Saintfield – Into the World featuring Anne Bourne and Ed Hanley

Into The World by Saintfield

Canadian duo Saintfield have released their neo-classically-inclined, psychedelic ‘alt-world’ single, Into the World; the deeply spiritual release inspires synaesthesia while the profoundly ethereal instrumentals unravel with the finesse of a Ramin Djawdi score.

The multicultural textures in the release evoke an atmosphere akin to what you can expect from the global sensation, Heilung, yet, Saintfield also plays with post-punk and goth-rock elements to bring a connectable sense of modernity to the release that transcends immersive and operates in the realms of the celestial.

Into the World is now available to stream and download via Bandcamp.

Kveda verse Pagan poetry in their latest Nordic folk single, ‘Thorkell Streep’

Kveda is a folk music project that digs far past the roots of contemporary music right into the arcane core of Viking folklore. Their pagan sound may be niche, but their latest release, ‘Thorkell Streep’, is steadily racking up the streams since the release on April 4th.

Their latest release proves that Kveda has exactly what it takes to reach the same heights as acts such as Heilung who have given music fans a taste for soundscapes that speak to you on a tribal level.

With lyrics taken from relic poems and manuscripts and their diverse instrumental arrangements that includes historic instruments  such as bouzoukis, mandolins, nyckelharpas, violas and lyres, Thorkell Streep would struggle to be more authentic. The release that comes with hauntingly mystic chants is as enlivening as it is hypnotizing, hit play and immerse yourself in the meditatively powerful release.

Thorkell Streep is now available to stream via YouTube.
