about

This new project USSR 1926 is a soundtrack to Dziga Vertov's silent movie A Sixth Part of the World (1926).

“Masterpiece, incredible, consuming, tumultuous, visceral, and inspiring are just some of the words I would use to describe USSR 1926 upon my first listen. We Stood Like Kings have outdone themselves. How they have been able to produce such an extraordinary opus is beyond me.”

echoesanddust.com

“À la croisée du post-rock et de la musique classique, USSR 1926 s’écoute comme un joli concerto pour piano et guitare. Les constructions mélodiques sont progressives et travaillées tout en délicatesse. L’ensemble est raffiné et intensément émouvant. Cinématographique, bien sûr. Mais aussi épique et lumineux. À savourer sans modération.”

— Totoromoon

“On USSR 1926, the highs seem higher and the lows seem lower, as the band discovers new emotional heights and depths. (...) This band seems set for a long career of accumulating acclaim.”
