Superfjord - All Will Be Golden (2018)
The second album from this band from Finland.
The band is a sextet with a lineup of bass, guitars, synths, keyboards, programming, percussion, drums and vocals.
I did not have the chance to hear their 2014 debut album so this is my first meeting with this band.
Finland has got some good psychedelia and space rock bands. Hidria Spacefolk and Circle is among those bands.
Superfjord can now be included too in this list of Finnish bands.
Their take on psychedelia and space rock has a lot of fusion influences. It is not particular outer space like. It is more like a trip to the moon or there around. There are indeed some early Pink Floyd in their music, yes.
There is a lot of dynamic music and some outer-space samples on this fifty minutes long album. That blended in with some pretty naive, quirky melodies and vocals.
There is not much vocals on this album, though. It has a nice, fine balance of bass, keyboards and guitars.
This is indeed an album which surprises me a lot and that in a good way. There is no killer tracks here and that is the only gripe I got with this charming album. Check it out.
