Residing in Gothenburg Khadavra is an experimental psychedelic quartet consisting of Seb Eriksson (guitar), Alexander Eriksson (drums), Jón Klintö (bass) and Nils Erichson (keyboards, guitar). Influenced by diverse progressive acts the band’s music is showing a slight retro appeal. Furthermore they are enriching their psych/space fundament with diverse jazz, folk and art rock impressions. The lyrics are in native language. 2019 saw the release of their acclaimed album Hypnagogia. Hypnaogia was the second album as and the debit from 2015 was A True Image Of The Infinite Mind, and now Khadavra are back with the third album Hologram.
The band states, «We dig deep into the untapped subconscious, seek the unknown within and express what we find in sound. The music inspired by both common and uncommon experiences from ordinary and extraordinary situations. Taking a lot of inspiration from early Pink Floyd, Ozzy-era Black Sabbath, Tool, Opeth, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Slowdive and Swedish prog».
«We find and try to give you all a channel for your emotional and cognitive desires – hope you’ll find a way to tune in! It is also a kind of outlet for our concerns and feelings toward society and the modern kind of “humanity” and its conventions. But remember, we don’t really take ourselves too serious, so you really don’t either – BUT we (and you should too) always respect the music, and the effect it has».
