Tesla Boy is a Russian synthpop/new wave band created in 2008 by audio producer and musician Anton Sevidov. The band consists of four members; Sevidov, Leo Zatagin, Stas "Pioneerball" Astakhov, and Mike Studnitsyn.
From an early age, Anton Sevidov learned music through his father’s old vinyl collection that included Ray Charles, Prince, Stevie Wonder and Blondie. From their beginnings with the release of debut single "Electric Lady" and first LP Modern Thrills in 2010, the sounds of Tesla Boy’s global influences are immediate, with their acclaimed follow-up single "Split", produced to a high level with deep catchy melodies and disco undertones.
Band members Leo Zatagin (bass) and Mike Studnitsyn (drums) complete the Tesla Boy lineup, coming together to round out the trio in 2010. A collaborative project at its core, all music and lyrics, stylistic decisions, concepts, and the direction of music and production, are made collectively. At the forefront, Sevidov remains the heart of the band, with his penchant for charming songwriting, complimented by the band's incredible musicality and tantalizing live shows that have created a cult following in cities across the world.
