Toundra premiere third single/video from their upcoming new album ‘Das Cabinet Der Dr. Caligari

TOUNDRA, are immersed in the preparation for their new adventurous album, ‘Das Cabinet Der Dr. Caligari’, in which they have composed a breath-taking original soundtrack (out on February 28th).

They have just premiered a new single and video, available in all platforms that can be watched here: https://youtu.be/cETC15mA3wQ

The band states “This track is probably the most Pink Floyd oriented we ever did. The music clashes with Alan’s disappearance, Francis’ best friend, the true main role in the movie. It’s beautiful to see that the most collective act of the movie is also the one in which we started from improvisation.”

This is the third extract of the movie that has been presented already. 

 “I.Akt” is Available here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F4UQx2F2SLs

‘II.Akt’ is available here: https://youtu.be/jPsg57CpoZo

The film is a quintessential German silent horror film directed by Robert Wiene that turns exactly 100 years old in 2020, and that the band approached it as a dialogue with the listener with the intention of questioning ideas like manipulation, freedom and human nature itself.

Additionally, there’s a preorder with exclusive packs here: https://Toundra.lnk.to/DasCabinetdesDrCaligari

The band stated, “‘Das Cabinet des Dr.Caligari’ is a movie with a very strong visual energy. It’s a film that takes elements of the terror movies to speak about authoritarianism. About how ideas can be controlled and eventually lead a human individual to do the worst things. It was premiered in between-war period, and it represents an advice about the real danger of some ideologies that nowadays are getting a new life across Europe; ideologies based in intolerance. That’s why we like to see this film as historical document that invites to some conscious thinking rather than let ourselves go where intolerants want to take us.”

The artwork has been done by Riki Blanco and it features all the iconic elements of the movie.
