Volkova Sisters

Borrowing their name from characters in William Gibson’s cyperpunk masterpiece, Pattern Recognition, the London-based Volkova Sisters formed in Budapest in 2009. The “sisters” Gergely Kovacs, Daniel Sandor and Dalma Berger found each other through a shared passion for dark and melancholic 80’s new-wave music. They vowed to create their own visions, inspired by the shimmering distortions of My Bloody Valentine, combined with the dreamy landscapes of Cocteau Twins or European cold-wave, but with a sharper emphasis on industrial pop and their own unique twists of depth, breath, beauty and dynamism.
