this weeks newbie come direct from the land of ladas, vodka, and communism … yep russia. cosmonaut grechko, sounds like the soundtrack to some 90’s playstation game (imagine ridge racer). all synthy, with plenty of beeps and sparkly bits chucked in for good measure. although lacking a certain style means it’s hard to really place where cosmonaut really sits. the second electro pop outfit to emerge from russia in the last few months, the first being xuman. could this signal a rise of russian influence on the european electro pop scene. we’ll have to just wait and see, but in the mean time lets just dance.
