Siddharta’s new album Infra

source: www.siddharta.net

I’m fully aware that there’s a big chance you don’t have the slightest idea who Siddharta are. They’re a Slovenian rock band, my ultimate favorite band from Slovenia. I’m also aware that you won’t understand their lyrics (although they released their last album in English – listen to it here + here are some of their biggest hits in English). Nevertheless I have to introduce them to you.

This year the band celebrates its 20th birthday, which will be celebrated with 2 new albums. The first is Infra, which was released this past Friday and it’s their 7th studio album. An album Ultra will be published at the end of the year.

I have to admit that I didn’t like it the first time I heard it. I’m otherwise a HUGE fan of Siddharta but I was a bit disappointed because I didn’t find the songs as “their typical”. I miss those dark and mystical lyrics, percussion rhythms which I was used to from their first albums.

But then I listened to it a couple of times and it kind of grew on me. Now this is the only thing I listen to the last 3 days. Obviously they still can do no wrong in my eyes… I mean ears. My boyfriend is teasing me that I’d probably be over the moon even if Tomi (lead singer) would read telephone numbers from the phone book on a stage. Oops. Probably true.

Ledena is the first single from the album. When I first heard it, I had it on repeat literally for days. I simply LOVE it! In one of the interviews Tomi said that this is actually 20 years old song but it never found a space in any of the previous albums.

On the album you can find 10 songs (Ultra will also contain 10 songs, a total of 20 new songs for the 20th anniversary): Dios, Do Konca, Onna, Ledena, Da Sedere, Phat Yuppie, Diamanti, Love Love, Piknik, Gianna. Here’s a live version of Dios:

You can get their whole new album in a digital form on iTunes, Deezer, Bandcamp and/or Google Play. I strongly recommend you to take the time to listen to their songs. To me they’re really one of the best bands ever.

Please, tell me in a comment below what do you think about the album and about their music in general.
