Biography

Russian Federation

Love Cult are a duo from Russia, aficionados of all things troublesome, distressed and emotional. Northern Technology. Dark . Obsessive . Militant House. .

Love Cult’s music escapes the cleanness or overproduction whatsoever. Their swampy tracks bear the weight of Putin’s Russia: murky, decaying, out there. Is this dance music? Well, if “club” means a place for lost souls, yes. It’s “” as well, but it will shake you.

Disregarding every possible parameter and value of human voice, the remnants of Anya’s vocal lines hang in the air like heavy smoke rings. Sub-heavy beats thunder relentlessly behind raw and naked clockwork programming. At points, microscopic samples scrape as if threatening to knife the listener. On their latest EP, “Wonderland”, every fraction of the sound was re-amped through empty corridors, metal tubes and prime analogue equipment.

Love Cult have given live performances across Russia and Europa, played at festivals like Sonar, Flow and Manifesta, successfully shining in art galleries as well as club spaces. Anya Kuts represented Russia at Red Bull Music Academy 2013 in New York.

Anya and Ivan’s motto is as follows: if a place seems , there’s something to learn there.
