Try to keep up with the breakneck pace and fragile beauty of Moscow punk rockers Glintshake


No matter how big the city, state, or country, a good music scene can bring together fans, friends, and artists from all over. Even in a country as vast as Russia! In the case of Glintshake, the story actually begins with Russia’s On-The-Go, whose videos we’ve brought your way in recent months to much acclaim. A part of the rapidly exploding Moscow music scene, both On-The-Go and Glintshake have shared stages and even members at one point with bassist Dmitry Midborn. It’s through this relationship that we were introduced to Glintshake and their explosive and frenetic new video for “Wiuwiuwiu.”

Glintshake formed in 2012 and is fronted by the fiery Cate Shilonosova. Their raw mix of new wave energy and sonic exploration has catapulted them to recognition in their home country. Within 8 months they released two EPs, Freaky Man and Evil, which garnered invitations to several major festivals including Bosco Fresh Fest, Faces & Laces, and the Afisha Picnic. Less than a year after their very first show the band was onstage opening for The Smashing Pumpkins at Stadium Live in Moscow. An impressive resume for 12 months of work! Click here for the full bio.
