4 stars Can we call them Finnish SIINEU? The answer is "Nein", I consider. Yes, exactly the word like "A revival of Krautrock" or "Novel Krautrock missionaries" can be quite appropriate for SIINAI, who have launched their interpretation of Krautrock in their debut album "Olympic Games". But at the same time, let me emphasize they've not played the copy of Krautrock pioneers but their delightful soundgarden in the vein of Krautrock.

According to their blog and photo gallery, looks like they'd got inspired much upon recording / producing their debut album by lots of impressive, courageous medalists. Their enthusiastic, profound riffs remind us the pleasure for sports with peace and friendship. Anyway their soundscape, as above mentioned, leans toward the pioneers of Krautrock especially like Neu! or Popol Vuh, whereas the phrases have not only sticky, dry-fruity, hypnotic flavour but also promising, powerful, and hearty atmosphere deeply in their core of sound, amazingly. Namely, not simply Krautrock-ish as it is said, but pretty hopeful about the future as their original strategy.

All tracks were created with simple riffs seasoned with deep echoes and earthy depth, whilst upon the centre of their intention should be enthusiasm and pleasure for future obviously. Via The Olympics and the sports there, they give us the feeling of not only the players but also the audience / fans, along with their original Krautrock named SIINAI. What can you see beyond the other side of the mountain with five rings? Guess it be a flood of comfort and hope (for Olympic games and their future both!).
