A couple of weeks ago Zeon Light Skiva released NATTEN Dolce Vita (ZLS_002).
Psykonautdisko, that is how the band NATTEN describes their music, a combination of Psychedelia, Kraut and Disco with a dark and mysterious Swedish touch.
And for sure it´s some kinda of Disco with a steady drumbeat and throbbing bass lines.
On top of that layers of synthezisers and hypnotizing horns.
NATTEN means The Night in Swedish, and as the name refers to and esthetical the band is attracted to the dark realms of this world and the unknown places. Which is perfectly visualized in the two latest videos from Dolce Vita.
NATTEN are from Stockholm and have been around since 2010. The core of members is Robin Donaire, Beats & Electronics, Fredrik Adolfsson, Keyboards & Synthezisers, Jan Sydolf, Bass and Arvid Lärksäter on Trumpet & Saxophone. And for this record they have invited Wendy Akoth Kasera, Tove Rhodinder and Nadine Schjölin on vocals for some of the tracks.
