There are so many reasons why you should check out this band.

Tarkovsky are a female fronted band based in Khabarovsk, Russia and call themselves the ABBA of EMO. I can’t stop listening to the track Реквием from their album Сплит (I keep reading this as “cunt” but I think it’s just Russian for “split”) because of the crazy production, I can’t put my finger on it but theres something about the drums and guitar tone that I really like. There’s a desperation in how it sounds and a weird hollowness, it’s difficult to explain, just listen to the track and you’ll understand.

Tarkovsky’s other record “End of 2014” is a collection of songs they have released on compilations and splits that begins with an Orchid cover so is also worth a listen.

If I had any more information about this band I would share it with you, buy their releases so they will tour and we can unravel this mystery in person
