Pinkshinyultrablast at Wondering Sound

The Russian group Pinkshinyultrablast are already garnering raves from the likes of the Guardian, the NME and BBC Radio, and all it takes is a few seconds of the radiant “Land’s End” to see why. The song is both beautiful and mysterious: filmy guitars form a mirage-like backdrop for Lyubov’s (one name only, thank you) drifting, ethereal vocals. It would be easy to name-check the Cocteau Twins, but there’s more drive and ballast to “Land’s End” than that group’s drifting lullabies. By the time the guitar woosh out full force at the halfway mark, it feels more like a wind turbine than a gentle spring breeze. “Land’s End” is a kaleidoscope of sound, ever-changing, always entrancing.
