Sometimes psychedelic rock can extend beyond clichés of shaggy-haired ruffians; Lucidvox, a forerunner in a new and burgeoning Russian DIY rock scene, are a case in point. The brains behind this Moscowian four-headed monster are Alina, Nadezhda, Galla, and Anna. "My Land Is Your Land" was their first album, and the dark odes they they sent through amplifiers and microphones were as open-hearted and welcoming as the title suggests. The singer Alina also picks up the flute from time to time; Nadezhda’s playing is often amazingly muted-sounding. Many of the songs are also characterised by a certain mythical connection with nature.
This year they will perform at The Great Escape, Liverpool Sound City, Deserfest Berlin, and more. In 2017-2018 Lucidvox performed at Pop-Kultur festival in Berlin, Pohoda festival Slovakia, Tallinn Music Week in Estonia, Budapest Showcase Hub in Hungary, MENT Ljubljana in Slovenia, Northern Winterbeat Fest in Denmark. They are just starting their international carrier.
