Polish experimental act Licho have revealed a new video to the track “Nie wiem czy dożyję śmierci” off their latest album “Ciuciubabka”. “Ciuciubabka”, the band’s third full-length album, was released via Pagan Records in digipak CD and digital formats earlier this year.
Watch “Nie wiem czy dożyję śmierci”:
New merch – a T-shirt and hoodie – are now also available to order via the Pagan Records webstore.
The band describes the track as “the elements in the dark, an uncertainty that looks into your eyes and ripples.”
The word “ciuciubabka” translates to the children’s game “blind man’s buff” or “tag” in which one person has a cloth tied over their eyes and tries to catch the others. The album tells the story of what can be seen when blindfolded, the game of hiding and catching what has fallen from the sky. It is also about, as always, walking towards the light. On foot, on horseback, by car, by spirit.
Musically, Licho continues in black metal style as on previous albums, while also taking inspiration from other genres and quoting the poet Jarosław Marek Rymkiewicz. The “Ciuciubabka” album cover features a painting by Wilhelm Sasnal “Polak”.
The album was recorded at Nebula Studio, Czyściec Studio and Garderoba Czorta. Maciej Wasio (Myslovitz among others) is responsible for the mix, and Jaakko Viitalähde (Oranssi Pazuzu among others) for the mastering.
Licho was founded in 2011 in Sanok, Poland by Szturpak. The current line-up has been in operation since 2017 and consists of musicians also known from projects such as Koniec Pola, -S-, Wędrowcy~Tułacze~Zbiegi and Gruzja.
