The enigmatic Swedish techno entity with the most unpronounceable name in the history of popular music is synonymous with the darker and more abstract incarnations of experimental techno. Hiding under their hoods in a way reminiscent of the cult metal outfit Sunn O)))), the duo draws from industrial and dark techno aesthetics as well as drone, noise and dark ambient, but their exploratory sound often flirts with IDM tropes as well. Their hypnotic music for the end of the world strikes a fine balance between apocalyptic despair and raver euphoria. They’re coming to Sonica with their current album Kongestion, which, like most of their previous material, was released under the Avian label.
