The hot summer doesn’t stop the ever reliable Berlin-based Detriti Records from announcing of two new vinyl/digital releases at the start of September : the gloomy synthpunk project of the label boss Words and Actions “Senza veleno” and the second album, titled “Etazhi”, from “the Belarusian New Order of our generation” Molchat Doma [молчат дома] with their, both musically and lyrically, visceral and intense 80’s influenced yet futuristic hybrid of bleak post-punk and minimalistic synth-pop.
Hailing from the capital Minsk, the 3-piece band is comprised of Egor Shkutko (vocals), Roman Komogortsev (guitar, synth) and Pavel ‘Pablo’ Kozlovsky (bass).
A driving mesmerizing melancholic bassline interwines with sparkling guitar chords backed by dense and precise drum machine beats, sparse claps and linndrum effects. Stabs of dour icy synth combined with the heartfelt and agonizing vocals emphasize the sense of extreme sadness and despair in questioning belief systems, death and leaving loved ones behind.
An highly compelling listening from an album to not miss out on.
