Murmansk started making their distorted, feedback -filled music back in 2003 in Helsinki, Finland. Our music is bass-driven, our melancholic melodies come wrapped in distorted guitars, female vocals and dramatic drums (was everybody mentioned?) – you could call it shoegaze with aggressive edge. And yes, of course people have come and gone along the way… The current line-up dates from the beginning of 2008: Olli (bass), Laura (vocs, guitar), Jaakko (drums), Jari (guitar).
The band’s debut album Chinese Locks was released in 2008, which was followed by Eleven Eyes To Shade in 2009. Murmansk has shared stage so far with such acts as Karnivool, Liars, Kinski, A Place To Bury Strangers, dEUS, Tuvalu and Zombie Zombie.
