The three musicians who form Gnoomes hail from Perm in Russia- yet rather than being confined
or frustrated by their surroundings, the three-piece outfit have used their origins as a
springboard to the unknown, via the skysurfing radiance of their debut album for Rocket.
'Ngan!' is an album suffused with a potent sense of wonder - it's bookended by the enormous
twin psychic monoliths of 'Roadhouse' and 'My Boy', which form dreamlike aural travelogues
clocking in at around a quarter-hour each, and take influences as diverse as the fiery avant-six
-string scree of Atlas Sound, the classic motorik of Neu! and Kompakt label techno, and sculpt
them into a wide-eyed, kaleidoscopic sweep of sound. It's a style which nods to the melodic sweetness of The Flaming Lips or
Tame Impala as much as the synapse-shifting dynamics of Animal Collective or My Bloody Valentine. 'Myriads' is nothing less
than a sweet and somewhat slightly dazed pop song - distantly related to the muse of Syd Barrett, yet filtered through the band's
ambitiously hallucinogenic soundworld and propulsive rhythmic drive. Elsewhere,on 'Moognes' the collision of melancholy vocal
harmonies, luminous guitar melody and in-the-red intensity makes for a sound as bracing as it is beatific
