Molchat Doma (translated as “Houses Are Silent”), founded in 2017 in Minsk, Belarus, stands at the intersection of post-punk, new-wave and synth-pop. Dark yet danceable, and with a heavy dose of goth ethos, their music is reminiscent of the masters that predate them, but make no mistake: Molchat Doma creates a sound and meaning that is immediately recognizable as all their own.
Their second LP, Этажи (pronounced Etazhi, meaning “Floors”) was released in 2018. It has sold out more than 10000 copies and is currently on repressing due to outstanding demand. The song “Sudno” doesn’t leave the global top viral on Spotify since April 2020.
Their 3rd album "Monument" is out now via Sacred Bones.
A Dull Set is a Prague-based duo Sam and Hayden, born either side of the UK's North/South divide. Drawing influence from early-80s British new wave and post-punk, the fast tempo of the reverb-laced electronic drums pave the way for short and snappy, melodic and sardonic songs - delivered in the deep dulcet tones of the men in question. Dave Allen's iconic bass riffs meet Adrian Borland's unique guitar creations, as described by one blog: ''It has connections to almost everything that came up in the turn of the 70's for the 80's, from Gang of Four to The Cure, from A Certain Ratio to Bauhaus. Despite sounding nostalgic, A Dull Set know exactly where they are stepping."
