Track Premiere: Kauan’s “Orkidea” is the Doom for What Ails You
I’d never heard of the Russian/Ukrainian doom outfit Kauan before their label, Blood Music, reached out to us about premiering their new track “Orkidea,” despite their upcoming album Muistumia being their sixth full-length. Maybe it’s because they sing entirely in Finnish, despite having no ties to the country whatsoever. But so enraptured was I with their hypnotic, downtrodden doomy vibes that I instantly jumped on board. Sit back and let the rainy day vibes wash over you, the keyboards and piano soothe you, the steady, slow beat lull you into the hibernatory mood of a dreary Finnish (err… Russian) winter. Yeah, the lyrics are in Finnish… but who’s listening to lyrics these days anyways?
Muistumia comes out on November 4th via Blood Music and will be available for pre-order starting on September 17th.
