With their self-titled debut EP via Strangers Candy due in September, Helsinki collective, Cina Polada, are back with their first release in around 2 years.
Lead single, ‘Gloom‘, is pure, unadulterated, vibrant indie pop. With its raindrop guitars and incandescent vocals cascading over it like rays of sunshine, the contradiction to its title and such notable lines, “I’m just a waste of time”, prove how music can act as a means of catharsis no matter what form it’s delivered in.
This calls back to bands such as Let’s Buy Happiness who left a gaping hole upon departure. ‘Gloom‘ is a confessional with emotional charge, bathe in its resplendent, glacial charm.
