When it comes to energetic, catchy and soulful alternative rock, you can’t go far wrong with KOSMODOME, who will be releasing their self-titled, debut full-length album on Karisma Records on the 10th December. And, in anticipation of this pre-Holiday treat, the label has today released the track “Hypersonic”, about which the band had this to say:
When you feel like a failure because a hectic life takes you out of balance, music can be the one thing that gives back a sense of control because it takes you to a different, more comfortable place; escaping reality. However, music and music creation can also end up distracting you from truly facing your issues and maintaining control in life, when you’re always lagging behind.
“Hypersonic” can be downloaded or streamed via a selection of services at this location.
Originally formed by brothers Sturle (guitars and vocals) and Severin Sandvik (drums), KOSMODOME’s riff-based Rock sound has distinctive Stoner elements, all of which fit very effectively within a progressive framework. By expanding their live lineup with a bassist and guitarist KOSMODOME are now able to appear on stage as a four-piece.
On “Kosmodome”, which will be available in, CD, Digital and Limited Edition Green and Black marbled vinyl, the clever song writing of the Sandvik brothers demonstrates how it is possible to successfully bridge the gap between what is considered to be melodic, and the explosive drive of bands like MASTODON, as they recently explained:
We aim to draw listeners into the “Kosmodome”, in all its diversity. Throughout the album, we dwell in the melodic and the groovy; a baseline for deep dives into massive, heavy soundscapes and spacy atmospheres. Instrumental sections are central to our musical storytelling, further supported by our lyrical themes; introspection and wonder, ruminations on the human condition, and frustrations toward contemporary society.
