…

Make no bones about it , this is Animal

Chkbns – Animal “Animal” is the new single by SWIT favs Chkbns. it’s hard-edged etherealism. It’s a dark, grown-up retelling of Beauty and The Beast. It’s dangerously beautiful. The video, by Polina Washington, helps you make it through the night, just about. Check out the fab live performance of the song on KEXP, included here…

I’d love to get plastered with Tony Blaster

Tony Blaster – Black Hole Looking back it was inevitable that I would be sucked in by Tony Blaster’s Black Hole. For the song does have a gravitational field so intense that no matter, radiation or SWITman can escape. Still, it’s not a bad place to be. Tony lays down the law over a minimalist…

Lost in space with Tsvetochnyui 15.

Tsvetochnyui 15 – Debut length “Friends Team”. Many years ago I went to Jamaica and spent a couple of great weeks hanging around a little town called Port Antonio with a langer from Cork, Danny DeVito’s agent and a Swiss guy who came 5th in the World Disco Dancing Championships. The local nightclub was called…

Tsvetochnyui 15 is in bloom

Tsvetochnyui 15 – Fashion Well this is something, I’m not sure I’ve heard anything quite like it. “Fashion” by new Russian outfit Tsvetochnyui 15, is a multi-voiced electronic epic, a dark trip-hop Odyssey – forever changing, surfaces shifting like the sands on a windy day. Vlad’s vocals are astonishing, just breath-taking and the video is…

Celebrine good friends, come on!

Celebrine – Friends Here it is, the new single from Russian arthouse fantastics Celebrine. “Friends” is a rumination on just that, friendship. It’s Goth Opera (Gothera?), it bold and bright and rather magnificent, the video is like a dystopian “Alice In Wonderland”, you never know who you might meet. It’s from the album “Tristar” –…

I cannot let go of this track by Gdeto

Gdeto – Suddenly 2nd outing on SWIT and for a good reason. One of my favourite artists currently producing music, here’s the wonderful Suddenly off Gdeto’s Pillow Book EP. The video was filmed in Sofia, Aneliya’s grandfather’s town. Cannot recommend this highly enough. Check it out. Weekly YouTube Playlist

It’s Slava KPSS no less

Ненужный feat. Скорости нет, Овсянки I’ve no idea what this is about but I absolutely love the track. It’s got a Lullaby,Fascination Street style backing track. It’s just great and it’s by Slava KPSS from Russia. 2017 Spotify Link

Gdeto is somewhere in Russia that we want to be.

Gdeto – Pillow Book “Pillow Book” is the striking new EP from Gdeto* (the solo project of Aneliya from SWIT favourites CHKBNS). Combining ethereal vocals, fuzzy electronics, piano, chiming guitar and menacing electronic beats, it’s a remarkably coherent and beautiful piece of work. Sadness, regret and nostalgia are all words that spring to mind. This…
