Finland’s gothic/doom shapeshifters HANGING GARDEN share the first single from their forthcoming live EP „Citylight Sessions“, due for release on April 19th via Agonia Records. The EP sees the band shifting towards intimate dark rock & atmospheric synth-pop on five remade tracks off „The Garden“.

On „Citylight Sessions“, the Finnish ensemble unveils a journey into the urban and the ethereal. The distinctive release showcases a series of alternative renditions of five tracks from their critically acclaimed album, 2023’s „The Garden“; bringing a fresh, atmospheric perspective to their signature sound.

In an unprecedented move, HANGING GARDEN transforms its sonic landscape by stripping away the familiar cloak of gothic doom metal. Instead, the band embraces a lush symphony of synths, ethereal guitar soundscapes, and drum machines, creating an intimate and hauntingly beautiful experience.

„Citylight Sessions“ was recorded during an intimate live performance at the contemporary gallery space of the design company Paja & Bureau. The juxtaposition of HANGING GARDEN’s haunting melodies against the backdrop of Paja & Bureau’s innovative design space creates an experience that is delightfully distinct from conventional music venues. The entire performance was filmed and is expected to be unveiled in video format with the EP’s premiere.

The mixing, mastering and cover artwork were done by Toni Hatakka.
