about

"...woodwinds, hand drums, and guitar twang tracing links between pagan rituals under the midnight sun and Indian ashrams half a world away." - SPIN

"“Pines” is a feel good badass shamanistic pop prayer. It’s a gem in a sea of information and time. It pokes out through the corners of its foggy, smoky caverns and invites you in." - Sound Colour Vibration

Helsinki-based four-piece Kiki Pau began as a rather traditional guitar pop group in 2007 but changed their course radically right after the release of their second album. Giving up on the verse-chorus form and focusing on inner space/time-traveling were key elements that gave birth to Kiki Pau's new sound and third album, Pines. Heavy on extended guitar jams and effect-driven soundscapes, the album is made up of extended pieces that whisk the listener away on a lush, musical adventure.

Mixed by Gustav Ejstes (the main man of renowned Swedish psych-rock band, Dungen), Pines is a rewarding and exciting listen. It sits at the crossroads of classic jam-rock á la The Grateful Dead, late sixties psych-pop, British psychedelic folk, space rock and 70's kosmische musik.
