Kedr Livanskiy – Otvechai Za Slova (Keep Your Word)


Russian artist Kedr Livanskiy shares another great track from her brilliant January Sun EP, out this week on 2MR. There are probably no hits on Livanskiy’s debut record, as its beauty tends to be a little icy and bleak at times, and her lyrics are obviously almost entirely in Russian. But through the hypnotic haze of even her raviest tracks (like this one) shines a natural pop sensibility, revealing an exciting talent who incorporates myriad diverse influences — Laurel Halo, Inga Copeland, Aphex Twin, Mazzy Star, Teklife, ‘90s & early ‘00s-era MTV, and as “Keep Your Word” exhibits, old school jungle — to create a dream-like world that sounds sort of unlike anything else happening right now, and will hopefully expose a wider audience to this kind of alien underground dance music:
