Album Premiere | Älägator, Unen Syvyydessä

In a world full of European bands that sing in English, New York City’s Älägator flips the script, writing Finnish-language tunes for polite, but confused, American audiences.

Formed in 2016 in Edinburgh, UK, by Jemina Amunet and Nate Wagner, Älägator has honed their ’90s-influenced slowcore sound across various locations in Finland and the continental U.S. in the intervening years. With the help of Andrew Scott (bass, synth, mixing/mastering) and Adam Fenton (drums), Älägator presents their debut EP Unen Syvyydessä (“In the Depths of a Dream”) tomorrow, August 7, via Friend Club Records.

Today, the group has the pleasure of sharing a sneak peek of the EP, which you can enjoy below:
