Ur Tajgan - Reign
A long, endless cinematic road
'Oktober' is released on October 1 and is Ur Tajgan's fifth single. The single is a sequel to 'Reign' which was released in March and was hailed in music blogs, aired on national Swedish radio P3, college radio and was featured on Spotify's 'New Music Friday Sweden' and 'Indie Highlights'.
'Oktober' is like a long, endless cinematic road. Like sitting in the car northbound but not getting anywhere. Ur Tajgan's characteristic motor-like drive together with the shoegaze-influenced psychedelic sound says as much about the abandonment in 'Oktober' as the night black text itself.
Ur Tajgan intertwines modern sounds with the old through alternative rock influenced by 60s and 70s psychedelia, which is done without being nostalgic or worn. It is rhythmic, melodic and atmospheric. Hard but nice, and not too complicated. The music speaks largely for itself, and maintains a clear live feel, unusual for the time we live in.
Ur Tajgan was formed in 2017 in Luleå by the brothers Arvid and Erland Löfgren and debuted the same year with the single "Helios". The band has since released additional singles and live sessions. The remaining band members have been and are active in other constellations (Raring, MILYON, Statik Eyes) on the Swedish music scene.
