VENUE: C-CLUB, KREUZBERG

TIME: 20:30-21:00

This is a group that tears it up big time on stage. The sparse lighting, cavernous atmospherics, and riotous performance summons up the ghost of shoe-gazing at its most inspiring. Mojo magazine already picked up on the band following a typically stunning appearance at Spot Festival in Arhus, Denmark, claiming the future of Finnish music to be secure in the hands of Murmansk, defining their music as “mixing the attack of Death Valley 69 Sonic Youth with My Bloody Valentine and topping it with Julie Driscoll vocals”. Danish and Finnish music media has found some resemblance to Norwegian Serena-Maneesh.

The latest album, “Eleven Eyes To Shade” is just released by Spinefarm/Universal to much critical acclaim in Finland with releases starting to be pencilled in elsewhere for later this year.
