‘I, Awake’ is the new album from progressive, sludge, horror synth outfit Upcdownc. Following 17 years of producing constant heavy, instrumental, fuzzy noise this will be the band’s first album as a 3 piece. The concept behind the music and artwork is based on the idea of sleep, dreams, nightmares and fears coupled with extreme anxiety and night terrors. ‘I, Awake’ explores the transitions between sleep and waking life.

Album: If Anything Happens To The Cat - Mångata

Band: If Anything Happens To The Cat

Mångata is Swedish for the road-like projection of the moon in the water. Mångata is also the name of our second album. The album is loosely based around the concept of water. Each song harks back to an experience or story revolving around bodies of water. Stylistically we took a different approach than on our first album ‘Sun Drunk Moon’ focusing more on beefing up our sound, producing a more technical yet more melodically layered record.

Mångata contains 44 minutes of new music, spread over 7 songs. The album was recorded at Much Luv studio during the hottest days of summer 2016 with help of producer/engineer Tim De Gieter and was mastered by Swedish producer and Cult of Luna-drummer Magnus Lindberg at Redmount Studios. - IAHTTC
