The Israeli-Russian duo thewalkingicon has just unveiled its new full-length album, “We Are Memory”, out now via Negative Gain Productions. The album took almost three years to finalize since the band’s last release. The duo brings a blend of synthpop, indiepop and electropop.
“These were the hardest years of losing friends, self comfort and even the whole world as everybody knew it; all that is a memory now,” so the band says. And they add: “But until we remember the people we loved, the people who’ve gone, they are alive in our minds. Dusty photos, old portraits of the ancestors, their eyes looking at us from the pictures. Empty places full of trails and spirits. We populate them with our memories. We live through our memories. We are made of memories. Our whole world is our memories. We are memory.”
thewalkingicon project is a Russian/Israeli duo formed by the member of rock and industrial acts from 1990-s Crocodile T.X. and Thaivox Dmitry 033 Osipov and Koenigsberg electronic and goth artist Sasha Rempel.
Below is the video for the title track, “We Are Memory”.

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.
