Since their debut album A Swarm Of The Sun they have released the two critically acclaimed full-length albums The Rifts in 2015 and The Woods in 2019 on Erik Nilsson’s label Version Studio Records. The band is known today for their chilling, emotional and sometimes unsettling take on post-rock. On their debut Zenith the band explored their identity through sounds, influences and collaborations in what they describe as a long and immensely important process: «CZenith is such an important album to us. It is the result of many learnings, struggles and distractions that enabled us to find our path, but most of all the people that are now so crucial to our music and who we are».
