This first re-lease from RA on Progress is a worldwide licence from Adrian Recordings. A Must for people that like She Past Away, Agent Side Grinder and similar.
The four creative souls in RA get their energy out of despair, loss, frustration and restlessness. They started out as a psychedelic rock quintet but after just one EP they sadly lost one of their members. The band didn’t dissolve, instead they canalized their friendship into what should become their debut album (Scandinavia).
The album is a whirlwind of punk, feedback, haunting vocals, melodic guitar riffs and pounding bass. The album took the band out on the road and it gained a lot of attention around the world, placing them in some kind of Nordic Noir Post-punk file.
This EP is the first release since the album, and the band has moved forward. This is a more elec-tronic soundscape: it’s gloomy, it’s staring, slower, melodic, almost romantic but equally intense. More voices, less noise – contemplation! ”We left our rough punk sound and tried to explore another feeling, a more romantic feeling. We gave ourself time to think and reflect and worked more with the song structures.” - Simon Minó - drums and vocals
