A mainstay in their home country of Russia, Moscow’s Tesla Boy have been quickly gaining ground over the past year here in America, and for good reason. With a sound deeply seeped in the nostalgia inducing 80s, making it easy to draw comparisons to the likes of Cut Copy, Chromeo, or Holy Ghost, and a fashion-forward style that brings the whole package full circle — the four-person band led by Anton Sevidov has a appeal nearly impossible to ignore, and will undoubtedly be taking over your airwaves soon.
We had the opportunity to catch up with the guys for a quick chat, surrounding their appearance at Escape Music Festival in NYC a couple of weeks back, and dove a little deeper into the unsurprisingly awesome world that is Tesla Boy. Hear details about their recently released ‘The Universe Made of Darkness (Night Version)’ remix album, singing in Russian vs. English, and of course Anton’s favorite leather jacket. They’ve also put together an exclusive mix for us which, we’ll just say, will have you out of your seat and dancing in no time. Jump in below.
