Shortparis (RUS, Dark Electro, Post-Punk, Industrial, Art-Pop)
FORMED IN ST.PETERSBURG IN 2012. IRRATIONAL, SPASTIC DANCE GROOVE _THEY ARE 2018. __THEY ARE THE NOW_
”Amazing Russian band who combine a post industrial electronic throb with a haunting falsetto vocal, guitars, Belgian new beat and soundtrack into a compelling and brilliant whole. Their music is full of groundbreaking action and intensity and a dark and melancholic danger, they are the post darkwave, they have the songs and the charisma to fill the Depeche Mode stadium circuit, they sound like the 21st century now, they make electronics sound warm and human and full of vim and fuck and the singer does these wild sex dances that part hypnotise the audience and part terrify them. In short Shortparis are the band of the moment.
This is a true death disco – a post-industrial dark and thrilling
ride on the dark side that you can dance to. A thrilling combination of electronics and post-punk deconstruction with operatic vocals".
