Въеби ему, Донателло! (tr. Beat ’em up, Donatello!) is a Russian four-piece band from Moscow. Their music incorporates elements of emo, math rock, jazz, and hip-hop. The band released their first self-titled album in 2016 and instantly fascinated local underground scene. They really hit a raw nerve by screaming about good old childhood days and discovering loss. Around 2018 the band were joined by a cellist and their later single “Кейси Джонс» (tr. Casey Jones) featured a darker, more intimate sound.
Earlier this year Beat ’em up, Donatello! released their second album “Сутки через двое» (tr. roughly as Three-day shift) While embracing traditional emo themes and sounds, this time around the band added electronic textures and noir-ish vibe. Their new songs take you out to the dark, slushy and vicious streets of reimagined Moscow only to submerge you in ever so familiar angst.
