White Russia are an electronic act hailing from South London. There are very much on trend at the moment with their sound based around dark melodic beats with a powerful and beautiful yet haunting vocal carrying you through the track, with hints of bands like Depeche Mode and Placebo delicately placed in the undertones. Marina Elderton’s vocal sits perfectly with the pristine beats provided by producer Benjamin Bufton. This act is still unbelievably unsigned but with tracks like ‘Charmless State‘ and ‘O Jerusalem‘ it is only a matter of time before they are recognised. The video for the wonderful track ‘Charmless State‘ directed by Lee Mangan is up for Best Video at the London Independent Film Festival. There are no set dates for releases etc at the moment but their are exciting things in the pipeline for this band so keep an eye on their Myspace for details.
