Russian Baths have a new video, opening for FACS and Marissa Nadler/Stephen Brodsky
NYC-based Russian Baths blend '90s influences like Sonic Youth, Nirvana, Archers of Loaf, Lungfish and more to create a cocktail that nods its head to classic indie, post-hardcore and feedback-riddled punk like Flipper all at once. Their latest is "Parasite," a track that balances the vocals of Jess Rees' high pitch against the lower register of Luke Koz's, all while guitars trade barbs between a jagged atonal clean and a thundering distortion. Previously released as a standalone single, it's now paired with a spanking new video which premieres here today. Check it out for the first time below.
Russian Baths have two appealing hometown shows coming up in the very near future including tonight (June 4) at Saint Vitus with the incredible post-Disappears project FACS and Hubble (aka Ben Greenberg of Uniform) (tickets) and nine days later ALSO at Saint Vitus (6/13) with the Marisa Nadler / Stephen Brodsky project Droneflower, as well as Annie Hart of Au Revoir Simone (tickets).
