Russian Baths is a New York band that lays the noise on thick for their fuzzy and heavy, yet harmonious post-punk/psych sounds. Big riffs, hooks, dissonance, and squealing feedback are all over their music, which feels both exhilarating and a bit haunting at times. The band — comprised of Luke Koz, Jess Ress, Evan Gill Smith, and Steve Levine — stopped by Serious Business Music in Brooklyn to share their songs with us.
Penance EP is available now on cassette, via Good Eye Records.
