Description

Kiila - Silmät Sulkaset

The music of Kiila has undergone something of a metamorphosis during the past three years. On the new album Silmät sulkaset, the band gently conjures up mildly otherworldly tunes with a peaceful air and feathered eyes. What was once free pop played by two is now free folk played by seven. The language of the songs has reverted back to Finnish, and the human voices rest on a warm texture of sounds from an array of acoustic and electronic instruments. Carefully arranged songs alternate with those improvised on the spot, all bearing the mark of a handcrafted article.

Much has happened since Kiila’s 2001 album Heartcore, then. The band spent nearly two years feeling for a direction and, once confident enough, completed Silmät sulkaset in less than a year (apart from the improvised piece Kiviä ja taivasta which dates further back to a wintry evening in Ulvila). The change in direction can be partly explained by the addition of new members. In the course of three years, five of our friends became bandmates. Juho Kaitajärvi, Markus Mäki, Laura Naukkarinen, Juri Puhakka and Sami Rouhento all brought many influences with them; thanks to their contributions, the new album is the fruit of a collective effort above all.
Niko-Matti Ahti and Sami Sänpäkkilä

Reviews

Dream Magazine #5

Beguiling, beautiful, haunting, familiar and alien. Casting back into long ancestral shadows, but inventively fresh and very alive. Calling forth tribal folk circles around an assortment of unique acoustic instruments, low key amplification, and antiquated electronics humming warmly. Organic psychedelia fills the air with a tangibly supernatural vibe that makes your hair stand on end like a light electrical charge. They can drift and dream so vividly, that when the sounds combine into something more poppy, it's almost startling.[...] An excellent euphoric eight song album, with great graphics.
Geroge Parsons


All About Jazz
These songs rhythmic insistency and brittle tonal textures fuse in a tangled matrix of sadness, brooding and joy.
