If I’m to be honest, I’ve never actually listened to music from Ukraine, but I’m glad that my first listening experience was with Nearr, the solo project of Eduard Tokuyev. He recently released the Pale Youth EP through French label Beko Disques, who keep releasing material from musicians from all parts of the globe (a label overlooked but loved by many). The new EP is 8 tracks of shimmering harmonies and I thoroughly advise you all to listen to the whole thing but the opening track “No Worries” is my favourite thus far. It has such an eerie vibe with those monotone vocals and descending keyboards that make it so damn good. Expect more exciting things from Eduard Tokuyev.
