Description

GAUPA (lynx in swedish) is a rock band from Sweden, Falun. With surreal lyrics, an energetic female singer, and a sound of progressive stoner rock with doom/folk/psychedelic influences, GAUPA released their debut EP in June 2018.

Now this great 5 track EP has been spiced up with 2 live tracks which were recorded at Sweden Rock Festival 2018, resulting in a full-length vinyl release carefully remastered by the incredible Tony Reed for the best possible sound on heavy wax!

"Gaupa has already been described as like "Bjork fronting a rock band" and although Desert Psychlist can see where that description is coming from there is far more to Gaupa than an unusual and unique voice placed in front of a rock'n'roll backdrop. First thing one notices about Gaupa (the band) are the levels of musicianship on display here, solid, tight percussion combined with deep growling bass lines are the backbone around which Gaupa's two guitarists lay down diverse washes of delightful and dynamic six-string colouring, the pair not so much going head to head as complimenting each other with a mixture of eastern motifs, shimmering arpeggios, crunching heavy powerchords and scorching psychedelic lead work, however it is the vocal acrobatics of Emma Näslund that many will leave this EP remembering long after the last note of "Gaupa" fades into silence. Näslund has a unique tone and delivery and it is easy to see why those comparisons with Iceland's elfish chanteuse have been made as both singers have that same distinctive vocal elasticity in their armoury, however where Bjork's voice sometimes wanders into shrillness there is a smoother more fluid timbre to Näslund's vocals that is, for Desert Psychlist, far more pleasing and easier on the ear." (Desert Psychlist)
