Premiere: listen to the spine-tingling new album from Russian electro-quartet D-Pulse

7 April 2017

The Calvert Journal premieres Serpentine, the second album from St Petersburg-based electronic quartet D-Pulse, out today on the American label Details Records.

After debuting their first LP Consequenced in 2014 the band, who are originally from Izhevsk, have had a busy schedule putting on audio-visual performances from Europe as far as South Korea as part of their side project TUNDRA, as well as collaborating with Moscow club-night Arma17 and galleries across Russia.

“We are doing lots of audio-visual performances and installations as part of TUNDRA collective and bringing these elements to D-Pulse live shows. But we’re always been studio rats, feeling very comfy in our laboratory environment,” the band told The Calvert Journal.

Once called “Simian Mobile Disco’s eastern cousins” by Thump magazine, with this latest LP D-Pulse are moving away from recognised genres of music into something more fluid and experimental — a direction that’s reflected in the album’s title.

“Serpentine stands for a kind of winding road with sharp turns leading you to the unreachable mountain top. It symbolises a constantly evolving creative process full of experiments, mixing genres and finding the right sound formula,” they revealed.

Serpentine is out now and available for purchase here.
