Joi Noir are a euphoric alt-cult-rock band hailing from Russia. The band who have been compared to the Banshees – mainly due to the presence of enigmatic Russian chanteuse Olga Gallo – released their new album Celeste in January 2019. The album already feels like a classic - like something you’ve had knocking around the house for years. 
 Both hailing from Russia, Olga and Igor Plotnikov met in Moscow and moved to Pointe-Noire, Republic of Congo – hence the Noir in their moniker – before decamping to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia where they conceived and recorded the outline of Celeste. “The album encompasses the celestial, the divine, the earth and humankind,” says Olga, who has a BA in Psychology and much experience working with teenagers with drug and alcohol problems. “Did God create man or vice versa? It is about the relationship between all these things.”

Together these disparate, perhaps incongruous, geographical but essentially human elements make up Joi Noir and their wonderful album, Celeste. 
 Produced by Stephen Hague (Pet Shop Boys, New Order) – “I was attracted to her voice and the demos reminded me of the Banshees, Pixies and Pretenders” – and the band themselves, Celeste showcases eleven songs including Wild Way Hope - featuring Hague on bass and synth - lead single, Mercury, Crashers – about others crashing your dreams - and Sample and Hold, a song about ordering a sex doll online.
