Cats of Transnistria - Opium
Cats of Transnistria have created their own brand of pop music, built from layers of understated synths, guitars and ethereal vocals. For Opium, their second album, they have added a violin and increased both the melodic and dynamic aspects for their sound. The result is deep, swirling and cinematic songs that unfurl at a stately pace, capturing the listener's attention with beauty, exquisite detail, and the promise of continuing sonic discovery. The eight tracks are simultaneously haunting and soothing. We can't stop playing it, and we don't think you will be able to stop either.
Cats of Transnistria are Tuomas Alatalo and Henna Emilia Hietamaki, joined by violinist Sanna Komi. Opium is out on Friday, February 2 via Helsinki's Soliti Music.
