Helsinki's Hanging Garden plays with a certain melancholy, disillusionment and gloomy structure, as well as with restrained optimism, harmonies and an overall (dark) warmth. The cautiously developed atmospheres are central to the group's new album, Into That Good Night, their fourth for German Lifeforce Records and sixth overall. Riikka Hatakka has also become an official band member and naturally expands the possibilities with regard to vocal expression and variability. Channeling the deep and numbing melancholy induced by our present reality, Into That Good Night makes a journey to our near future, to a world where a collapse has recently taken place. How would we survive? What would we hold dear, and what would lose it's purpose? The album portrays themes of loss, longing, death and hope through narratives and musings of nameless, fictive survivors in a world devoid of the safety brought by modern organized society, wealth or civilization - a future that doesn't seem so distant anymore.
