Sounds of Sputnik

Sounds of Sputnik is Roma Kalitkin, whose signature sound mixes post-rock, shoegaze and dream pop with a slight kickback to noise pop. Originally from Rostov-on-Don in southern Russia, he draws inspiration from My Bloody Valentine, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Ride, Sonic Youth, Happy Mondays, and Slowdive. The musical semblance of this project is closer to the style of Mogwai, Air Formation, Hammock, Airiel, Jesu, Highspire, The Twilight Sad.

Dubbing himself a “white crow”, the music he makes has always gone against trends within Russia, both now as a solo artist and for the 20-odd years he played in various post-punk and shoegaze bands prior to that.

Check out his SoundCloud page, YouTube Channel, Facebook Page, and Twitter Feed.
