When you first see their name it’s hard to tell whether they accidentally fell on the keyboard or it’s someones password to their Facebook page. But all that quickly melts away with the sound of lead signer Nastya and music creator Nick. This Moscow based electronic group creates an aura of sound that reverberates through your ears in such a way, you can’t help but move. They remind me of an early Crystal Castles with a smoother rhythmic kick to their melodies. Not only are the songs structured well and well orchestrated but their visual tastes are something to be inspired by.
The difference between someone skimming the internet and glancing passed your music or staying to listen requires something more than talent, it also requires catching their eyes. Often times the first thing you see of a new artist is not the music but their visual taste and how they present themselves artistically. It is so important to be the full package now a days in a world where music can easily be made in your room and thrown online and you can get 100,000 hits virally. We applaud these two emerging artists for their care in detail to their craft and presentation and hope to see more soon! IC3PEAK is definitely a duo I would keep my eye on!
