I ‘ve always had a soft spot for the aural emotions and unique immaculate atmospheres crafted by the Helsinki-based duo of Tuomas Alatalo and Henna Emilia Hietamäki, with the recent addition of the violinist Sanna Komi, aka Cats of Transnistria.
‘Candy Man’ is the new single from their forthcoming sophomore album ‘Opium’ out 2nd February, 2018 on the ever excellent Soliti label, another profoundly heartfelt, evocative and blissful journey into ethereal and emotional darkly soundscapes made of minimal sparse guitar layers intricately interwoven with the bewitching and mesmerizing Henna’s voice.
A burst of bedazzling brilliance that will awaken your senses.
Enjoy the beatiful above visuals consisting of a re-cut of the visually enthralling film ‘Svengali’ (1931), re-edited by Heta Saukkonen and Henna Hietamäki. ‘The story of the film is based on the mind controlling musician who hypnotises a young belle to fall under his spell. The themes of love, submission, and control are repeated within the story of the song’.
Keep up with Cats of Transnistria :
