We're super proud to offer the premiere of the awesome new video by Autoheart titled 'Moscow'. The indie-pop track is an excellent summery offering but is dense with a highly important message about the freedom to love who you want without prejudice and conviction, which isn't a right for some in some parts of the world. The band explain this in more detail below.

Autoheart are releasing their debut album Punch July 15th, which is set to be a slamming offering. The album was produced by Danton Supple (Coldplay, Ed Harcourt, Morrissey) and available to pre-order from iTunes.

Read what Autoheart have to say about 'Moscow' here:
Moscow is a song about the daft optimism of being in love, when you just want to run away with that person, dream about being together forever, the house, the dog, and nothing else matters.

It has long been one of our favourite tracks – and for us, it has more relevance now than ever.

We are lucky in Britain to have laws that mean whether we are gay, straight, bisexual or anything in between, our relationships are recognised and our rights protected by law. But in Russia there is an anti-gay crisis happening right now: their government does not want to afford their people those same rights and are trying to criminalise even the discussion of gay equality.

Something similar happened in Britain not long ago: Section 28, brought in by Thatcher’s Tory party in the Eighties to stop teachers from talking about same-sex relationships in a positive way, was only repealed in 2003.

These laws only serve to protect intolerance, ignorance, homophobia and hate crimes.

In our video, two gay Russian soldiers kiss in front of the Kremlin – yet just last month same a group of same-sex couples in Moscow were violently attacked and then arrested for doing just this.

If you didn’t know this was happening, go online, and read about it.

Show your support and love to the LGBT communities of Russia and their friends, who are faced daily with violence and the criminalisation of love and of freedom of expression, in every possible way that you can and sign this petition

Wouldn’t it be amazing if one day everyone all consenting adults could be free to love who they want to without fear of persecution?
