For over 10 years, LOST IN KIEV have been releasing narrative-driven cinematic post rock opuses that have led them to play renowned festivals like Dunk! festival. Their new song 'Solastalgia', meaning “existential distress caused by environmental change”, is a first taste of the band’s 4th album. With a delicate balance between repetition and variety, 'Solastalgia' carefully builds up to erupt in a wall of sound, capturing the full force of the band’s eco-anxiety.
This new song shows that LOST IN KIEV extends even more the synthetic experiments of "Persona" (their 3rd album released in 2019), without denying the post rock/post metal roots of its beginnings !
For fans of : PG.LOST, Sleepmakeswaves or GOD IS AN ASTRONAUT.

Born 1969, grew up with the NWOBHM sounds, musically educated with cult french magazines that were ENFER and METAL ATTACK, definitely nailed to the style when "The Number Of The Beast" by IRON MAIDEN was released... From 1982, it was clear life would never be the same ! Young & getting wild to the HEAVY sounds of SAXON, VENOM, BLACK SABBATH, MOTORHEAD, Young Fab also discovered thanks to school mates the NOISE, FILTH & FURY of Hard-Core/Punk bands like G.B.H, DISCHARGE, BROKEN BONES but also CRO-MAGS, BAD BRAINS, FUGAZI... and later on, through the 90's, everything that was ALTERNATIVE, EXPERIMENTAL, GRUNGE, INDUSTRIAL (SONIC YOUTH, NINE INCH NAILS, SOUDGARDEN, ALICE IN CHAINS)... Passion & curiosity grew up as years went by ... Fate was SEALED... no turning back ! No Music = No Life !
