Midstride Crisis travels in time and space

Midstride Crisis – A Small Chronicle of Times and Spaces

Mikko Väärälä – also known for his other Komitea connections as the percussionist of Princes of Nigeria and the drummer of Zaquatic – debuts as a Komitea solo artist with his cinematically atmospheric project, Midstride Crisis. The ep A Small Chronicle of Times and Spaces does exactly what the title promises, and dives deeps into very scifi-esque themes. The soundscape takes a bow to prog rock traditions, while simultaneously mixing them with modern – or should we say prefuturistic – electronic music influences.

Despite of the epic sound, Midstride Crisis is a one-man band. With the exception of the violin sample heard on the song Run All Your Life, all the instruments are played by Mikko. He is also responsible for compositions, lyrics, arrangements, recording, mixing, mastering, cover design and vocals.

You can listen to the record on every digital music platform invented by human kind – and of course right here:
