They were featured on our Finnish edition of ‘5 Artists to Watch in 2016’ and there’s no doubt that the Helsinki-based dream pop/indie act Cina Polada have a LOT of potential. Their new, colourful single, ‘Gloom’, is certainly a token of great things to come!
‘Gloom’ is a soft, bubbly and pleasant stream of musical champagne. The quintet maintains their misty, atmospheric and irresistible charm from previous tracks such as the phenomenal ‘Face 2 Face’ from 2015, but adding a fast-growing groove. The title ‘Gloom’ might seem a little strange considering the lively and energetic drive of the song, but the heartfelt and sweet voice of lead-singer Hilla Miettinen reveals a melancholic tone in the lyrics as she sings: “Nothing can change me, dark shades are everywhere”. Essentially, it’s a song about emotional confusion and soul-searching that impressively makes darkness and an optimistic sparkle come together in the most brilliant way.
‘Gloom’ is the first taste of Cina Polada’s self-titled EP, which will be released on September 29th via Strangers Candy – if you need some dreamy energy, you should press play on the track below:
