Cats Of Transnistria announce the release of their debut album, Divine. The six track album will be available via Soliti on the 18th March 2016.
“The most important purpose of creating music is healing. When it comes together, muscles relax and it’s easier to remember what’s worth remembering and to forget everything that’s in the way of that. There are places in our souls that keep getting buried and need to be dug out. Total honesty is the only way to the divine. If the ritualistic powers of music are not supernatural, they are at least otherworldly, beyond our understanding. Through these minimal yet embracing soundscapes we try to save ourselves from reality, like cats purring to ease their pain. ” This is how the duo of Henna Emilia Hietamäki and Tuomas Alatalo of Cats of Transnistria describe their debut album Divine.
To pathe the way for you to get a greater understanding of Cats Of Transnistria’ s debut album, listen to opening track Let It Happen This Way.
They describe Let It Happen This Way thus: “The song has a peaceful, hedonistic deathwish. The sirens are singing a lullaby as one is stepping out of consciousness in a darkening forest, wishing to fuse with the air and to merge with the moss.”.
