Single: Russian Baths – Bind

“Russian Baths fuses the abrasive sounds of New York in the eighties, the angular outbursts of DC hardcore, shoegaze’s torrents of noise and the suffocating anxiety of the Information Age. One part horror movie soundtrack, and one part personal confession, the band’s music is at once imposing and intimate. 

“Bind” premiered on FLOOD Magazine who noted it, “plays with horror-film conventions as the band’s signature gothic take on noise rock unravels from a frantic 7/4 time signature into an uneasy final 90 seconds of instrumental panic.”

The band shares, “It’s all a sinking ship that keeps pressing onward. The lyrics seem to touch on historical grievances, from witch hunts to trials at sea, all of them connected by misguided vengeance desperate to escape the past but doomed to repeat it.”

“Bind” is produced and mixed by Jeff Berner (Psychic TV, Activity, Stuy) and mastered by Sarah Register (Protomartyr, Kim Gordon, Wye Oak).”

The previous single ‘Split from the upcoming album slated for release later in June has caught my attention. Russian Baths, a New York-based band, has once again delivered a post-core energetic track that resonates with me. The song features a fantastic atmosphere and incredible rough guitars that are a treat to the ears. To add more depth to the track’s overall vibe, they have accompanied it with a haunting video that is sure to give you goosebumps. The band’s exceptional craftsmanship is evident in both of their singles, which promise to deliver a stellar album. I can’t wait to see what they have in store for us.
