The new single from Finlands’ Craneium is called “Sands Of Gold” and it oozes of Heavy Blues Rock, desert sand and gasoline. But it’s more than a Heavy Rock tune with a lot of drive, it’s also a song filled with hope.
The stand alone single was written during the sessions for the bands’ latest album “Unknown Heights” (2021). The band recorded the song at V.R. Studio in Turku together with Joona Hassinen from Studio Underjord.
Guitarist Martin, who also handles the lead vocal duties on the track, explains: “The line “we all must do our part / got a new world here in our hearts” is inspired by a quote by anarcho-syndicalist Buenaventura Durruti. The song is about believing in your thing and staying true to your ideas, even if it at times may seem dark. Something we all could use a little more of right now.”

Finnish Heavy Fuzz Rock outfit Craneium blends classic riffing with dynamic atmospheres. Through a constant ebb and flow of light and Heavy they explore the vast underground and draw influence from the 70’s Hard Rock, 90’s Desert Psychedelia and their many masters.
Craneium was formed in 2011 in the Finnish town of Turku. Since then they have sweated themselves through almost 100 shows around the Nordic countries and Europe, most of them booked by the band themselves. Over the years Craneium has warmed up crowds for bands such as Skraeckoedlan (SWE) and Mars Red Sky (FRA), just to name a few.
This band loves playing live and on the stage is where their music finds its definite shape. They’ve played everything from basements and Rock clubs to alternative festivals such as the Swedish Psych Rock mecca Krökbacken and Estonia’s Skeneraator Festival.
Craneium has released two albums through California label Ripple Music, an independent cassette release and two split vinyls with 3rd Trip (FIN) and Black Willows (CH). Their third album “Unknown Heights” was recorded and mastered by producer Joona Hassinen (Studio Underjord) and released during the autumn of 2021 on The Sign Records.
