Norway’s creators of dark and elegant art rock release new album ‘Soyuz’. It joins a series of concept records that started with the critically acclaimed ‘Night’ in 2007.
A band who are used to seizing headlines with bizarre stories, including The Independent (UK) branding ‘Molok’ as “An album that could destroy the world”, Gazpacho have a holistic approach to the album writing process, imbuing each with a captivating concept. The songs of ‘Soyuz’ are a series of short interconnected stories of people frozen in me, with the tracks “Soyuz One” and “Soyuz Out” written about the first Russian Space capsule and its doomed captain, Komarov. The artwork, designed by painter Antonio Seijas, is inspired by Russian Cold War colours and fonts from the Soyuz One ight era.
