KYMI combines riddims with acoustic and electronic instruments, samples, and recitations. The soundscapes of the songs
are created through live mixing with echoes and reverbs.
THE NEW ALBUM
"CYCLE OF SEASONS"
MUSIC FOR EVERY MONTH OF THE YEAR
There is something fascinating about the view of time as an endless cycle of periods that renew themselves. Our new album covers the annual cycle, with a composition dedicated for each of the twelve months of the Nordic year. We recommend that you start listening it from the month of purchase, just one song per month, until you have covered the whole cycle 12 months later. How do the songs relate to your feelings of each month? There won’t be too many people who can take up this challenge but if you belong to those rare ones, please tell us next year!
The album is available in March 2020 as a very limited vinyl LP edition and via digital distribution.
