There’s lots of great musical adventure going on in Russia at the moment. At LTW have been documenting the bands like Shortparis and Lucidvox and the new Russian scene. The vast country also has a big darkwave scene with many cities boasting dark and wonderful groups. St Petersburg sees The Burning Giraffe a classic darkwave band that lands between the reverbed majesty of prime time Sisters Of Mercy and the carnie fairground garageband shuffle of mid-period Bad Seeds or the brooding beauty of The Doors . Somehow they stake their own claim to these areas with an intriguing blend of smoldering tension and dark melodies.
