Ocelot announce their debut album Auringon puutarha, released 25th November 2022 via Soliti.
Forging their way with a series of very well received EP releases, Ocelot finally treat us all to a defining statement of their unique vision with debut album Auringon puutarha. The album sees the light of day on the 25th November 2022. Ocelot tells us of the record; “Auringon puutarha is about a fantasy, both beautiful, naive and disillusioned. It is an album about studying a distant place closely, about obsessing over a life that is out of reach, it is an album about watching and consuming a main character and confusing oneself with them.”
First taste from Auringon puutarha is the single “Vanha Hollywood”.
“Vanha Hollywood is a song about a main character that was forgotten, that never got casted, that never got their own song. It is a song from another place, another life, another story. It is a song meant to be played in dreams and movies and memories. It is a song for everyone who talks about themselves as if they were from a past life.” Ocelot explained. “Vanha Hollywood” arrives on the 30th September.

“It’s wonderful to be able to express the atmosphere of a different world, or even a sense of the other world, with this number of sounds, and the singing voice at the center of it. The repetition in the second half is also euphoric and cool.” Niche Music
“Making us see their strong inspiration in everything that surrounds the most ambient pop of the 60s, along with all those flashes typical of a collected and analog psychedelic format, the trio has been showing us over the last two years the appeasing power of their music” Mindies
“I often find it hard to pigeonhole Finnish music. It is so different – and consistently so, no matter what the genre – from what emanates from any of the other Nordic countries, or anywhere in Europe for that matter, that you have to ask yourself whether they are collectively working at a different artistic level to the rest.” Nordic Music Central
