The band Kataokas with the singer Kalle Kataoka at the front has a premiere here on the blog today with the new single “Bad Time to Die”. The song is taken from their upcoming album “Anthesis”, to be released on the 12th of May. They write about the song:

“Kalle has got a friend whose wife passed away a couple of years ago. Her cancer was diagnosed when she was pregnant with her daughter. The cancer was unstoppable and the child lost her mother before age of one. The funeral was all through horrible. No one should have to die that young. Sorrow was hard to bare but at the same time everyone attending the ceremony found themselves smiling and laughing with the child.
The song Bad time to die was composed in the void between hope and sorrow.”

Despite the heavy subject, the song is an irresistable, catchy track which breathes of folky indiepop and sprouting joy of life. Listen for yourself here:
