Mashmellow has released their debut single “Share It” on April the 8th (on UK based Revolver Records) with a stunning video to match. The song is nice blend of post-punk sounds, and dreamy 90’s indie-pop, reminiscent of the likes of The Sundays and Adorable, but with a new sheen in the style of bands like Hatchie and Hazel English. Mashmellow themselves say: “Share It” was influenced by Alvvays’ eponymous album. It was an informed decision to use this simple musical language with all these guitars in the foreground, because you don’t need to reinvent the wheel to convey this idea of pure joy”.
Mashmellow are a new Moscow-based dream-pop duo. Band-members Masha Shurygina and Egor Berdnikov were both born in Russia’s Far East and met each other in Moscow in 2018. They decided to make music together because they shared a mutual love of early 90’s dream-pop. Masha and Egor were no novices to the music industry at the time of meeting: Egor is a member of Russian indie-rock band Hospital – which we featured before here on Fadeawayradiate – and singer Masha Shurygina has a background as an acoustic live performer, and is most certainly an eye-and ear-catching frontwoman for this fresh but nostalgic indie-project.
