Gothy minimal-wave frozen below the Cold War permafrost... Shkutko sings like he’s reading his last will... Their music is like noticing the decaying paint on architecture, rusting instead of peeling... Despite the darkness threatening to take over every aspect of life, these three musicians will keep living, marching towards the future with a small flicker of hope leading them through the murky present...

Molchat Doma (Russian: Молчат Дома, "Houses are Silent") is a Belarusian post-punk band from Minsk. Formed in 2017, I first heard them two years later in 2019 after the release of their second studio album Etazhi (RU: Этажи, "Floors"). I didn't think too much of them at first, but something about the sound had a hold on me and would not let go...

Perhaps it was the desperation in the singer's voice, maybe it was the Soviet trappings of nostalgia they drew upon themselves, maybe it was the addictive synth compositions found throughout their discography, compelling nodding heads, tapping feet, or dancing bodies. It was most likely a bit of everything; Molchat Doma is more than the sum of its parts.

In any case, they are the favorite band of the person I am today.
