гш / Glintshake (Avantgarde, RU) + Support: Noseholes (Post-Punk, HH)
LAUNCH “Польза” (November 2018)
“Moscow’s avant-rock band гш / Glintshake release a new LP and announce a European tour”
гш / Glintshake are a remarkable band. Driven by the twin forces of singer and guitarist Ekaterina (Katya) Shilonosova and guitarist Yevgeni (Jenya) Gorbunov, and propelled by a fearsome rhythm section in Yegor Sargsyan and Alexey Yevlano, this Moscow-based five piece make intelligent and forward-thinking rock music with a breathtaking skill and verve. An incredibly charismatic and experienced live act, if still something of a secret outside Russia, гш / Glintshake’s sound is one of driving rhythms and chiming guitar duels fuelled by an unquenchable appetite for sonic experiment and risk, plus a humour and wit that need no translation. Praised by the likes of Simon Reynolds, John Robb and The Quietus, the Moscow-based five-piece release a new album, Польза (‘Benefit’), their third full length and the follow up to 2016’s ОЭЩ МАГЗИУ (‘Oesch Magziu’). The 6 track Польза signals both a consolidation in the band’s worldview and the beginning of new sonic adventures. The band tour the record in Europe in January and February 2019.
