THE RUSSIAN FUTURISTS feat. RUTH MINNIKIN “ONE NIGHT, ONE KISS” and EUROPEAN TOUR
"The Russian Futurists have perfected their sugary electro-pop sound” NYLON MAGAZINE

“Adorable boy-meets-girl indie pop. Their cheeky lyrics pulse with a surprisingly danceable beat”
MARIE CLAIRE

“His wide smile never gets tiresome”
SPIN MAGAZINE

Get “One Night, One Kiss” at iTunes here!

The Russian Futurists, aka Matthew Adam Hart, and Heavy Blinkers crooner Ruth Minnikin trade verses in this sugary duet about hooking up. "One Night, One Kiss" is a playfully seductive clip shot by fashion photographer Angus Rowe MacPherson, set in our idealized memory of youth, playing with the song’s sense of aching wonder at the discovery of new love. A couple meet while hanging out with mutual friends, they share a magical moment of hopeless romanticism at the party; their friends become nothing more than blurry, insignificant light and colour as the two lovebirds ditch the scene, set out on an all night journey through the early morning to her apartment, which they proceed to tear to shreds as they flirt their way through costumes, candy jars, lamps, tables, and anything else in their path keeping them from their ultimate moment of this one night, this one kiss.
