Somnium is depicted by hypnotic motifs, punchy riffs and floating melodies, with elements of blues, garage and psychedelia. The blend of intelligent songwriting, intuitive poetry and momentary improvisations make for a unique sound of weird progressive grooves and obscure complexity. Think Elliott Smith and The Kinks meets Kyuss and Jimi Hendrix at an underground rave.
