wrote about the then EIMIC "Poster"
Starting with the album "Amber", the group changed its direction in the direction of electronic dance music.
An important aspect of the whole work of the group is the visual component. Almost from the moment of its foundation, the group has been working in tandem with the artist Ilya Kolesnikov, who is the author of the covers of the released albums.

2005-2011: Getting Started - Albums 4 and Automatic Movements
The first studio album, entitled 4 , recorded after two years of collaborative experimentation and creative research in Canada at Chemical Sound Studios, resonated in the domestic press and in the community forming around the group. For two years, with their debut album, the group gives numerous solo performances in Russia, performs at the opening act of 65daysofstatic and Red Snapper . EIMIC are also invited to perform at European festivals such as the Open'er Festival (2008) and Ilosaarirock (2009). The Rolling Stone columnist howled about the band as follows:
|... Everything is made in China is one of the best domestic indie rock bands and one of the most enjoyable discoveries of our independent scene. [one]|
During the summer of 2009, the group worked on recording everything at the same studio in Canada - Chemical Sound, with sound engineers Dean Marino and Jay Sadlowski. First of all, EIMIC took a noticeable step away from the post-rock, in which they were once in a hurry to enter, and the new album is much more focused on songs. Not going to give up on guitars, the group expanded its sound space through electronics and analog keyboards. The second album, dubbed ' Automatic Movements' , was recorded two years after the release of the first. In support of the album, the single "Automatic" was released in October 2009. The album itself was released in December.
|... "Automatic Movements" is a completely different matter; the music is delicate, subtle and quivering .... The entire album is extremely consistent in its construction of castles in the air; perhaps there are few outstanding songs on it, but it is as a whole that it makes an extremely encouraging impression.|
