Post-rock is cinematic by definition, a genre so often focused on suspenseful build-ups, transporting atmosphere, and bombastic climaxes naturally borrows itself to film and docu scores. Some bands however, take this intrinsic value and develop it further, fleshing out a real soundtrack to an imaginary movie, scoring fanciful sights and images with the same vivid tangibility of reality. Lost in Kiev’s debut album Motions, it’s just that, an evocatively powerful soundtrack to a windingly epic journey. Released in 2012 (and reissued on vinyl the following year), Motions is as grand today as it was upon release, already hinting of greater things to come for the band, and the European scene. Motions is essentially a soundtrack, an album skilfully designed to transport the listener to a world of their own, to tap into our imagination and conjure up real images before our eyes. Lost in Kiev simply provide the score, the rest is up to us to fill.
The strongpoint of this album, is in how by leaving space and room for interpretation, the band makes us listeners masters of our own make-believe, and the freedom to replay the adventure countless times, changing how things pan out at will. As the band cunningly says “[Motions is] inspired by numerous, short and long time travels we all have made. We have juggled with various styles, from melancholic post rock to heavy post hardcore and some epic metal”, Motions is the soundtrack of a movie where everyone should decide whether he should stay or go”, an aspiring cue to get you started, the rest is fully up to you. So let it transport you however it might be and embrace the journey.
To celebrate the 10th anniversary of this epic release, dunk!records is proud to present, in collaboration with Voice of the Unheard Records, a special repress of the album, with reworked artwork, featuring gold foil and UV spot varnish details, and a brand-new variant designed in close collaboration with the band.
