Distorted Soviet Retro Chic
GROMYKA is a rock-group formed in Petrozavodsk, Russia, in 2014.
The group’s name is a reference to Andrei Gromyko, the Soviet foreign minister. In Russian the word is also reminiscent of ‘thunder’ and ‘noise’.

To define their music, GROMYKA coined the term heavy psychedelic twist reflecting three parts of their sound: heavy, thunderous rhythm section, psychedelic sounds produced by bizarre stylus-operated synthesizer Stylophone 350s coupled with a glockenspiel and ‘proclaiming’ and ‘formidable’ vocal, influenced by Soviet ’60s ‘patriotic twist’ singers like Muslim Magomaev.

While claiming many influences (from Joe Meek to Oberiu ’20s-’30s avant-garde literary group) GROMYKA’s image (Politburo chic) and sound are unique, producing a convincing albeit surrealistic effect.

Since uploading their early songs on Soundcloud, GROMYKA have toured in Russia. They are currently recording their second album and the first is due for release soon.


Maxim Koshelev — vocal, glockenspiel;
Nikita Vlasov — guitar;
Pavel Frolov — Stylophone (Faemi on early sessions);
Andrei Petelyaev — bass guitar;
Petr Vaskovsky — drums.

Throwing by javelin

We are sitting in the stand
And we drink anything
When will it start
Throwing by javelin.

We are sitting in the stand
And wait a little
Palarrel bars
And throwing by javelin

We are sitting in the stand
Someone jumped with a pole
But closer to our hearts is
Throwing by javelin
