RUSSIAN BATHS – “SLENDERMAN”

There is an undeniable pull into the darkness in this computerized terror-trip that skillfully pulls from various horror tropes. A cabin in the woods. Monsters beneath the floorboards. A irresistible pull towards its center. All of this under the huge shoegaze pall of the Brooklyn duo. Russian Baths combine the mechanical whine of 80’s noise rock legends Big Black, the go-for-the-throat shred of Marnie Stern and the massive shoegaze sheen of bands like Stargzer Lillies. It’s a deadly combo.
