Russian celestial blackgaze trio TRNA have released the video for the new single “Shining” (Feat. Gaerea).
The song appears on the new album Istok, out September 3 via the fabled Candlelight Records.
TRNA want to take you on a journey. Not to their Russian homeland, but beyond that — to a place not on any map, where the trio’s dreamy music can properly get beneath your skin and into your mind. With Istok, their fourth album and first for Candlelight, theyr’e pushing even further into the unknown.
The band formed in 2013 in Saint Petersburg, following the breakup of similarly blissful-minded outfit Princ Persii. Though not wanting to limit themselves to a genre, the tag of “celestial blackgaze” fit so well that it stuck — descriptive enough to catch their vibe, loose enough to have no walls. The band lists artists like Wolves In The Throne Room, Panopticon, Amenra, Godflesh, and shoegaze pioneers Slowdive as influences. But TRNA exist very much in their own otherworldly space.
