A Helsinki based indie rock band Koria Kitten Riot releases a new single, The Earth Will Spin Around, today on the 20th of January 2017 via VILD Recordings. The song is from their upcoming fourth album, Songs of Hope and Science, due to be released on the 27th of January 2017.
The Earth Will Spin Around was one of the first songs to emerge for the new album. At that point the band’s singer-songwriter Antti Reikko felt himself deeply betrayed in his life and kicked in the head. He realized how helpful it was to try and see things in a larger context – the Sun’s still shining and the planet Earth keeps on revolving. The band’s engineer, Simon, said he liked “that one song with a shitload of chords”. Additionally to those chords, the stage is set for mellotron, three-part harmonies and gently messed up sounds.
Koria Kitten Riot are a Finnish Helsinki based indie rock band. During the release of their first two albums, the moniker was mainly a solo output for the singer-songwriter Antti Reikko but on the last two albums Koria Kitten Riot has been a full-fledged band of five people; Antti Reikko (vocals / guitar), Lasse Toimi (bass guitar / vocals), Teemu Vänskä (keyboards / vocals), Olli Rahkonen (guitar) and Eino Anttila (drums). The band have toured their native country as well as Germany – having also recorded their previous two albums mostly in Berlin. Their sound is a combination of indie rock, singer-songwriter Americana and psychedelia.
On their new album Songs of Hope and Science, set to be released on the 27th of January 2017, the band have tie-dyed their guitar pop sound with a 60s folk rock flavour and good-old-fashioned harmony singing. With its lyrics traveling between planets throughout the universe, the album’s themes are intertwined with hope and science.
