Orkid – Suruaika EP release / 25.04

Miercuri, 25.04. 9PM.

The Post-Traumatic Bluesmen of Orkid are returning to Expirat with a more cinematic and visually enforced project than ever before.
Suruaika is a giant and incredibly powerful cat, that we all met at some point in our life, with little or now acknowledgement of its true nature.
It is also the name of the first instrumental EP/soundtrack that Orkid will release on that spring day and the title of the animated short film Vlad and Radu are working on these days.
Their second release of the day will be a short trailer for the movie project.

Orkid is a crazy bunch of angry shoegazers that share a great respect, admiration and love for all the beasts of the world, particularly for the sea monsters. The Bucharest based quartet on a continuous and neverending quest for improving the means of communication between marine, terrestrial and extraterrestrial life forms.

Their first album, Standing Still in the Dark (October 2016) is available here:

Also available on Apple Music, Google Play, Amazon, Pandora, Deezer, Tidal, Microsoft Groove, ClaroMusica, Saavn, MediaNet.
This year they released another two singles:
Beasts Apart
