Review from Bodystyler

DEIMOS MOON was founded in 2010 in the “Northern capital” of Russia – Saint-Petersburg by talented DJ and composer Aleksey Osipov. Aleksey is the mastermind of the project, responsible for all the music and most part of the lyrics. In 2012 Aleksey invited singer Anastasia Velikanova to join the band, and it was just the right choice. Anastasia’s voice enriched the album and helped to reveal deeper meanings of some compositions. Another great singer and keyboard player Nyura Pashkevitch-Tichina aka NEWta added her vocals to the songs “Paralyzed Shut-Eye” and “Other Place” and also played live shows with DEIMOS MOON.

In 2012 – 2013 DEIMOS MOON recorded the first internet-albums entitled “Mega-Chaos” and “Other Place”, influenced by Synthpop of the 80s and 90s. The first live shows took place in St.Petersburg in 2012, in July that year the band participated in a huge music contest “I am an Artist” in Moscow. In November 2014 DEIMOS MOON performed as a support act for well-known Italian singer TYING TIFFANY in St.Petersburg, and the next year the formation became the finalist of the prestigious music contest “15 Days” in St.Petersburg, participated in the famous international festival Emergenza and released the first official single “Connected” via Inversion Records, and in November 2017 the single “Paralyzed Shut-Eye” (DEIMOS MOON feat. NEWta) was released via ScentAir Records.

The style of the formation is a delicate blend of classic synthpop with the elements of trance and techno of the 80s and 90s, and of course some modern tendencies. Supplemented with powerful and cold female vocals a wonderful and mysterious atmosphere is created to lead listeners away into the world of fantasies, romantic dreams and dark desires. Rigid romance of a big city, anti-utopia, images of heaven and hell can be found in the creations of DEIMOS MOON, a whole space for life and love among machines and computers.

And right now the band is very happy and excited to present the first full-length studio album “Dark Desire”, where all these numerous subjects became a source of inspiration for the band’s album latest album “Dark Desire”, which turned out to be lighter than it might seem: dynamic rhythms, crafty combinations of different dance genres, not overloaded with darkness, beautiful vocals are enough to strike listeners’ imagination, without afflicting them. “Dark Desire” is a special kind of darkness with a lot of its very own light, energy, and magic, especially good for winter – a season of melancholy and new hopes at the same time, when you always wait for a wonder to come.
