TUNE GNOOMES - Myriads
Gnoomes release new single ‘Roadhouse’ on Rocket Recordings on 9th October, ahead of debut album ‘Ngan!’ (16th October).
Gnoomes hail from Perm, in the Ural region of Russia. From this location they’ve sculpted a sound that takes inspiration from their surroundings yet also looks beyond it to the astral realms above. “When in the winter it’s 30 degrees below zero, and in Summer 30 degrees above zero, you start to get high without any drugs.” the band describe of their geographical isolation.
Following on from their first released material (‘It’s Moonbow-time, boy’ EP), ‘Ngan!’ is an album suffused with a potent sense of wonder - it sees them forge a unique, forward-thinking sound world that sidesteps the often clichéd conventions of psych and shoe gaze. It’s the sound of a band looking above and beyond modern archetypes of guitar-fuelled noise in search of a strange and beguiling personal vision.
