The 60th track on our free download compilation “Face The Beat: Session 4” (featuring 92 tracks) is by the female/male fronted Russian dark wave act Purple Fog Side.

Founded on October 12, 1996 Purple Fog Side are truly Russian Goth Scene veterans who reinvented their own vision of darkwave, dark ambient and dark electro in early 1996. Technically heavily inspired by early 90s experimental techno and electro-industrial acts, they gave this sound a new fresh vision of what they call ‘modern goth music’. Since the 00s their style is more refined and incorporates synthpop and EBM.

The band consists of the talented singers Pavel Zolin, Veronica Yakovleva and guitarist Art Nekrasoff. An act which deserves being known outside Russia, so here’s your chance to discover a great act. Check their Facebook page to stay connected.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.

The donations are safely powered by Paypal.
