Kebnekaise is technically and expertly confidant as an unapologetic unrepentant exercise in pure joy. This album is high tempo fun-loving bounce around the room fun. Bright and bold this band have a zingy and fresh sound that leaves you smiling. Filed with catchy lyrics and complex harmonies that have been woven together into a bright and shiny web of sound.
On their slower and heavier songs, ‘Hold Me Back’ comes to mind, they grab your attention with powerful heavy chords before bouncing up with strong vocals and rippling drum beats. When thing get slower and more melodic , like with ‘Spanning Time’, they shimmer along with complex guitar solos showing skilful ease and a technical ability many, more established, bands will envy.
This debut album is set for release on 27th August and will feature artwork by Kristian Ingers. 8/10
