Unique Swedish rock band GAUPA are excited to unveil the second single from their forthcoming album, Myriad, which is set to be released on November 18th 2022 via Nuclear Blast Records. The song titled Diametrical Enchantress will instantly captivate you with its entrancing half-time groove and singer Emma Näslund‘s unique vocal delivery. As with previous single, RAGAUPA have produced an inventive and trippy, visually stunning music video for the song, which you can watch below.

Emma Näslund (Vocals) comments: “When people hear that you play music, at first some think it’s really cool.
But when it comes down to it they condemn it. 
The time you have to put in to your craft and rehearsals and meetings etc.
Some people think it’s just sliding around in VIP areas on a shrimp sandwich. 
Others would argue that it’s time to give up your “hobby” up and do something “real”.
But some things you can’t stop doing. 
Art needs be created. 
Music needs to be created. 
There is always room for more and it’s important to keep going. 
I guess some people just needs to create music and art or they’ll implode. 
Diametrical Enchantress was the last song we wrote for the album Myriad. It’s freeing because it just came out of us as certainly as mosquitoes in summer.”

GAUPA‘s sophomore album Myriad features eight diverse and exquisitely crafted songs that drift between progressive rock, psychedelic and stoner rock, doom and folk. An eclectic and unpredictable, yet very mature record by a band that is destined to win over any open-minded music enthusiast.

With surreal lyrics, an energetic, very unique singer, and an addictive sound that combines progressive stoner rock with doom, folk and psychedelic rock influences, GAUPA released their self-titled debut EP in June 2018 and have since made a name for themselves in the international underground rock scene. The GAUPA EP was well received and led to the band playing one of their first live performances at Scandinavia’s biggest rock festival, Sweden Rock. Releasing the EP on vinyl via Kozmik Artifactz in October 2019, the band and went on to play a solid number of shows and festivals. Critics were impressed, not only by the studio recordings and their diverse and complex arrangements, but also by the level of intensity the band displayed live. 

In April 2020 GAUPA, which means “lynx” in Swedish, followed up their debut EP by releasing their first full length album, Feberdröm. In 2021, GAUPA re-entered the studio to record their second full-length album Myriad, which will be released on November 18th 2022.
