Svetlanas are a punk band from Russia, and Nick Oliveri (Queens of the Stone Age, Kyuss, etc) liked them so much that he joined as their bassist. “The best front wo’Man’ I’ve seen since Lee (Trash Talk) and Blag Jesus (The Dwarves),” Nick said about Svetlanas singer Olga. The band recently released their new album This Is Moscow Not LA (Rad Girlfriend Records / Subkultura Records), which they recorded at Josh Homme’s Pink Duck Studios, and we’re premiering the video for “Let’s Get Drunk.” The video stars Nick and Olga (wearing a Nazi Trumps Fuck Off shirt) driving around, hanging at the liquor store, and just going in nuts in general. Watch it and stream the new album below.
Svetlanas’ only upcoming tour dates are in Europe at the moment, but they’ve played the US a handful of times, including the recent Upstart Fest tour. Hopefully they’ll be back soon.
