Celebrating the November 16th release of The Weight’s On The Wheels with two shows in New York City and a string of dates this week on the Eastern Seaboard ending in Chicago, The Russian Futurists return home to play at Wrong Bar (1279 Queen St. West) on December 2nd.
The Weight’s On The Wheels is catching some serious love, from Marie Claire, Spin and iTunes to Radio 3, KCRW and KEXP!
“Pulsating beats and danceable synths explode into listeners’ ears right from the beginning” Filter Magazine
“Listeners are engaged, blessed and never let go…35 minutes of
silver-pop uplift and aural synthetic caffeine” Globe and Mail
“Hart reasserts himself as one of Canada’s finest party-starters… From the rollicking electro-pop of “Hoeing Weeds Sowing Seeds” to the frantic, neon strobe-lit pulse of “Tripping Horses,” this disc is a beat-heavy blowout that blends pop with hip-hop and adds a dash of pill-fuelled madness.” Eye Weekly
“adorable boy-meets-girl indie pop. Their cheeky lyrics pulse with a surprisingly danceable beat” Marie Claire
“Dancefloor Dynamite” iTunes
“Move over Katy Perry – I’ve found my summer anthem” Fashion Magazine
“a mini-fantasia with an unstoppable peppery groove…Toronto is a cooler city now that this record is in the world” Globe and Mail
Canadians everywhere may have gotten DVAS all to themselves earlier this summer, but it's time for the rest of North America to tap into one of the better electro-pop dance albums of the year with Society.
Similar to the first time you heard Chromeo's 'Fancy Footwork' or 'In The Morning' from Junior Boys, DVAS will drive you through the night the same way Daft Punk did for us back in 2001.
Thankfully, DVAS tosses all that funk and disco into Society right from the start with the title track -- & make sure to stop and listen for the DFA influenced "Inner Sanctum."
Our suggestion? Throw a party. Invest in a disco ball. Play this album. You will probably get laid.
