The album takes its name from a mythical, one-horned creature.
The album takes its name from a mythical creature found in medieval Muslim bestiaries. Resembling a unicorn in appearance, the Shadhavar has a single, hollow horn with a number of hollow branches that produce sound when wind blows through them.
Consisting of two long sound collages, Kepla uses field recordings and audio salvaged from online sample libraries to create what the label describes as “an impressionistic statement inspired by narratives of alienation and ruin.”
Within The Gaze, A Shadhavar arrives on October 25 and is available to pre-order now. Check out the album artwork and tracklist below.
