Sentireascoltare premieres new Gnoomes single
This Friday the Russian outfit Gnoomes who blend a potent mix of psychedelic stargaze, kraut techno and kosmiche pop are releasing a new three track single 'Irma' – the third single from their latest album MU!. And you can listen to it two days early exclusively via Italian site Sentireascoltare.

'Irma' like the rest of MU! was recorded in the same old soviet radio station where the band recorded their second album Tschak!. 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 layered vocals stack on top of one another, weaving between pristine melody and augmented discordance. The track pulses with an electronic tinge that bubbles more subtly under the surface of immersive guitars.
The single comes with two b-sides, the first is an unreleased song called
Xmas Decay – a perfect slice of shoegaze pop where melody and soaring guitars collide and shimmer.
Following that we have a techno-driven remix of Irma by Russian producer and multi-instrumentalist Radiooff, real name Eugeniy Gorbunov. He is the person who produced the album Mu! with the band so has a very close relationship to the sounds the band create.
