Dima Pantyushin & Sasha Lipsky: “Telephone”

First offering from their upcoming debut album on Beats In Space Records.

Dima Pantyushin and Simple Symmetry’s Sasha Lipsky will drop their debut LP “Peshekhod” on Beats In Space Records.

The first release of the new year on Tim Sweeney’s Beats In Space Records comes from Moscow’s Dima Pantyushin and Sasha Lipsky, one half of Simple Symmetry, with their debut album “Peshekhod” (“peshekhod” translates to “pedestrian”). The 14-track record oscillates through an immaculate synth-pop ecosystem in which every shift feels both accurate in its absurdity and divinely danceable. A window into the inner life of a wandering Muscovite, “Peshekhod” is a picaresque in miniature, a record that explores the stations of the day in deft detail with a distinctly dry Russian wit.

The album investigates the inner narrative of a Muscovite as he wanders through the city, recalls his work, and contemplates his existence. It’s roughly autobiographical in scope— Pantyushin was born and raised in Moscow, co-runs Cafe Enthusiast in the city center, and is a visual artist by trade—yet explores feelings universal. His lyrics conjure the nostalgia and joy of parenthood in “Ray of Sunshine,” the paranoia of metropolitan life on “Pigeon,” and the slippage of time on “Chess.”

Fellow Moscow native and longtime friend, Sasha Lipsky, who writes and performs with his brother in Simple Symmetry, joins Pantyushin on production. Lipsky weaves entire sonic ecosystems for Dima’s instinctual observations and adroit lyrics. The result is a musical landscape that bounces between the terrestrial and the divine as Pantyushin’s croon and Lipsky’s synth-heavy compositions swell with aliveness.

Before it drops, we’re treated to the record’s first fine offering “Telephone”, which comes with a retro style video by Natasha Ganelina.

The “Peshekhod” LP arrives on March 26th via Beats In Space Records.
