Sands of Gold
The Sign Records
Guitarist Martin, who also handles the lead vocal duties on the track, explains:
“The line ‘we all must do our part / got a new world here in our hearts’ is inspired by a quote by anarcho-syndicalist Buenaventura Durruti. The song is about believing in your thing and staying true to your ideas, even if it at times may seem dark. Something we all could use a little more of right now.”
CRANEIUM’s musical style ebbs and flows through instrumental textures and ventures into realms of both the dark and the light. In “Sands of Gold” vast soundscapes are grounded with heavy tones and dynamic rhythms, while soaring vocal melodies convey the track’s narrative.
Formed in 2011 in the Finnish town of Turku, CRANEIUM draw musical influence from 70’s hard rock and 90’s desert psychedelia which feeds into their classic riff-fueled and atmospheric sound. Over their career CRANEIUM has released two albums through California-based label Ripple Music, an independent cassette release and two split vinyls with 3rd Trip (FIN) and Black Willows (CH). Their third album Unknown Heights was recorded and mastered by producer Joona Hassinen (Studio Underjord) and released during the autumn of 2021 on The Sign Records.
