Formed in 2014 in Perm, Russia, indie trio Gnoomes are Alex, Dmitriy and Pavel, who describe their synthy, fuzzy music as ‘stargaze’. Influenced by English indie, Krautrock and psych, they are a defiantly odd hybrid of sonics, Surrealism and optimistic philosophy.
New album Tschak! (named after a wizards and monsters board game) is out soon, and 6Music’s Marc Riley loves them- I can think of no better reason not to appreciate them- he got good taste. See the strange video for single City Monk below.
Out on March 10th Rocket Recordings
