IVATU – is band of three formed in Moscow in 2016 with the debut EP «Revel». The band’s music is noted for its trip-hop, alternative, darkwave, coldwave, psychodelic and minimalism influences. It’s melodic, but sharp with poetic lyrics. The band likes to avoid modern computers, using vintage gear during recording and live shows. EP «Revel» which has a taste of late Portishead and early Massive Attack aesthetics has been followed with a long European Tour including around 13 countries.The new album will coming out soon.
„Pumped over, and at the same time rather transparent sound proceeding from lots of analog synths in combination with gloomy and very sensitive female vocal gives unforgettable effect, a certain mix of Massive Attack, Cocteau Twins with minimal-techno impregnations turns out.”
„IVATU doesn’t need the complicated and heavy arrangements, on the contrary, their music seeks to minimize any stratifications to leave as much space as possible for the special energy of this strange project.”
supprorting IVATU will be local musician Monster Zero.
A solo act of Teo Olter combining live drums with hip-hop inspired electronics.
