Your fave Russian band Gnoomes have just revealed the second single from their forthcoming album MU!, which is released on 31 May.
The single is called 'Glasgow Coma State', and you can watch the psyched out video exclusively via our friends at Echoes and Dust: Echoes and Dust
The video is made by Zachary J Rodell, a visual performance artist who uses analog light show techniques to create unique improvised light shows in his home city of San Francisco. He has helped light up bands like Terry Riley, Silver Apples, My bloody Valentine, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard and many more.

MU! has been part recorded in the same old soviet radio station where the band recorded their last album Tschak! part in a professional studio and then part at home. This was to ensure the best capture of Gnoomes live assault. The results brim with a magnitude and sense of coherence that belies some of the environment it was created in. Fuzz-driven guitars shift in engulfing waves, resembling shoegaze giants at their most ferocious, whilst elsewhere layered vocals stack on top of one another, weaving between pristine melody and augmented discordance. Whilst the glacial electronics and coldwave tendencies that soaked much of their previous album may be more absent here, this record pulses with an electronic tinge that bubbles more subtly under the surface of immersive guitars.
The band are taking MU! on the road, starting with a very special show in their home city of Perm where the band are hosting label mates Gum Takes Tooth and Mamuthones, plus others at Gnoomes Fest 2019:
