Dive into the Abyss With the Psychedelic Shoegaze of HORTE ‘Maa antaa yön vaientaa’ LP

I think about the human body as a miniature world, just one dimension existing in infinite dimensions. Just like our planet, we’re inhabited by billions if not trillions of organisms doing an intricate, symbiotic dance throughout our lives. Just like our planet, we can go our whole lives only knowing what’s on our surface, never diving deep enough into the abyss to learn what essential parts of ourselves exist there. That’s why music like the psychedelic shoegaze of Finland’s HORTE is so important. It’s like a meditative expedition into what lies inside. HORTE guides you into places where you may find what you fear the most, but you’ll also experience the most triumph, the most joy, the most satisfaction. Their use of field recordings and sound collages builds a massive yet distinct soundscape that’s so much deeper than what you initially hear. Their new record Maa antaa yön vaientaa (“Land Lets the Night Grow Silent”) comes out on August 27th via Pelagic Records — pre-order it here. Right now, we’re excited to share the entire album with you below — we recommend you sit down with a good pair of headphones and let HORTE show you your inner landscape…
