ACTUAL RUSSIAN BRIDES
Electronic pop in a savvy blue vein:
Actual Russian Brides from Sydney deliver a sexy, deliberate downtempo vibe driven by the restless lyrics of Lull (Elena Knox) and electronic goodness by media jockey partner Baby Swindle (Lindsay Webb).
Born East Berlin winter 2009, Actual Russian Brides are set to go: an appealing two-piece busting to tour and already on the airwaves. Set-up involves analogue synths, drum machines, multiple mics and unpredictable instruments. A.R.B. eschew the ubiquitous laptop, providing instead a visual and evocative live show.
Baby Swindle began creating sound installations and beat-based tracks while studying conceptual art at the prestigious Städelschule in Frankfurt/Main.
A published and experienced poet, vocalist and video artist Lull once tongue-kissed Kate Winslet in a film by Jane Campion, wearing only black leather and a dog collar.
This fresh collaboration is as mesmerizing live as on their debut recording "Miss Sled". Described by a lovestruck fan as "accurate and spellbinding", Actual Russian Brides play the voices in your head and the beats in your heart.
