Octopus Syng biography
This band's mastermind Jaire Pätäri has created music, which could be described as neo-classical psychedelic progressive rock. It is quite puritist in it's style, drawing influences from late 1960's and early 1970's psychedelic innovators from both United States (VELVET UNDERGROUND, THE DOORS, JEFFERSON AIRPLANE) and United Kigndom (early PINK FLOYD, THE BEATLES, MARC BOLAN), with PEKKA STRENG's kind hippie spirit lingering nearby. This mixture is pleasant, also personal within the context, and very well crafted song compositions find contrast from free improvisation sequences.
