((The Russian Futurists)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

The Russian Futurists

Ontario's The Russian Futurists are all about the written word. The heartfelt and intelligent bedroom-pop songwriting of creative leader Matthew Adam Hart has been likened to Stephen Merritt and Canadian compatriot, Leonard Cohen. Even big guys like Blur and R.E.M. have sung the praises of this under-the-radar band.

However, The Russian Futurists' profile has been raised considerably with recent successful gigs with Wilco and Pixies, as well stints at CMJ and Pop Montreal. Their bread and butter are intimate, confessional songs that are written in painfully honest and open prose. This is wise music from the depths of one sad soul.
