Official press release:
The Laser’s Edge has signed Malmo, Sweden-based psychedelic/prog outfit, Agusa, for the release of the eclectic outfit’s impending sophomore album this Summer.
With almost forty minutes of new material, Agusa delivers a wide array of seamlessly-executed, organic rock on the aptly titled Agusa 2. The band’s tranquil output blends tripped-out psychedelic and progressive rock structures are inspired by more folk than occult influences, instilling visions of nature, the cosmos, and dreamlike passages, meandering into realms of a possibly supernatural or parallel existence. While not a fully instrumental recording, backing vocal mantras only seep in through purposeful cracks in the construction of these immense movements, adding an even more spacious feeling to the overall flow of the album.
US progressive label, The Laser’s Edge, will release Agusa 2 on CD and digital platforms on July 21st, while Agusa will issue the album on vinyl through their own Kommun2 label. Stand by for additional info on the album to be released in the coming days.
Having just performed at this year’s Roadburn Festival, invited by curators, Enslaved, followed immediately by a set at Copenhagen Psych Fest, Agusa will continue taking their enigmatic live set to fans across Europe with additional performances in the coming months.
