Polish post-doom outfit Sunnata have a ritualistic sound to their music and it’s in full effect on “Outlands,” a brand new single from their upcoming album of the same title. Starting with ritualistic percussion and vocals before leading into downtuned, slow guitars, Sunnata’s music sticks out as highly unique.
“We have chosen title track ‘Outlands’ because it lays right at the crossroads of all influences that made our new album’s sound,” Sunnata tell Decibel. “It’s a trance-inducing, shamanic journey with story about sacrifice of self as a way to reveal deeper truth behind it.
“The longer we worked on our third album, the more surprised with outcome we were. ‘Outlands’ was one of the first songs written and it definitely is a good representative of the new record. It shows the shift in our sound, that definitely pushed us more towards modern psychedelia merged with strong 90s influences and a bit of ritualism and doom in the background. We had over a year long journey with this material and we feel that it shows yet another face of Sunnata. We let ourselves loose to go with the flow. No boundaries. This is first taste of what happened. Open your mind and experience it.”
Outlands is out on March 23.
