Russia’s Gnoomes Are Ready To Blow Your Mind

Check out new video 'City Monk'...

Gnoomes are part of Russia's psychedelic underground, a group willing to invent their own universe.

New album 'Tschak!' arrives on March 10th (pre-order LINK), and it's a lysergic journey through distant, uncharted waters.

A self-contained unit, Gnoomes decided to return to their sonic base to shoot a brand new video.

'City Monk' is a mind-blowing return, with director Dmitriy Rategov fusing the clip with a faint air of nostalgia. Gnoomes explain:

"To our minds this video should be an expansion of the universe called 'Tschak!'. First of all we wanted to show the space where we live and create, secondly we wanted to blend it with the strong feeling of nostalgia which is undoubtedly one of the Gnoomes' main engines."

"So we and the director Dmitriy Rategov (Fanset Production) decided to combine some archive/personal retro footage with the new ones that were shot from drone, put our drummer in this environment and see what will happen."

Tune in now.
