Yndi Halda

MP3: Yndi Halda - Dash and Blast

Hailing from the United Kingdom is Yndi Halda. They just released their ep "Enjoy Eternal Bliss" (which is what their name translates to, so I guess it's really self titled) this month. They must be doing something right because it seems like it's out on labels worldwide: Big Scary Monsters in the UK, Burnt Toast Vinyl in the US, Xtal Records in Japan and Avant Garden in Taiwan. Wow!

The band's music is huge. They're doing something right in the hit or miss instrumental genre and really are worth a damn. "Dash and Blast" starts off slow, led by a string part before building and bursting into something textured and epic. Yndi Halda evoke feelings without words and tell stories told through music and imagination.

The mp3 for "Dash and Blast" I was given by the label is edited, so you'll have to buy the disc to take it all in. But if this sample does anything for you (like it did for me), you'll be seeking it out asap.
