It has been eight years since Kairon; IRSE! was launched. Since then, the four boys have been following their own path between Shoegaze, psychedelic rock and postrock. With "Ruination" the band even went one step further: instead of relying on their improvisation skills, Kairon; IRSE! worked on new songs for two years. In a conversation with eclipsed guitarist/keyboarder Niko Lehdontie makes a bow from the beginning of the band to the current record.
eclipsed: You just released the second album with Kairon; IRSE!, but you hardly find any interviews. Why don't you tell me how your band started?
His name is as eccentric as his music: the Finnish four-piece Kairon; IRSE! takes us on its second longplayer ("Usubasajuba" was only uploaded at Bandcamp) on a cuddly journey back in time to the 1960s and 70s. Similar to Needlepoint two years ago, they revive the good old Canterbury time and give it fresh impetus with modern style elements.
