SVART SESSIONS: Kairon; IRSE! performing Polysomn in full

SVART Records is at the heart of some of the most exciting and boundary pushing releases that cross our paths here at Roadburn HQ. For Roadburn Redux we’re delighted to have teamed up with the venerable label to present a handful of performances by bands that truly epitomise what the label is all about. It gives us great pleasure to introduce these bands to you, and bring them to your homes this April under the banner of Svart Sessions.

It’s time for these inner-space travellers to embrace technology and perform their first ever streamed show! If you caught their 2018 performance at Roadburn, then you’ll be well aware that our first challenge is to pull them back down into Earth’s orbit before we can even start to think about amplifiers, cameras and microphones…

Capturing much of what is at the very core of Roadburn, Kairon; IRSE! combine prog, space and post rock, shoegaze and krautrock, diving down into the gaps between those genres and digging up previously unheard nuggets of magic. Wrapping the whole lot up in a giant bow of shimmering psychedelia, Kairon; IRSE! are truly the whole package.

When their third album – the mind-bending Polysomn – landed in September 2020, we were at the point that an escape from reality was a welcome distraction, and escape we did. The nine track album catapulted us into intergalactic dreams, through cotton candy clouds and rainbow-tinged otherworldliness; a new dimension was uncovered and we settled in for the long haul.

And now they’ll be beaming straight into our homes, playing the whole thing in full exclusively for us! If ever there was a time to build a pillow fort, sink into the comfort of some blankets and let the experience envelop you – the time is now.

Kairon; IRSE! will perform at Svart Sessions – part of Roadburn Festival which will take place between April 16-18.
