POSTCARDS FROM ARKHAM – NEW ALBUM ‘SPIRIT’ – OUT NOW
Please welcome “Spirit”! This brand-new release is a compilation of eight songs of an atmospheric-folk arrangement. The album art features the enigmatic owl figure that first appeared in the “Owls Not What They Seem” music video and became a regular companion of the band since the Manta & Dissonance Tour. The new piece was recorded between March and August 2018, but the idea for an acoustic effort is far older. Single and lyric video:
“The main inspiration, in this case, were albums “The White” by AGALLOCH, “Damnation” by OPETH and “Dethroned and Uncrowned” by KATATONIA”, says Marek about “Spirit” and adds: “I always wanted to create a purely an acoustic piece, carrying this idea in my head for about ten years, and now it has become a reality.” The fact that acoustic arrangements are particularly attractive for POSTCARDS FROM ARKHAM is attested by more
than 20 unplugged shows, which the band performed during the special “Busking Ritual” tour, as well as outside of it (and it is worth noting that these acoustic shows are far from over). It was nonetheless on this unique tour – which combined busking performances in parks, streets and squares with evening acoustic shows in cafés, teahouses and bars – that
the final decision to make such an album was reached.
“Spirit” is however not only an acoustic best of album, but also constitutes an important item in the discography of POSTCARDS FROM ARKHAM, as it bridges the last studio piece “Manta” and its upcoming successor that will take shape in 2019.
In conclusion, a recommendation from Frodys himself: “Spirit” is best enjoyed either in a teahouse or during the rainy days of autumn.” So, get your audio gear ready, for autumn is coming and this album shall be your faithful companion in it, whether in longing for the sun’s warmth or in underscoring the autumn melancholy.”
