After wowing audiences while supporting Kate Nash on tour earlier this month, post-punk duo Vulkano are pleased to offer their song Spider Spider as a free download.
Track Spider Spider showcases the talent of this Swedish duo wonderfully; it’s punchy and boundless in energy. It’s a track that’s certainly not for the faint-hearted. Its sparse arrangement and fidgeting percussion sets a satisfyingly unsettling scene.
Erupting from the coast of Stockholm, Sweden, Vulkano are an explosive new duo pushing punk forward in their own charming way. Uncompromising, extrovert and maximalist.
With a passion for astrology, the paranormal and nature, healing stones, tropical landscapes, mythology and mountains, Vulkano consists of the constantly headbanging Lisa Pyk-Wirström (keyboards/percussion) and the tour de force, the hissing feline Cissi Efraimsson (drums/lead vocals).
For Vulkano, it’s really all about their live show, a power unto itself. If they could, they’d have steaming hot bombastic shows containing choreography, costumes, magic tricks and light displays, creating a world where everything is possible.
Taking inspiration from Pink Floyd (especially the live clips from Pompeii), Siouxie & the Banshees, Bo Hansson, Velvet Underground and films such as Lucifer Rising, Barbarella, Holy Mountain and 2001: A Space Odyssey, Vulkano want to explore the realms of art, music, film, fashion and performance. They want to amaze, make people react and interact and they want to abuse their art school roots.
Back in Stockholm they have their own Vulkano club night, have directed videos including a recent one for Swedish DJ collective Mash Up International and are currently working on their own psychedelic short film. But that’s all by the by, because the real focus is their gutsy, potent punk full of hooks, chaos and straight-up boundless energy.
