is a band from Kazan, Tatarstan, that positions itself as a "musical laboratory".
Their new EP can be described as experimental electronica with a strong improvisational backbone that makes prominent use of Turkic instruments. The grooves feel like they could fall apart at any second, but that's exactly what makes them stand out.
The lyrics are truly poetic and the production is detailed but it leaves enough room for Radif's emotional vocals to breathe.
We asked Radif to talk about Күлмәк (Shirt), the standout track on the EP.
