Today Belarusian trio Molchat Doma have shared a new single “Discoteque,” which is a song taken from their forthcoming album Monument, out on November 13th via Sacred Bones.
The band describe the track as “just a light dance composition, which was created in order to make the listener move to the beat of the music. A kind of answer to ‘Just Can’t Get Enough’ by Depeche Mode…Ideal for both mood elevation and unbridled fun.”
The single comes with a beautifully shot video directed by Alexey Terehoff that finds the Belarusian trio performing inside the Memorial Museum-Studio of Z. Azgur in Minsk to an audience of the museum’s imposing statues and shelves of busts, ironically illuminated by a disco ball.
Director Alexey Terehoff aimed to capture the group’s essence with the video, dubbing the song “Totalitarian disco,” and adding: “Real post-punk fades into the corny, harmless modern capitalist world. The group ‘MOLCHAT DOMA’ is from Minsk. This is the city that embalmed and revived all the idols from the era of the Soviet dictatorship. There are no politics in the video, only the STYLE, a mixture of pure, concentrated neo-totalitarian aesthetics and acidic post-punk.”
