Residing in Stockholm, Sudakistan initially sound like a Goat spin-off, with their ritualistic chanting and psychedelic vibes.

Once they hit their stride though, this Latin-infused garage rock outfit become an all-consuming high octane riff monster. The impressive Dale Gas taking the early plaudits, this incendiary track is filled with pounding drums and swirling guitars. Yet Sudakistan’s Latin influences allow Caballo Negro to transcend the monotony of the genre.

Whilst these influences tend to remain subtle, Concrete Djungle is a full on Latin psyche assault with hip-shaking beats complemented by intricate riffs.

Caballo Negro possesses a euphoric feel that isn’t expected from an album of this genre, making it perfect for an overcrowded scene that is filled with copycat bands.
