CONCEPT SPLIT EP 'BESTIA' — OCTOBER 21, 2021
BESTIA is a concept EP about the human nature of Ukrainian mythological creatures and the world’s duality. In Ukrainian, BESTIA (Ukr. «бестія») means both a savage beast and a mischievous person.
This is a split record that consists of songs by two Ukrainian bands — ERSEDU and IGNEA — and is a result of their 10-year friendship.
BESTIA will be out on all streaming platforms on October 21, 2021, as well as on digipak CD and vinyl.
The physical formats will also contain The symphony of BESTIA — a mix of orchestral arrangements used in the five songs from the EP:
1. Bosorkun / IGNEA
2. Magura’s Last Kiss / IGNEA
3. Mermaids / IGNEA / ERSEDU
4. Black Garden / ERSEDU
5. The Eaters of the Sun / ERSEDU
6. The Symphony of BESTIA / IGNEA / ERSEDU
CD and merch pre-order is already available in IGNEA store.
LISTEN TO THE SONG OF UKRAINIAN MERMAIDS
Our new single Mermaids is out on all platforms. Stream it, download it, add it to playlists, and, most importantly, share it everywhere!
Mermaids is a cinematic song about Ukrainian mavkas (sirens) who cannot find their place anywhere: neither on the shore nor in the waters. Just like humans, they are bored when their life is in balance, and they’re trapped in the problems that they create on their own. This song is a collaboration with our friends IGNEA.
