Cats of Transnistria create wide and hypnotic soundscapes filled with emotion and ambience. Their unique style of slow and experimental pop music has been influenced by post-rock, classical minimalism, shoegaze, dream pop and sound art. Cats of Transnistria were formed in Helsinki, Finland in 2014 by guitarist and sound designer Tuomas Alatalo and vocalist, keyboardist Henna Hietamäki. Soon they realised they had discovered something interesting and refreshingly intimate in their limited use of instrumentation. After their debut Away EP (2015) Cats of Transnistria have released two full-length albums, Divine (2016) and Opium (2018). On the latter album violinist Sanna Komi joined the duo enriching their sound with beautifully haunting string arrangements. Cats of Transnistria’s music has been noted in international music media from the beginning and they have performed at festivals and distinguished venues in both Finland and abroad. On November 29th Soliti will release Cats of Transnistria’s third album, named Aligning.
