Swedish psychedelic hard rock band GAUPA is getting ready to enter the studio and record its second album and successor to the highly acclaimed full length debut Feberdröm. To give fans abroad a glimpse of what’s to be expected once GAUPA are able to hit international stages again, they have released a live video for the hauntingly beautiful song Mjölksyra, which was recorded at Kulturhuset Falun in April 2020.
Check out both the live version and the surreal official music video below. The song is available to stream at the service of your choice.
The band commented: “We’ve been preparing for this studio recording for quite some time now and we’re all eager to show our new repertoire to the world. A lot of new songs to be recorded and a lot of new crazy titles in both Swedish and English!”
Stay tuned for more updates on the album and all live dates to follow!
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. GAUPA then got a chance to release the EP on vinyl via German label Kozmik Artifactz in October 2019 and went on to playing a good number of shows and festivals. Critics were impressed not only by the studio recordings and their diverse & complex arrangements, but also by the level of intensity the band displayed live.
In April 2020 GAUPA, which means “lynx” in Swedish dialect, followed up to release their first full length album, Feberdröm, gaining even more attention from both the underground scene as well as NUCLEAR BLAST RECORDS, who will release their next album in 2022.
