ICM Awards 2018: Best International Act Winner

ICM Awards


After hundreds of votes were collated and verified, you guys all came together and voted for Russia’s very own Indie Poppers Hospital.

Formed in 2011 by members of several Russian indie rock bands, Hospital was the ambitious vision of talented lead vocalist Egor Berdnikov and realised by additional band members, Andrey Tsvetkov, lead guitar and backing vocals, Alexey Shorin, bass guitar and Vladimir Balovnev on drums.

Now with two successful albums under their belt, having supported the Moscow legs of huge international tours, including Lana Del Ray, The Neighbourhood and The Kooks, Hospital are ready to release their third album.

Since conception, the band has developed a heightened depth of sound, adding a hefty measure of electronica to their infectious indie tracks. Their sound is littered with iconic 80’s influence, from Bands such as New Order, Tears for Fears and INXS. The Cure has also been a continuous inspiration throughout the quartet’s discography.

Hospital’s story to date, is testament to the bands huge popularity in their home country, but we should expect the appeal of this energetic fourpiece to be far wider reaching in 2018.
