Tripping w/ R & D (February 2021)

Information

R&D was formed in 2018 by Emilia Kurylowicz, an artist and filmmaker from Lodz, Poland and Maru Mushtrieva, a writer from Russia, Ufa. Together they are surfing the blurry border between pop and art performance, mixing field recordings, eclectic sounds, and explicit lyrics that should be taken with a grain of salt.

The need to express their ongoing research in a performative way brought them to the idea of this conceptual band. They research stereotypes and patterns that are found in their immediate environment, both real and virtual, which are to be reflected in different upcoming albums, each dedicated to the struggle with one of them.

Their upcoming album Semi-Famous follows up the adventures in post-love city, where the desire to be closer is interrupted by imaginary and real obstacles – the story of emotional rollercoaster of the mysterious socialite and her entourage. Using this character as a point of reference they explore in a playful manner issues such as feminism, male gaze, gender roles, mental health issues and paradoxes of modern lifestyles.
