Lost In Kiev from Paris, France released their first full album Motions on dunk!records in 2013 and proved their live skills at dunk!festival in 2013 and 2014.
Their progressive energy leads to oneiric epic post-rock while still emitting the massive energy of post-rock. Their influences are Russian Circles, Red Sparowes, 65daysofstatic, Cult of Luna, Maybeshewill, Mogwai,...
Nuit Noire, their second full album, is an anthem of the night. Odes to nights of dreams and nights of loneliness that also becomes mystical. The stories (written and recorded by the band) will immerse you in each of these Nuits Noires. As you can deduct from their influences Lost In Kiev's origins are firmly grounded in post-rock. However, more direct layouts of the new tracks, a more airy sound and an electronic touch will reveal their new direction.
"If you love post-metal then make sure not to miss this incredible release." — Will Not Fade
“Nuit Noire pushes Lost in Kiev’s songwriting to an entirely new level, showcasing their ability to write dynamic compositions that seamlessly merge sprawling instrumentation and mood setting samples to weave a compelling narrative.” — Tometal
