Širom - I Can Be a Clay Snapper

The trio Širom’s second album I Can Be a Clay Snapper, released for the world-renowned Glitterbeat/ tak: til label takes Ana Kravanja’s, Samo Kutin’s and Iztok Koren’s musical journey to a whole new level, reaching the audience far and wide.
The band’s emergent sound oscillates between a wide array of acoustic folk sounds and contemporary post rock meditations, often drifting from improvisation to structured composition and then back. It is described by the members themselves as imaginary folk or folk from a parallel universe.
Their Clay Snapper exposes fearlessly textured sonic landscapes, using a cornucopia of exotic instruments from around the globe as well as homemade ones, resonating in the phantasmagoric arrangements, linked to and unbound by the past and present, geography and tradition, the real and imagined. Hypnotic, otherworldly and epic.
