Who knew shoegaze indie-pop had reached Russia? Well it has in the form of St. Petersburg's Pinkshinyultrablast. They have updated the genre a little to include ethereal twinkles which create a dynamic sound againsts the distorted guitars. Kiddy Pool Dreams is the first single from their forthcoming second album of the same name.

Russian lifers Pinkshinyultrablast have been spending their recent years endeavouring to convert their nougat-centered shoegaze into heavy math ‘n’ metal, and on ‘Kiddy Pool Dreams’ it works wonders: an elegiac, spaced out production that makes Cocteau Twins sound like stay-at-home agoraphobes bends and breaks under the weight of riffs that sound like they were delivered by And So I Watch You From Afar. Between segments of blissful ambience and furious rock ‘n’ roll, listening to Pinkshinyultrablast now feels like diving into a ravine: the epic fall is met with water submerging itself into your ears.
On the flip, Pinkshinyultrablast use ‘Kitty’s Cool Beams’ to make you think of a parallel universe where A Sunny Day In Glasgow are less about songs, more about jams, a synth rattling away over a gorgeous… programmed cowbell? It’s hard to say for sure, but the out-of-this-world aurora remains. I hope you brought your telescope.
