The northern band known as Lava Lite tend to introduce themselves in straightforward, even arid terms: "We are a shoegaze/dreampop outfit, formed four years ago in Saint Petersburg, Russia." Given that business-like statement, it comes as no surprise to see a simple team-sheet follow quickly afterwards. Facts and figures predominate. The band members are Sergey Timoshenko (guitar/vocals); Nikita Tarakanov (guitar/keyboards); Paul Kostyaev (bass); and Eugene Kulikov (drums/percussion).

Against this backdrop of no-nonsense prose, it falls to webzines and enthused amateur portals to create an air of romance around Lava Lite's shoegaze aesthetic. One such publication, Novaya Zemlya, recently celebrated the band's trademark sound with an especially florid turn of phrase. "You'll discover a wall of sound and melodies that disperse like water upon glass. The vocals take wing and depart for some beautiful, distant goal. There are driving rhythms on display - and a tendency to emphasize atmosphere over traditional song structures."


LAVA LITE играют шумную поп-музыку - гитарные каскады и лавина ударных чередуются с яркими созвездиями аккордов и четкими ритмами, что трудно не качать ногой в такт. Представьте себе дискотеку на космодроме в лучах заходящего летнего солнца и растворяйтесь в теплом вибрирующем воздухе.

Группа образована в Санкт Петербурге в июне 2011 г.
