Bio

Emerging from the backwaters of the industrial parks, art schools and knitting factories of the East Midlands, Moscow Youth Cult are the product of growing up during the post-human experience where users and digital devices come to exist in a kind of faux-symbiosis.

Incorporating defibrillating beats, dream pop melodies and homemade samples of VHS players, all dressed in vertiginous swirls of defective synthedelica, forthcoming album 'Happiness Machines' is the sound of the machine stirring in the music, the music stirring in the machine.

Drawing its inspiration from the riches of electronica and the grainy, insalubrious aesthetic of obscure Sci-Fi and Horror videos of the last 30 years [as well as the clunking players that drive them] Happiness Machines is “chillwave if it was uprooted from its languid beachfront and thrown down a dark mine” [The Line of Best Fit].

With comparisons with the likes of Telefon Tel Aviv, Fuck Buttons, Salem and
Boards of Canada, MYC’s live shows use re-edited clips from choice B-movies [beamed
from a magic television] to evoke both fear and euphoria amid sweaty, analogue
workouts and pounding, digital ecstasy.
