Molchat Doma ‘Monument’ (Sacred Bones)

Evoking cryptic cold war ambiguity and channelling the darker side of 1980s new wave and synthpop (Joy Division, Bauhaus, The Cure), this intense Belarusian trio, led by compelling baritone Egor Shkutko, seem set for big things since recently signing for Sacred Bones. Though ‘Monument’ perhaps lacks the incisiveness of predecessor ‘Etazhi’, the propulsive irresistibility of tracks like ‘Oтвета Hет’ or the anthemic ‘Звезды’ continue to make a strong case for these bona-fide underground sensations.
