From Moscow, Russia comes Curd Lake and their glimmering synth distorted shoegazey guitar and their overall lovely chillwave track called, “Young Waves”!

This new video clip for Curd Lake’s song ‘Young Waves’ is initiative and collaboration of Alexey Kurbatov and Alexander Pavlov, filmmakers from the Moscow School of New Cinema. Using 8-mm Kodak film, they produce an emotional and controversial picture of Crimean timelessness full of transhistorical wormholes. The video blends the disarming mimicry to late-Soviet romanticism with the visibly ominous grin of historic remnants and the unsettling anticipation of battles to come. Military helicopters encroach upon Crimea’s touristic paradise (located on the northern coast of the Black Sea) with its puritan ethics, kefir and caramel cream, denuding its paradoxical, inconvenient and godforsaken reality.

Sadly, Curd Lake is not a band any longer, but their music lives on with this fantastic new video by Alexey Kurbatov and Alexander Pavlov.
