The Grus

The Grus is an experimental electro-acoustic duo based out of a tiny, remote Russian village on the banks of the Volga. Drawing inspiration from influences like early gospel/blues singers, German psychedelic bands, modern trip-hop and experimental electronic music, the duo create their unique palette of sounds using analogue synths, old-fashioned guitars from the Soviet-era, tape recorders and an array of handmade instruments and microphones, as well as the melodious noise of the birds hovering outside the studio windows.
