Molchat Doma (BY)
Gritty East-European attitude from Minsk, Belarus. Molchat Doma (translated as “Houses Are Silent”) was founded in 2017 and crafted their sound 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 on Berlin-based Detriti Records. It has sold out four times and is currently on its fifth repressing due to outstanding demand. Этажи has garnered over one million views on Youtube.
The band stands for Egor Shkutko (vocals) Roman Komogortsev (guitar, synths & drum machine) and Pavel Kozlov (bass and synths). After playing to packed clubs in Warsaw, Helsinki and Berlin, the band travels to Bucharest for a night to remember & a great show!
