Finnish fuzz rock outfit Craneium have unleashed their new single “Sands of Gold”. Oozing with heavy blues rock, lashings of fuzz and hopeful lyrics, Craneium deliver a guitar-driven sound. “Sands of Gold” follows the band’s 2021 album Unknown Heights.
Guitarist Martin, who also handles 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.”
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 have 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.
