Cykada – Cykada LP [Astigmatic Records; March 2019]
Cykada’s first album release, Cykada, is a colourful mix of styles and activity, condensed into five instrumental pieces. The compositions they have created are both unexpected and groovy. The drum kit sounds melodic and the FX helps to transform the musicians’ possibilities. Cykada take on a lot of music styles: from Afro-futurism to jazz, soul, electronic, rock and creative rhythmic and melodic structures, taking you on a journey. Pieces that came from improvisations but have turned into very full and beautiful arrangements.
