Pointless video post - ‘Otterheart’ by Nest

Some awe-inspiring atmospheric darkwave / neofolk from Finland, featuring Aslak Tolonen on the kantele (a traditional Finnish zither) and Timo Saxell on acoustic bass, along with various nature sounds and some deep bass vocals. Great music for calm introspection and accompaniment for reading, and easily evokes images of a misty, chilly coniferous forest in the land of the many Northern lakes, seldom visited by humankind. Came across Nest whilst looking for Bandcamp artists recommended as similar to Fejd, which they’re… um, not, really, except for their general geographical location and some of the lyrical themes. Two very different tempos and styles of folk rock. Still, a highly recommended listen!
