Released as a standalone single today (available on bandcamp) – Fest In Midgard -, which is the second single to appear from Kauna, opens to a quiet strumming in to which the mind prepares for a softly laid celtic ballad only for the scabrous vocal to hurtle though the speakers, immediately cloaking the room in a bewitching Nordic folk-tale of legendary battles in dark forests.

Odd Beholder

A ten track album (available on bandcamp) of drifting melancholia that rotates through the room in gentle undulations which has a sad isolation as the release reflects of a world in which digital pixel connections are, for many, a validation of self-worth.

Loneliness is the third song.

50in15 – Pop – Single Review

The Swiss ambient-electronica project 50in15 revealed a new track within the past twenty four hours.

50in15 - Pop

50in15

As with previous music featured there is an underlying sense of the vastness of the surrounding mountainous landscape, which plays a significant influence in all of the music, resulting in swooping loops of hushed and unhurried synthesis surrounding a shrouded core.

Given the title of the new composition – Pop – one may contemplate there must be a conflict between the two ideas – yet, on hitting play – the conjoin of the juxtaposed themes makes perfect sense with the listeners mind and body slowing in to syncopation.
