Post-punk leaning trio Soviet Soviet was born in 2008 on the Adriatic coast of Italy by guitarist Alessandro Costantini, vocalist/bassist Andrea Giometti and drummer Alessandro Ferri. In 2009, they gained notoriety in Europe with a handful of self-released singles and incessant touring. Pitchfork caught wind and said the band "... take a broad view of the genre (post-punk), ignoring timestamps and geographic restrictions to assemble a specimen uniquely theirs," and their influences seemed to suggest "... a passing familiarity with post-punk's steely derivatives, including French and Italian Cold Wave..." The self-released singles were then turned into a nine track compilation titled Nice and re-released digitally by Italian label Tannen in 2011. In the same year, the trio Immediately followed up with the Summer, Jesus EP. In 2013, felte released their debut album titled Fate. felte is now reissuing these two releases leading into the band's sophomore album, Endless, also to be released on felte in October 2016.
